The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.3
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Ford Focus has great road manners and scorching high-performance editions, but it's compromised by a small back seat. The 2017 Chevy Cruze adds a hatch to the family that retains the same good ride and ample space, without being boomy or loud.
