Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Cruze offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Chevrolet Sonic. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Cruze and the Chevrolet Sonic in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Cruze you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Sonic, due to its larger tank size and better 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). The Chevrolet Cruze is somewhat more expensive than the Chevrolet Sonic. 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 Chevrolet Sonic have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Cruze is much wider than the Chevrolet Sonic, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Cruze, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Chevrolet Sonic.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Cruze is somewhat more powerful than the Chevrolet Sonic.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Cruze and the Chevrolet Sonic.

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