2016 Chevrolet Cruze vs. 2016 Dodge Dart Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Cruze offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Dodge Dart. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Cruze and the Dodge Dart in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Cruze as you will with the Dodge Dart, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Cruze will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Dodge Dart. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Cruze carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Dart.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Cruze is much slimmer than the Dodge Dart, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Cruze takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Dodge Dart.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Cruze transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Dodge Dart.

Performance
The Chevrolet Cruze has less horsepower than the Dodge Dart, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Cruze and the Dodge Dart.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Cruze comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Dodge Dart.
