Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Chevrolet Cruze than in the Honda Insight, 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 Insight in the front seats.

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 Insight, 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 Insight. 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 Insight.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Cruze is a little narrower than the Honda Insight, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Cruze takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Honda Insight.

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 Insight.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Cruze has a much more powerful engine than the Honda Insight. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

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

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