VW Jetta vs Ford Focus: MPG Fuel Economy

2018 Volkswagen Jetta PerformanceIs efficiency among your greatest concerns? You'll like that these two cars achieve excellent fuel economy figures. The VW Jetta gets an EPA-estimated 30 city and 40 highway MPG, helping you go farther on less fuel.1 The Focus, meanwhile, can be just as efficient, with up to 30 city and 40 highway MPG as well.

Dig a bit deeper into those numbers, though, and you'll find the VW Jetta has some advantages. It achieves those incredible figures across all trim levels, so you have plenty of flexibility when it comes to choosing your next ride. The Focus only achieves those same heights on its SE trim, with the 1.0L EcoBoost® 3-cylinder engine.

Focus vs. Jetta Top-Tier Technology Features

The Volkswagen Jetta and Ford Focus share many of the same technology features. If you want access to your apps while you drive, these two cars offer Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ connectivity options. Just link your phone via USB port, and you can send texts, make calls, and more from the touchscreen!

Keep in mind, though, that while these features are standard in the VW Jetta, you'll need to choose higher Focus trim levels if you want the same options. The VW Jetta also offers a third option, MirrorLink®, which you won't find in the Ford car.

In the Cabin: Jetta vs. Focus Creature Comforts

2018 Volkswagen Jetta Interior SpaceSlide into the cabins of the VW Jetta and Ford Focus, and you'll find a range of available amenities, such as leather seats and heated front seats. The VW Jetta even offers optional cooled front seats, so you can stay comfy on those hot summer days.

The front seats are roomy enough to accommodate even the tallest adults. However, in the backseat, the VW Jetta takes the advantage. With 37.4 inches of legroom, it's suitable for most adults as well as children. The Focus has just 33.2 inches of rear legroom, which likely won't keep adults comfortable on longer rides.
