Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The Chevrolet Cruze will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota Yaris, 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). The Chevrolet Cruze is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Yaris. 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 Yaris.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Cruze is much wider than the Toyota Yaris, 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 Toyota Yaris.

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 Yaris.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Cruze has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Yaris. 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 Toyota Yaris.

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