More specifically, both lineups feature sedan and hatchback body style options, an impressive array of powerful and fuel efficient engine options, comfortable and roomy interiors, stylish exteriors, and a comprehensive suite of advanced new safety, technology, comfort and convenience features. All that’s left, then, is to decide which model you want to purchase here at Brandon Ford.
