2016 Chevrolet Cruze vs. 2016 Honda Civic Review

Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Chevrolet Cruze than in the Honda Civic, due to the Chevrolet Cruze's smaller rear head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic, the Chevrolet Cruze may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

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

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.

The Chevrolet Cruze is about the same width as the Honda Civic. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Cruze takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Honda Civic.

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

The Chevrolet Cruze has less horsepower than the Honda Civic, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

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 less cargo capacity than the Honda Civic, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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