The 2018 Ford Focus is surprisingly fuel efficient, getting an EPA estimated 302 MPGs in the city and 402 MPGs on the highway. After all, the average American drives more than 13,000 miles a year - here's to more driving, and less stopping for gas.3

Features

A match made in heaven: warm in one zone, cool in another, giving each occupant control over their own climatic comfort. On the 2018 Ford Focus6, multi-zone climate control comes standard... but not on the 2018 Toyota Corolla.

A state-of-the-art premium sound system designed with audiophiles in mind - enjoy concert-quality sound standard on the 2018 Ford Focus6. Want it on the 2018 Toyota Corolla? You'll have to pay extra.
No more parallel parking jitters - the Rear Parking Aid, standard on the 2018 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 2018 Toyota Corolla, and don't pay extra for the rear parking aid option.
