This is all available at your fingertips, or with voice recognition and blue tooth. Keep your hands on the wheel and drive without distractions while Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™ enhance your drive.

Additionally, the FordPass™ smartphone application makes life a little easier. Find parking, compare gas prices at different stations along your route and schedule service. Having it all in one place is a welcome convenience.

You won’t find these features in the Honda Civic.


  • WHEN PARALLEL PARKING Active park assist1 not only assists you in finding a parallel parking spot, it guides you into it while you control the accelerator, brake and gear shift knob, as needed.
  • CHANGING LANES BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert1,4 warns you if it detects a vehicle in either of your blind spots while driving forward, or approaching from the sides while in reverse.
  • BETWEEN THE LINES Drifting out of your lane? The Lane-Keeping System1 can help. By applying steering wheel torque, and even alerting you with gentle steering wheel vibration, it helps direct you to return to your lane.5
  • SAFETY CAGE CONSTRUCTION High-strength steel makes up over half of the 2018 Focus body structure.
  • SPACE (Side Protection and Cabin Enhancement) Architecture and the Trinity front-crash structure help divert crash forces away from occupants.
