2017 Volkswagen Jetta vs 2017 Ford Focus

For generations, compact sedans have represented an essential portion of the American automotive market. Their small yet athletic statures and cutting-edge technology have made them a prime choice for commuters, which in turn has led automakers to allocate more time and energy into developing vehicles that are both fun and safe to drive. In today's market segment, the two top sedans for consumers almost always include the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta and 2017 Ford Focus. Long regarded as industry icons, today we'll be tackling what these two bring to the table head-to-head.
