2014 Chevrolet Cruze vs. 2014 Toyota Camry Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Camry than the Chevrolet Cruze, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Cruze will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Camry.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Cruze as you will with the Toyota Camry, 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 Toyota Camry. 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 and the Toyota Camry have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Cruze is a little narrower than the Toyota Camry, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Chevrolet Cruze is slightly shorter than the Toyota Camry, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Chevrolet Cruze doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota Camry.

Handling
The Chevrolet Cruze has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Camry, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Cruze is significantly less powerful than the Toyota Camry. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Cruze and the Toyota Camry. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Chevrolet Cruze as you will in the Toyota Camry.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Cruze comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Camry.
