Comparison Review

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

Convenience
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.

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 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. In this case, the Chevrolet Cruze will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Honda Civic.

Dimensions
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.

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

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

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

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