Awards

Ford has made safety a top priority, and it shows: the 2017 Focus has earned a coveted 5-star Overall Safety rating from the NHTSA1.

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 Kia Forte3, those brilliant, energy-efficient HID headlights are a pricey add-on.
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 Kia Forte4, you'll have to pay extra for it.
Move forward, back, up, or down with the touch of a button, using the Power Adjustable Seats that come standard on the 2017 Ford Focus5. Power Adjustable Seats aren't standard on the 2017 Kia Forte4, so be prepared to either pay more, or use that awkward bar under the seat.
A state-of-the-art premium sound system designed with audiophiles in mind - enjoy concert-quality sound standard on the 2017 Ford Focus6. Want it on the 2017 Kia Forte? You'll have to pay extra.
No more parallel parking jitters - the Rear Parking Aid, standard on the 2017 Ford Focus6, 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 Kia Forte, and don't pay extra for the rear parking aid option.
The 2017 Ford Focus's6 standard sunroof lets the light in on even the gloomiest day. Sadly, the 2017 Kia Forte's4 sunroof will cost you extra.
