    It’s 2018, and the automotive world is booming. New and thrilling cars that we never dreamed of having are being made and sold by the thousands, and out of all those cars, the 2018 Ford Focus and the 2018 Nissan Sentra are the most determined of their class.

    When comparing these two, it may seem hard to distinguish which is the better options overall, but the facts cannot lie, and only one reaches new limits in all aspects of presence, performance, and personality. The 2018 Ford Focus pulls through with a stronger looking exterior, a higher max horsepower, a more fuel efficient engine, and a more comprehensive list of trim options that grants its limitless character.

  • Personality

    2018 Ford Focus

    The 2018 Ford Focus stays true to its namesake and focuses its efforts on four strong sedan trim options.

    • The 2018 Ford Focus S Sedan model is the cheapest at $17,950 and even at that level offers a ton of personality. With a SYNC infotainment system, smart charging USB port, rearview cameras, and a 2.0L GDI engine you won’t even need to upgrade to get everything the average driver requires and then some. It may be the standard trim, but it is anything but basic for its class.
    • The 2018 Ford Focus SE Sedan model begins at $19,245 and takes everything about the S model and brings it up to a whole new level. This model offers SiriusXM satellite radio with over 150 channels and a 1.0L EcoBoost engine with auto start stop to offer an amazing 40 mpg highway. This would be what can be described as the eco-friendly trim.
    • The 2018 Ford Focus SEL Sedan model starts at $21,470 and gives everything the SEL can provide and offers some of the best features you can get in today’s market. The engine is the same as the Standard trim, but the upgraded SYNC 3 infotainment system with voice recognition will gift you with endless fun, while the power moonroof will bring light into your life. This can be considered the “a bit more” trim because it offers a bit more of everything.
    • Lastly, the 2018 Ford Focus Titanium Sedan is a bulletproof model that cost the most at $24,270 and offers all the top end luxury features. This trim level includes leather heated seats and wheel, push-button start, and plenty of another fun toys to make your day easy and fun. This is the luxury trim that everyone wishes they could have.

    If these four trims do not offer enough personality, then feel free to check out what the hatchback can do for you.

    2018 Nissan Sentra

    The 2018 Nissan Sentra offers nine trims, but in reality, it is only six if you exclude the Midnight editions of the S, SR, and SR Turbo trims levels which basically just trims everything in black to grow refinements and gift the 2018 Sentra with a darker personality. The trim levels for the 2018 Sentra going from cheapest to most expensive are S, SV, SR, SR Turbo, and SL ranging from $16.990 to $23,440. As for features, it follows the 2018 Ford Focus fairly closely with only a few discrepancies on what trims level they are attached to. Overall, the 2018 Nissan Sentra is fairly priced and offers plenty of options for you to choose from.

  • Performance

    2018 Ford Focus

    The 2018 Ford Focus comes with multiple engine options that can get you up to an impressive 350 of horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. This max output is extremely impressive for its class and runs faster and stronger than almost anything of its size when properly equipped. If you want to reach this max, the 2.0L EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine with auto start-stop technology will get you there. This isn’t the highlight of the 2018 Focus though, that would be its fuel economy. Invest in 1.0L EcoBoost 3-cylinder engine, and you will get an amazing 40 mpg highway, with 123 hp and 125 lb-ft of torque. The 2018 Ford Focus can be tough as nails or as eco-friendly as a bunny depending completely on your preferences.

    2018 Nissan Sentra

    The 2018 Nissan Sentra offers its own fair share of performance appeal. That being said, it does not reach the same high as the 2018 Focus in hp or fuel economy. At its best, the 2018 Sentra offers 188 hp and 37 mpg highway. It is still very well priced and balanced but just does not reach the same high or performance mobility with its two engines as the 2018 Ford Focus does with four engines.

  • Design

    2018 Ford Focus

    The 2018 Ford Focus comes in both a sedan and hatchback which allows for either a smoother or more robust style option. You can’t go wrong since both share the same stylish front design that contains a perfectly balanced slim grille and headlights that may be smooth, but easily stand out in a crowd for their stunning refinement. The color options are vivacious and fun and offer way more than just black, white, and gray. Overall, the best way to describe the presence of the 2018 Ford Focus would be like seeing a track star in a tux doing a comedy show; both are refined and sporty, and always determined to give you a lifetime of fun.

    2018 Nissan Sentra

    The 2018 Nissan Sentra highlights its Midnight style which features pretty much black everything but the exterior paint. If you invest in this style you will get black wheels trimming, black wall tries, black spoilers, and black mirror. It seems like a lot, but it does add some classiness to the otherwise fairly boring exterior of the 2018 Sentra by Nissan. Overall, the 2018 Sentra is nothing spectacular in style, but it not an inch of it stands out as particularly unappealing.
