Deciding which new sedan or hatchback to purchase can be a monumental task for some, which is why it’s especially nice when you can find an automotive lineup that literally has something for everyone. The perfect example of such a lineup is the 2018 Ford Focus lineup, which we have right here at Akins Ford near Atlanta, GA.

That’s because the new Ford Focus lineup has a long list of diverse and distinct body styles, trim levels and engine options to choose from. There are so many, in fact, that the new Focus lineup stands above any other sedan or hatchback lineup that is put next to it – no matter which automotive competitor that sedan or hatchback comes from. The same holds true here, as we compare the 2018 Ford Focus versus the 2018 Nissan Sentra.
