2016 Honda Accord vs. 2016 Ford Focus
Whether you’re leisurely cruising along the open road, darting between the swooping curves of the winding highway, or confidently navigating the stop-and-go congestion of the big city, the 2016 Honda Accord is a mid-size sedan built to hold its own against its competition in Raynham and Plymouth. We’ve compared the 2016 Accord to a close rival, the 2016 Ford Focus, to let you decide which car better fits your daily drive. We think the results speak for themselves.
The 2016 Honda Accord and the 2016 Ford Focus both deliver power to spare, but which one give you that extra ‘oompf’ where it matters most?
2016 Honda Accord: The 2016 Accord’s trims come with three available powertrains, each more formidable than the last. The LX, EX, and EX-L are equipped with 2.4L inline-four that generates an balance estimate of 185 hp and 181 lb.-ft. of torque, while the Accord’s Sport trim comes with added dual exhausts that exert an impressive 189 hp and 182 lb.-ft. of torque. The top engine choice of the 2016 Accord is a 3.5L V6 that produces 278 hp and 252 lb.-ft. of torque to the EX-L and Touring trims.
2016 Ford Focus: The 2016 Focus comes in seven available powertrains, including the Focus’ electric engine variant, three of which are variants of the base 2.0L I-4 equipped to the Focus’ S Sedan, SE Sedan, and Titanium Sedan that generates an average of up to 160 hp and 146 lb.-ft. of torque. This means that if Focus drivers want to match the Accord’s base offering, they’ll have to pay extra to upgrade.
Looks aren’t everything, but when you’re searching and shopping for the very best that the latest line of mid-sized vehicles have to offer, it pays to know how to make a great first impression:
2016 Honda Accord: Gorgeous front-styling topped off with an intimidating front grille and powerful new LED fog lights built for low-visibility situations, the 2016 Accord is equal parts fashionable and functional. Integrated parking sensors help you navigate in and out of the most precarious parking situations, while rain-sensing window wipers automatically react and adjust their rate in relation to your current speed and acceleration.
2016 Ford Focus: The 2016 Focus is certainly sporty with its dynamic accents, sharp detailing, wavy curves, and form-fitting grille topped with dragon-eye headlamps, but it doesn’t have the cutting-edge tech features like rain-sensing window wipers or integrated parking sensors to supplement its looks.
As the saying goes, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. The 2016 Honda Accord and the 2016 Ford Focus both have plenty to offer drivers, though the Accord brings a little more to the table:
2016 Honda Accord: A standard push-button ignition system simplifies and gets you where you want to go quicker, while available leather-surface trimming ensures that you can steer the road ahead in total comfort. The 2016 Accord’s comprehensive dashboard hub is equipped with comprehensive features such as BlueTooth Connectivity, Pandora streaming, as well as Android Auto-syncing and Apple Carplay that pulls from your entire mobile phone music library and makes it accessible through the Accord’s high-definition 7-Inch Display.
2016 Ford Focus: The 2016 Focus looks comfortable, but with its quaint 33.2 inch leg room and 52.6 inch shoulder room compared to the Accord’s respective 42.5 inch and 56.5 inch interior specs, it’s hard not to find it wanting in the area of size. Features are less abundant as well, with the most being an “available” SYNC 3 navigation and entertainment system and a smart charging USB hub. Certainly nothing to scoff at, though not up to par with the 2016 Accord’s stunning array of entertainment specs.
