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 Yaris Sedan. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Cruze and the Toyota Yaris Sedan in the front seats.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Cruze will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota Yaris Sedan, 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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Toyota Yaris Sedan, 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. The Chevrolet Cruze carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Toyota Yaris Sedan.

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

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 Sedan.

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

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