According to Consumer Reports, the Chevrolet Sonic has better reliability than the Ford Focus, though.

Interesting, when I was car shopping I couldn't get a Ford dealer to come close to the Sonic's price/value. I ended up getting a turbo Sonic with a 6 speed for about $2k less than a base Focus SE. Needless to say, I bought the Sonic and haven't looked back. The Focus is a nice car, and would have certainly given me more to think about if it was cheaper.

I traded in a 2013 Ford Focus after 6 months for a Chevrolet Sonic, and I am glad I did. If you drove a Focus and then drove a Sonic, and picked the Focus, I can not figure out why. The Focus ST handles well, the other models do not. The Sonic is the best handling Chevrolet under $45,000 and corners like a Honda Civic Si.

Well a Sonic and Focus are not even the same class. Not a good comparison. The Cruze/Focus and Sonic/Fiesta are better comparisons.
