2017 Ford Focus vs. 2017 Ford Fusion

Both the Ford Focus and Ford Fusion are known for their sharp styling, dynamic performance, and refined cabins. However, there is a size difference between the two. The Ford Focus is a compact car, while the Ford Fusion is classified as a mid-sized sedan. The difference is evident when you look at the amount of space they offer passengers, as the passenger volume of the Focus is 90 cubic-feet (cu.-ft.), while the Fusion grants you a roomier 102.8 cu.-ft. If you simply need an efficient commuter car, the Focus might be a better option, while the Fusion might better serve a family.

Trim Levels
