Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Cruze you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Honda Fit, 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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Honda Fit, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 Fit.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Cruze is much wider than the Honda Fit, 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 Honda Fit.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Cruze does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Honda Fit.

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Cruze and the Honda Fit. The Chevrolet Cruze has less cargo capacity than the Honda Fit, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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