2018 Volkswagen Jetta vs 2018 Ford Focus

People looking to buy a vehicle are looking for something reliable, durable, and affordable. They also need a vehicle that suits their needs. While SUVs, trucks, and vans are popular vehicles, the most common choice of car type for consumers will be the sedan. Not needing the special features found on other types of vehicles, sedans are able to trim away the fat from larger cars. This allows them to come at cheaper costs and much better fuel economies with their lighter frames.

Being so popular, the automotive market is flooded with dozens upon dozens of different sedans. With so many options, how can you hope to find the best fit for you at a great deal? This year, we've seen the release of many 2018 models that are packed with the latest features and new technology. Let's start with two very reputable 2018 sedan models that are new to the market: the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta and the 2018 Ford Focus.

The competition between these two beloved sedans is very close, but our preference on a technical level crowns the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta as the winner. The 2018 Focus has a larger engine, but it only allows it a slight advantage in horsepower over the 2018 Jetta, and yet much less torque. Meanwhile, the 2018 Jetta's lightweight and carefully crafted design helps to channel its engine's power better, improving its fuel economy over the 2017 Jetta and trouncing the 2018 Focus by a fair bit. It's also worth your time to take a look at the convenience features that the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta brings to its new model, such as:

  • Halogen LED Headlights
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Heated Seats
  • V-Tex Leatherette Upholstery
  • Intelligent Crash Response System
  • And more!
