In the midsize sedan category, the 2017 Honda Civic and 2017 Ford Focus are both popular choices. However, only one delivers better fuel economy and overall comfort for you and your passengers, as well as room for groceries and sports equipment in the trunk. Find out which model you’ll be using to navigate the streets of Elgin, IL in this guide from Brilliance Honda of Crystal Lake.

Discover Superior Comfort

A family sedan needs to be able to keep all your passengers satisfied for mile after mile. That way, when you’re on long road trips, everyone in the car is happy. Fortunately, one model offers more room to stretch out. The Honda Civic LX delivers more front headroom, legroom, and shoulder room, as well as more rear legroom and shoulder room than the Focus S. In addition, the Civic LX has a few more comfort minded features as well, including standard automatic climate control and cruise control.

If you’re planning to log long highway miles in your next family vehicle, the Civic base trim is simply better equipped. You’ll also want to keep fuel economy in mind. Let’s take a look at each base trim’s EPA estimates to see which model will save you money at the pump:

  • The 2017 Ford Focus S with a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive reaches 26 mpg city/38 mpg highway/31 mpg combined in EPA estimates.
  • The 2017 Honda Civic LX with a continuously variable transmission and front-wheel drive delivers a superior 31 mpg city/40 mpg highway/34 mpg combined*.
