Engine Options

When you opt for the 2015 Focus, you can select one of three powertrains to meet your specific power and efficiency needs. The engines available on the Focus are as follows:

  • 2.0L Ti-VCT: This standard engine is capable of 160 hp as well as 27 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway when paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. It can also be paired with a five-speed manual.
  • 1.0L EcoBoost: If you’re interested in efficiency, you won’t be disappointed with the 1.0L EcoBoost, which offers 30 mpg in the city and an impressive 42 mpg on the highway when paired with a six-speed manual transmission.
  • 2.0L EcoBoost: For stunning power, Naperville drivers will love the 2.0L EcoBoost. It can generate 252 hp and an astounding 270 Ib-ft of torque.

The 2015 Honda Civic is only available with a 1.8L i-VTEC engine on every model. When coupled with the available continuously variable transmission, the Civic’s fuel economy is only 30 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway. These numbers are respectable, but are bested by Ford.
