2016 Hyundai Elantra vs. 2016 Ford Focus

Sedans are some of the most popular car types in the world today. One that has sold in the millions is the Ford Focus. Most people like it and the hatchback equivalent on account of its dependability and reliability. However, this is no longer your only option any more. The 2016 Hyundai Elantra is a sedan designed to offer a lot more than dependability and reliability, and is clearly the better bargain when compared to the Ford Focus. These are some of the reasons why.

Design & Style

The 2016 Ford Focus exterior design took a dramatic shift from the past, opting to use a front end reminiscent of an Aston Martin. Unfortunately, this is where the similarities between the two cars ends, since the rest of the Ford’s exterior can only be described as monotonous. The interior, however, is more appealing, with the careful use of different materials and trim to create a comfortable environment. The Ford Focus also has more than enough room for both front and rear passengers.

On the other hand, the 2016 Hyundai Elantra has an exterior design that definitely turns heads. This is on account of the use of bulges and curves to give it a soft, rounded shape. It also has a well-balanced silhouette which gives it extra appeal. As one would expect, extra attention has been paid in designing and putting together the Hyundai’s interior. As a result, it feels roomy and the driver will find it particularly ergonomic. There is no excess of buttons and switches, and those that are present are exactly where you would expect them to be.

Technology & Safety

There’s a lot to be said about the technological and safety features for both cars. However, some of the headlines for the 2016 Ford Focus include a backup camera, parking sensors, side and rear mounted airbags, antilock brakes and traction control systems available in the basic version of the car. Amenities such as heated seats and automatic climate control are only available as extra options.

The 2016 Hyundai Elantra has an incredible number of technological and safety features. A few of these include a backup camera with wide angle lenses and guide lines, heated seats, multi-zone auto climate control, traction control, antilock brakes, lane departure warning systems and many more.


The 2016 Ford Focus is a front-wheel-drive vehicle which has a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine generating 160 horsepower at 6500rpm.

The 2016 Hyundai Elantra has a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine which generates 145 horsepower, mated to a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission depending on your choice. More powerful engine options are also available. This means that you can pick a vehicle that suits your driving style without having to pay more. The Hyundai is very responsive, and is generally a fun car to drive.

The Bottom Line

While the Ford Focus has been a favorite for many people for many years, it does not stand a chance next to the 2016 Hyundai Elantra. Both cars are well made, but the Hyundai Elantra has a lot more to offer, and is therefore a better driver’s car. Its utilitarian nature means that you can use it as an everyday car and you will never regret doing it.
