Awards

The Ford has made safety a top priority, and it shows: the 2016 Focus has earned a coveted 5-star Overall Safety rating from the NHTSA1.
Why did KBB.com name the 2016 Ford Focus ST the Best Sporty Compact Car in its 5-Year Cost to Own Awards? Because it offers "good times without the financial guilt," and it's "an exciting car without breaking the bank." We couldn't agree more2.

Features

Is it possible to get increased visibility while using less energy? With the optional HID Headlights on the 2016 Ford Focus3, the answer is yes. On the 2016 Toyota Corolla, those brilliant, energy-efficient HID headlights aren't even available.
The refinement and luxury of leather seating is a standard feature in the 2016 Ford Focus4, but it's only available as an add-on option in the 2016 Toyota Corolla.
A match made in heaven: warm in one zone, cool in another, giving each occupant control over their own climatic comfort. On the 2016 Ford Focus4, multi-zone climate control comes standard... but not on the 2016 Toyota Corolla.
A state-of-the-art premium sound system designed with audiophiles in mind - enjoy concert-quality sound standard on the 2016 Ford Focus4. Want it on the 2016 Toyota Corolla? You'll have to pay extra.
No more parallel parking jitters - the Rear Parking Aid, standard on the 2016 Ford Focus5, 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 2016 Toyota Corolla, and don't pay extra for the rear parking aid option.
