The Search for a Better Compact Sedan: 2016 Dodge Dart vs. 2016 Ford Focus
When looking for your next compact sedan, take a look at the brand-new 2016 Dodge Dart. To break down and decipher the pros and cons between the Dart and the competition, David Stanley Dodge has put together a comparison of the 2016 Dodge Dart vs. 2016 Ford Focus near Tulsa, OK.
To start the comparison between these two renowned compact vehicles, we look under the hood to see what kind of performance you can expect from the Dart and Focus. With its 2.4L Tigershark® Multiair® 2 engine, the peppy Dart delivers 184 horsepower and 174 lbs.-ft. of torque. When you compare those numbers to the Focus’ 2.0L Ti-VCT engine, 160 horsepower and 146 lbs.-ft. of torque, and you’ll see that the Dart holds the advantage by giving you more power at your disposal. That extra power doesn’t mitigate fuel economy, however, as the 2016 Dart will also give you over 50 miles more on a single tank of gas1. You’ll appreciate the efficiency on family road trips down to Dallas, as well as the Dart’s cruise control with steering-wheel controls, as compared to the Focus, which doesn’t have the cruise control feature at all.
One of the biggest differences when looking at the 2016 Dodge Dart vs. 2016 Ford Focus near Tulsa, OK, is that the Dart is the most technologically-advanced car in its class2. The 2016 Dart has an integrated navigation system on its 8.4-inch touchscreen on the center stack. It responds to voice-commands, and its "Where Am I?" feature gives your exact location and nearby hospitals, police stations, and gas stations for your easiest convenience. Both the 7-inch customizable Driver Information Digital Cluster Display and the 8.4-inch touchscreen are class-exclusive2 for the 2016 Dart, so you know you’re getting the best technology. You better bring an atlas with you when you’re driving the 2016 Ford Focus because it doesn’t have an integrated navigation feature.
In its interior, the 2016 Dart continues to impress. For your tallest passengers, the Dart gives you more legroom than the Fusion for both front and rear passengers. You can settle in to the Dart’s cozy interior, as its seats are lined with leather ,compared to the cloth interior of the Focus. To keep an optimal temperature, especially in those sweltering Oklahoma summers, the Dart offers automatic air condition and dual-zone temperature control for added flexibility. The Focus offers manual air conditioning, and only single-zone climate control. If you’re looking to experience the great outdoors, however, the Dart also has you covered. Open up the top with a power sunroof to let in some sunlight or to stare at the stars at night; the Focus doesn’t have its own sunroof, which isn’t quite the same view as staring straight into the sky.
That wraps up our analysis of the 2016 Dodge Dart vs. 2016 Ford Focus near Tulsa, OK. As you can see, the 2016 Dart is a great value and goes above and beyond your expectations for a compact sedan. It’s available today for a test drive at David Stanley Dodge, located at 7609 SE 29th St. in Midwest City, OK.
