Focus or Fiesta?

Which is better? More fuel efficient? Comfortable? Overall priced?

in my opinion, I like the 2014 fiesta st most. it costs less than the focus, but has less space and a smaller engine. both sport ecoboost engines, just 1.8 and 2.0 liters, respectively. both engines get great mileage, and both have plenty of power for the size of the car. as for the other trim packages, the fiesta gets better mileage too, but due to smaller size and engine. i would assume the focus to be the more comfortable of the two, but all that takes to decide is to walk in to the dealership and sit in both. the term "better" is all up to you, depending on what you want. if you want an inexpensive small gas friendly car, get the fiesta with the 1.6 3 liter ecoboost. if you need more space, get the focus.

Fiesta is more efficient and cheaper, but Focus is more comfortable. If you fit though, it would be cozier. Both are great cars, though, top of their respective classes.

The Fiesta will be less expensive, but the Focus is right there as far as MPGs are concerned. The Focus has more comfortable seats, IMO.

Which is better is strictly up to you. For me, I was going to get a Fiesta because it was cheaper, but I went with a Focus because it was better (for me). Whenever I pass or park next to a Fiesta, I know I made the right choice (for me).

Couple errors in your engine displacements for the Fiesta
Fiesta ST 1.6L EcoBoost not 1.8
And the 3 liter is 1.0L EcoBoost, not 1.6

Better: Really subjective and dependent on your priorities. Fuel Efficient: Fiesta. Comfortable: Focus. Overall priced: Both are a great value, but the Fiesta will naturally always cost less when comparably equipped.

The Fiesta does not necessarily always cost less similarly equipped though.
