Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Cruze than the Toyota Corolla. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Corolla, the Chevrolet Cruze may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Cruze as you will with the Toyota Corolla, 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 Toyota Corolla. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Toyota Corolla.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Cruze is about the same width as the Toyota Corolla. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Cruze takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Corolla.

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 Toyota Corolla.

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

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

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