Subaru Crosstrek Vs. Ford Focus Active
Just though I would do a quick comparison of these two cars. Since they will no doubt be compared by potential buyers when the new Focus comes out.
The Ford is sleeker and lower. More like an actual car.
While, I think, Subaru did a better job at turning the Impreza hatchback into an SUV.
I think things are really a matter of taste here.
Not so inside.
The Ford’s interior is no match for the Crosstrek.
Sure, the picture of the Subaru is a top of the line model with leather. Still, except for the seats, all Crosstrek models have a similar interior.
And it looks much nicer and more upscale than the poor Focus.
It really looks like a class above.
The Crosstrek starts at around $22 000. Including AWD.
The current Focus hatchback is only about $1500 less. And the 2019 might be more.
I really don’t think this will work at all for Ford. And I suspect this is just what they want.
They will be able to claim no one wants anything but SUVs and trucks…
And, as I mention before, this will be quite a disaster for them. (no one else is abandoning the car business) It will only end up helping the competition.
