Features

Is it possible to get increased visibility while using less energy? With the HID Headlights that come standard on the 2017 Ford Focus2, the answer is yes. On the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze, those brilliant, energy-efficient HID headlights are a pricey add-on.
A match made in heaven: warm in one zone, cool in another, giving each occupant control over their own climatic comfort. On the 2017 Ford Focus3, multi-zone climate control comes standard... but not on the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze.
Getting where you're going has never been easier, with turn-by-turn directions and other features of the 2017 Ford Focus's2 standard on-board navigation system. If you want the convenience and peace of mind of an on-board nav system in the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze4, you'll have to pay extra for it.
A state-of-the-art premium sound system designed with audiophiles in mind - enjoy concert-quality sound standard on the 2017 Ford Focus3. Want it on the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze5? You'll have to pay extra.
No more parallel parking jitters - the Rear Parking Aid, standard on the 2017 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 2017 Chevrolet Cruze5, and don't pay extra for the rear parking aid option.
The 2017 Ford Focus's3 standard sunroof lets the light in on even the gloomiest day. Sadly, the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze's5 sunroof will cost you extra.
