2017 Ford Focus vs 2017 Nissan Versa

With the compact car segment exploding in popularity the way it is, you now have an influx of models to choose from. That’s good because, well, who doesn’t love variety when deciding on something as important as a new car? But it can also be a bother because now you have to take time to research those models to figure out which one is right for you.


You can also just skip all of that and choose the 2017 Ford Focus. The Ford Focus helped popularize the compact car segment and the new Focus is working to further revolutionize it with its powerful and efficient engine options, impressive spaciousness and comprehensive suite of advanced new safety, technology, comfort and convenience features. To see what we mean, let’s look at the 2017 Ford Focus versus the 2017 Nissan Versa in a head-to-head comparison.

2017 Ford Focus is the Perfect Combination of Power and Fuel Efficiency

Fuel Efficiency is a big draw for compact cars, and the 2017 Ford Focus and 2017 Nissan Versa are no different. In fact, both models get 36 miles per gallon on the highway. The new Versa does get one more mile per gallon in the city than the new Focus, but that’s not going to mean much in terms of saving on gas.


Where the 2017 Focus sets itself apart from the competition is in terms of power. The new Ford Focus can pump out 160 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque, while the 2017 Versa can only offer 109 horsepower and 107 pound-feet of torque.


When both models you’re looking at get about the same gas mileage, you have to turn your attention somewhere else. In this case, we looked at power and found the 2017 Nissan Versa to be lacking while the 2017 Ford Focus provides more than enough to get the job done.
