Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Chevrolet Cruze than in the Honda Civic, due to the Chevrolet Cruze's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Cruze and the Honda Civic in the front seats.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Cruze will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Honda Civic, 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). Whether you pick the Chevrolet Cruze or the Honda Civic, it's going to cost you about the same. 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.

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