2015 Chevrolet Cruze vs. 2015 Toyota Corolla Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Corolla than the Chevrolet Cruze, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Corolla, the Chevrolet Cruze may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Cruze will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota Corolla, 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). The Chevrolet Cruze is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Corolla. 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 Corolla have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Cruze is a little wider than the Toyota Corolla, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Cruze takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Corolla.

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

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

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Chevrolet Cruze and the Toyota Corolla.

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