Features

Is it possible to get increased visibility while using less energy? With the optional HID Headlights on the 2015 Ford Focus2, the answer is yes.

A state-of-the-art premium sound system designed with audiophiles in mind - enjoy concert-quality sound standard on the 2015 Ford Focus3. Want it on the 2015 Nissan Sentra4? You'll have to pay extra. No more parallel parking jitters - the Rear Parking Aid, standard on the 2015 Ford Focus3, can help guide you into the perfect parking spot, signaling when you're getting too close to the curb, or other cars. Unless you enjoy the parallel parking jitters, in which case, choose the 2015 Nissan Sentra, and don't pay extra for the rear parking aid option.
