2016 Toyota Corolla vs 2016 Ford Focus
It has only been a couple years since Toyota completely redesigned its iconic Corolla model. When they redesigned it they updated a variety of things such as the interior, exterior styling, safety features and technology. Now, for the 2016 model year they have taken an already great car and refined it even more. The new 2016 Toyota Corolla continues to offer car shoppers excellent value, efficiency and reliability, which are all huge selling points. They have also added some all-new technology features to an already impressive feature-set.
The compact car segment has always been a booming segment here in America. Therefore, car shoppers have a wide-variety of models to choose from while searching for a new vehicle. One of the vehicles that competes directly against the Corolla for market share every year is Ford’s Focus model, which is equally as iconic as the Corolla. We wanted to figure out which of these two vehicles is better in the new model year. Therefore, we have decided to match up the new 2016 Toyota Corolla vs 2016 Ford Focus in order to try to answer that question.
2016 Toyota Corolla: Technology and Efficiency
When we matched up the specifications of the new 2016 Toyota Corolla against the 2016 Ford Focus, it was very obvious to us that the Corolla was the better vehicle. One of the ways that the new 2016 Toyota Corolla is superior is with its excellent assortment of standard and available technology. Toyota added to an already impressive feature set with new technology such as Siri Eyes Free, which has been added to the EnTune Audio Plus. Some of the other great technology features that come equipped on the Corolla are: Standard bluetooth, backup camera, voice recognition, steering wheel controls and a USB port. The Ford Focus also comes well equipped, however, we simply like the innovative features on the Corolla better.
Another way that the new 2016 Toyota Corolla is superior to the 2016 Ford Focus is with its overall value. When you choose the Corolla you get better fuel efficiency and a lower five year cost-to-own rating because of the legendary Toyota reliability. On the other hand, the Ford Focus sells for about the same price and does not match up to the fuel efficiency rating and overall reliability of the Corolla.
