2016 Ford Focus

In today’s market, drivers in West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, and Jupiter want a dependable compact sedan with family-friendly dimensions and lots of features. The 2016 Toyota Corolla has all of this and more, and it’s back with a new Special Edition version this year. The 2016 Ford Focus is another popular model in this segment, but in the areas that matter most, the 2016 Toyota Corolla excels. Find out how, and make your way to Earl Stewart Toyota in Lake Park, FL for a test drive.

Premium Features

Both of these models offer a number of advanced features, from Bluetooth to heated leather seats and satellite radio. However, the 2016 Toyota Corolla’s Premium S trim comes with a number of features that you won’t find on the 2016 Ford Focus Titanium.

The Corolla’s top trim comes standard with a navigation system, speed proportional power steering, a power sunroof/moonroof, a remote fuel filter door release, and a remote trunk release, making it feel more like a luxury sedan than an economy compact car. The Focus Titanium doesn’t come standard with any of these features, and the remote trunk release features isn’t offered, even if you’re willing to pay more.

Passenger Space

Compact cars can really leave you feeling cramped sometimes, but that certainly isn’t the case with the 2016 Toyota Corolla.

  • 2016 Toyota Corolla: Total passenger volume on the Toyota Corolla is 97.1 cubic feet, spacious dimensions for a vehicle in this segment. This helps it to guarantee extra rear legroom for adult passengers at 41.4 inches. This doesn’t compromise front legroom either, which measures 42.3 inches.
  • 2016 Ford Focus: By contrast, the total interior volume of the Focus is just 90.7 cubic feet. This means a measly 33.2 inches of rear legroom, making it especially tight for adults in back. Front legroom also comes in under the Corolla at 41.9 inches.


While both of these models earned a top score of five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in government crash safety tests, the 2016 Toyota Corolla beats out the 2016 Ford Focus when it comes to passenger safety. The Corolla earned the best possible score of five stars in the passenger front crash test, while the Focus only earned four stars in the same category.
