2018 Volkswagen Jetta vs 2018 Ford Focus

Compact cars often fly under the radar, but are still one of the most popular builds on the road. Why is that? Well, although not powerful on the road or loaded up with a lot of cargo space, they are often very affordable and have stellar fuel economies in comparison to larger vehicles. For a more efficient summary, we'll say that with lighter frames and engines, compact cars cost less and can drive for longer.

No nonsense and few frills, compact cars are great for drivers who don't need extra. That's a good starting point to decide if compacts appeal to you. However, what else do you want out of a compact car as a driver? A great place to continue is by comparison. It's the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta vs the 2018 Ford Focus!
