2014 Chevrolet Cruze vs. 2014 Honda Civic Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Cruze offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Honda Civic. The Chevrolet Cruze will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Cruze will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Honda Civic, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Honda Civic. 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Honda Civic.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Cruze is much wider than the Honda Civic, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Cruze takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Honda Civic.

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

Handling
The Chevrolet Cruze has about the same turning radius as the Honda Civic, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Chevrolet Cruze has less horsepower than the Honda Civic, 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 Honda Civic. The Chevrolet Cruze has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Honda Civic.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Cruze comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Civic.
