    Fuel Economy

    Both the 2015 Chevy Cruze and the Ford Focus have excellent fuel economy, but the Chevy Cruze’s fuel economy is simply better. So which vehicle saves you more money in gas? If you drive 20,000 miles per year, the Chevy Cruze saves you $114 annually! And if that difference does not impress, consider this: the 2015 Chevy Cruze gas tank capacity is 15.6 gallons–3.2 gallons more than the Ford Focus. This means that the Chevy Cruze keeps you on the road, enjoying your vehicle for longer without the hassle and time spent refilling your gas tank. In fact, if you drive a 2015 Ford Focus, you will have to make 12 more trips to the gas station annually than you would driving the Chevy Cruze ECO. Who has time to refill their gas tank those extra 12 times?

     

    Vehicle Safety Rating

    When it comes to choosing safety, both the 2015 Chevy Cruze and the Ford Focus offer exceptional features.  The Safety Measurements and Testing changed in 2015 giving us a more comprehensive view of how an impact or collision affects us physically during and after the impact.  In 2015 The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration awarded the 2015 Chevy Cruze an overall safety rating of 5 Stars and the 2015 Ford Focus with 4 Stars.  The new tests and measurements share more information such as neck injury risk, neck stress, and neck compression for the driver.  We know both the Cruze and the Focus receive the highest rating of 5 Stars for the Driver, however when reviewing the neck stress experienced during an impact the average driver will have 5% more in a Ford Focus vs. the Chevy Cruze.  In regards to the the neck compression measurements, if you were in an accident you could expect 9 lbs. more pressure of neck compression in a 2015 Ford Focus compared to a 2015 Chevy Cruze.   Considering the importance of a high crash-safety rating, both cars are a good choice.  The Chevy Cruze is a better choice when reviewing crash statistics and pressure measurements.  There is much more compelling data on the passenger safety in these same areas, please view the Vehicle Comparison and do a vehicle comparison under the new vehicles tab or contact one of our sales consultants for assistants to gather this information.   The Cruze has proven to protect the driver and occupants by diverting inertia away from the compartments that occupy passengers.  This analysis can lead one to believe that a stronger or better structure and safety system is provided with the Chevrolet Cruze than with the Ford Focus.

     

    Warranty Coverage

    As is typical for all Chevy and Ford cars, both the Cruze and the Focus feature a 3-year/36,000-mile Bumper-to-Bumper Limited warranties. But when it comes down to the PowerTrain Limited warranties, the Chevy Cruze goes that extra mile… 40,000 extra miles, in fact! That’s right, the Chevy Cruze’s 5-year/100,000-mile PowerTrain warranty is there for you for the long haul.

This impressive warranty coverage makes the 2015 Chevy Cruze the clear choice for ensured vehicle reliability and exemplifies Chevy’s dedication to you.
