2018 Ford Focus vs 2018 Honda Civic
If you regularly check our online inventory on our Akins Ford website, you’ll see that we routinely have over 125 new Ford Focus models to choose from. There are a few reasons why we keep so many new Ford Focus models on our Akins Ford lot near Atlanta, GA. For one thing, the new Ford Focus is always an incredibly popular model lineup and we want to make sure we have enough to cover the customer demand we see each and every new model year. We also keep that many new Focus models in stock because there are so many new Focus body styles and trim levels to choose from.
In fact, the 2018 Ford Focus lineup offers sedan and hatchback models that range from incredibly fuel efficient to incredibly powerful – and everything in between. There’s really only one other non-Ford new model lineup out there that can come close to matching that versatility, and that’s the 2018 Honda Civic lineup. So, let’s see how the two model lineups further compare to each other with this 2018 Ford Focus versus 2018 Honda Civic head-to-head model comparison.
