There are plenty of sporty small cars out on the market today from which Schaumburg and Elgin, IL area drivers may choose. The 2015 Honda Civic Si Coupe and the 2015 Ford Focus are two of them. Which one offers the better combination of performance and efficiency and comes out ahead? We’re here to find out!

Power

The 2015 Honda Civic Si Coupe packs more power with its 2.4L four-cylinder than the 2015 Ford Focus, as the Civic puts out 205 hp and 174 lb-ft of torque. The Focus only gets a 2.0L four-cylinder that makes 160 hp and 146 lb-ft of torque. That pretty much guarantees that the Civic Si will be much swifter.

Safety

Both the 2015 Honda Civic Si Coupe and the 2015 Ford Focus received the best possible ‘Good’ rating in the moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints/seats categories in IIHS testing, but the Civic did better in the small overlap front category.

Features

The 2015 Honda Civic Si Coupe comes standard with features like:

  • A moonroof
  • Fog lights
  • A leather wrapped steering wheel
  • A stereo antitheft system
  • A remote trunk release

You won’t find any of those as standard equipment on the 2015 Ford Focus.

The Civic Si also gets a rearview camera. This is essential equipment for convenient, easy, and safe parking and reversing. The Ford Focus does not come with this feature.

Residual Value

ALG claims that the 2015 Honda Civic Si Coupe will retain 60 percent of its value after 36 months and 44 percent of its value after 60 months. The same organization says that the 2015 Ford Focus will only retain 47 percent of its value after 60 months and 33 percent of its value after 33 months.

In all, you can see that the Civic Si should be more fun to drive, safer, and ultimately represent a better investment when compared to the Focus.
