Honda and Ford compact sedans compared

You may not always think about things like power or performance when you are considering a four-door sedan, but these things are important. You want a car that will get you where you need to go, but you also want something that is fun, and that’s where the Civic EX-L edges out the Focus Titanium. Not only does it have 14 more horsepower, but it also beats the Focus in terms of torque with 162 pound-feet of torque compared to 146 pound-feet of torque for the Focus. Not only do you want a four-door sedan, but you want something that has interior room and cargo space. Once again, the Honda Civic EX-L comes out on top. With over 4 cubic-feet extra on the inside and nearly 2 cubic-feet of extra room in the trunk, you will have plenty of room for people and cargo. Then there’s the Variable Assisted Steering. This is a wonderful feature employed by Honda that allows your car to adjust its steering ratios based on your speed. This means you will have to turn the wheel less at low speeds and you will have a finer degree of control at high speeds. This is a feature that the Focus doesn’t provide. If you live in the Indianapolis are and you are interested in a Civic Sedan, then let the team at Indy Honda help you out. We have a wonderful inventory and a friendly staff that’s ready to get to work for you.
