2018 Ford Focus vs 2018 Chevy Cruze
The 2018 Ford Focus lineup, which we have right here at Brandon Ford in Tampa, FL, is one of the most versatile lineups available today. That’s because it’s base sedan and hatchback models perfectly combine capability with fuel efficiency, while the 2018 Ford Focus ST ups the power output to give you the ride of your life and the 2018 Ford Focus Electric offers you a great way to save a ton of money at the pump.
That’s not to say there aren’t other versatile automotive lineups out there – they just aren’t as versatile, as impressive, as powerful or as capable as the new Ford Focus lineup. Take the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze lineup, for instance. It also offers both sedan and hatchback models, and even features an available diesel engine option. So, it’s got some versatility, but it still gets outperformed, outmatched and outclassed by the 2018 Focus lineup. To see what we mean, check out this 2018 Ford Focus vs 2018 Chevy Cruze head-to-head model lineup comparison.
