2012 Chevrolet Cruze vs. 2012 Ford Focus

2012 Chevrolet CruzeThe 2012 Chevrolet Cruze is a top contender in its class and a smart, efficient car that Elgin drivers prefer. With thoughtful warranty components and smart standard features, Biggers Chevrolet in Elgin is proud to present this thoughtfully designed vehicle at our Elgin showroom. When compared to other rivals, this 4-door stands out, especially when examining most recent Cruze 1LT against the 2012 Ford Focus SE. Here are some facts to think about.


Though certain terms are alike when considering the warranties for Chevy’s compact sedan and the new Focus, the Chevy shines in certain categories. For instance, the powertrain coverage for the Cruze rates at 100,000 miles, whereas the Focus has terms for 60,000 miles. There’s also a similar disparity when it comes to the roadside assistance package, with Chevy’s terms at 100,000 miles and the Ford at 60,000.

One other element to consider is that the compact Cruze1LT comes with a rust warranty of 3 years/36,000 miles. The Focus SE doesn’t even list rust coverage. Again, Chevrolet ensures its drivers have the most effective protection for their automotive investments.

Notable Features

Inside the new Cruze, drivers are treated to a range of features that enhance comfort and improve the driving experience. Items such as cruise control, Bluetooth, satellite radio, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and front reading lamps come standard with the Chevy vehicle. When it comes to the Ford car, these items are only available as upgrades.

The Chevy also offers passengers more cabin room. The Cruze has 94.6 cubic feet available verses the 90.7 inside the Focus. That 3.9 cubic feet difference can definitely make a difference, especially during longer excursions.

Outside, the Cruze sports components like daytime running lights, aluminum wheels, and all-season tires completely standard. For the Focus, only the aluminum wheels are available, and you’d have to pay extra!
