What kind of gas mileage does the 2018 Ford Focus get?
As you probably know, gas mileage is measured in the city as well as on the highway. Traditional non-hybrid cars almost always get better gas mileage on the highway—that is a well-known statement. But why is that? Traditional engines perform better when the accelerator isn’t changing like it does in the city. On the highway, the speed is more or less constant. Hybrid cars actually more efficient in the city because their gasoline engine shut off when coasting or at a stop. Anyway, how far can you go in the new Focus? The 2018 Ford Focus averages 25 city MPG* and up to 34 highway MPG*.
