2018 Ford Focus Sedan vs 2018 Nissan Versa Sedan

2018 Ford Focus Sedan vs 2018 Nissan Versa Sedan

Here at Akins Ford near Atlanta, GA, we love creating these head-to-head model comparisons because they’re a great way for our customers to be able to see how our new Ford lineups compare to the new lineups of the competition. But, we do sometimes feel sorry for the competition, as our new Ford models routinely decimate any and all vehicles put in their path.

While that’s true for all of our new Ford models, it’s especially true for the 2018 Ford Focus lineup thanks to its varied engine and trim level lineups – which include sedan and hatchback body styles. With that in mind, we decided to throw the competition a bone in this comparison and shine the spotlight solely on the new Ford Focus Sedan lineup. So, without further ado, here’s our 2018 Ford Focus Sedan versus 2018 Nissan Versa Sedan head-to-head model comparison.

What Advantages Does the New Ford Focus Sedan Lineup Hold Over the New Nissan Versa Sedan Lineup?

The 2018 Ford Focus Sedan lineup boasts multiple advantages over the 2018 Nissan Versa Sedan lineup, but we’re going to focus on what’s under the hood for the purposes of this comparison. Because we’re only looking at the new Focus Sedan lineup, the 2018 Focus lineup’s most powerful engine isn’t in the picture, as it’s only found under the hood of the 2018 Ford Focus ST Hatchback. Even with that engine out of the way, however, the new Nissan Versa Sedan’s engine lineup can’t hold a candle to the new Ford Focus Sedan’s engine lineup.

One big reason for that is that there aren’t any engine options for the 2018 Versa Sedan lineup, as the same engine powers all new Versa Sedan trim levels. And that engine is nowhere near as powerful or fuel efficient as the 2018 Ford Focus Sedan’s standard engine or its available engine – all of which you can see in our comparison table.
