2016 Chevrolet Cruze vs. 2016 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Cruze offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Cruze.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Cruze, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Based on MSRP, the Chevrolet Cruze is clearly a better financial choice over the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. 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 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Cruze is much slimmer than the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Chevrolet Cruze is slightly shorter than the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, which may make it easier to park.

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

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Chevrolet Cruze and the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Cruze and the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. The Chevrolet Cruze has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Cruze is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid.
