2016 Ford Focus vs. 2016 Dodge Dart Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Ford Focus than in the Dodge Dart, due to the Ford Focus's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Ford Focus and the Dodge Dart in the front seats.

Convenience
The Dodge Dart requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Ford Focus, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Focus will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Dodge Dart. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford Focus carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Dart.

Dimensions
The Ford Focus is about the same width as the Dodge Dart. The Ford Focus is slightly shorter than the Dodge Dart, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Ford Focus has much less torque than the Dodge Dart, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
The Ford Focus has less horsepower than the Dodge Dart, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Focus and the Dodge Dart.

Warranty
The Ford Focus comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Dodge Dart.
