Classic compact sedans are an ideal choice for drivers who want a practical, reliable ride with good fuel economy. These days, even the most budget-friendly cars are available with tons of modern bells and whistles, not to mention style to spare. Two great options in this category are the 2018 Hyundai Elantra and Ford Focus. Both cars are available in both sedan and hatchback versions. Here's what you need to know about how the 2018 versions of these vehicles compare with one another.


  • • 14.4 cubic feet of trunk space in the Elantra compared with 13.2 cubic feet for the Focus
  • • Expandable to more than 55 cubic feet in the Elantra and about 44 cubic feet in the Focus

With the Elantra, you'll get best-in-class cargo space whether you choose either the cargo or hatchback version. In addition to the upgraded technology and cargo space, the 2018 Elantra boasts an elegant interior with high-quality materials and outstanding road noise insulation. While the Focus is also roomy, the cabin is constructed from lower quality hard plastics. Both vehicles can comfortably accommodate tall adults with plenty of rear-seat headroom.


  • • Elantra is a Top Safety Pick+ of the Insurance Institute on Highway Safety
  • • Expansive driver assistance technology available

The Focus was not reviewed by the IIHS, while the Elantra received the agency's highest rating. While both vehicles offer automatic high beams, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, rear parking sensors, active park assist, and blind spot monitoring, the Elantra adds forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, lane keep and lane change assist, and adaptive cruise control.


  • • Industry-leading Hyundai powertrain warranty of 10 years or 100,000 miles
  • • Above-average J.D. Power and Associates reliability score for the Elantra
  • • 28 city/37 highway miles per gallon for the Elantra, 26/36 for the Focus

Compared with the extensive Hyundai warranty, the Focus has a five-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty. It has also received below-average reliability scores from J.D. Power and Associates. The Focus also has a higher starting price and higher overall price than the Elantra, making the Hyundai a great deal if you want a compact car that will last years. In addition to the fuel economy numbers listed above, both cars have a fuel-efficient version. The Elantra Eco gets 32/40 city/highway miles per gallon compared with 30/40 mpg for the three-cylinder version of the Focus.
