17 Jul Honda Civic Vs Chevy Cruze: Where The Civic Wins
Though the 2015 Civic LX with CVT and the 2015 Chevrolet Cruze 1LT are comparable in body style and categorization, that is just about where the similarities cease. When doing a head-to-head comparison, the Civic is the clear winner- and here’s why.
When doing a quality and value analysis, the 2015 Honda Civic has a lower base price MSRP, a lower destination charge, and a considerably higher fuel economy in the city and on the highway; the Civic has a combined fuel economy of 33 mpg*, while the Cruze has a 30 mpg*. ALG even claims a higher residual value for the Civic than for the Cruze: after thirty-six months, the Civic retains fifty-three percent of its initial value while the Cruze retains only forty-three percent. Not only does this mean the 2015 Honda Civic costs less to buy and means less time at the pump, but it also means that if you decide to sell it (to get a newer Honda, of course!), you will get more for your trade-in than you would if you were trading in a Cruze.
As far as performance analysis goes, the Civic has a higher engine displacement- vroom, vroom!- and more horsepower. You ought to hear those pipes ring! Civic also has a tighter turning diameter than the Cruze, which makes those u-turns a breeze. And! The Civic has a standard rear stabilizer bar, which isn’t even an available option on the Cruze. A rearview camera is also standard on the 2015 Honda Civic, but this is not the case for the Cruze. The Honda Civic is dedicated to power, style, and safety in a way the Cruze just isn’t.
Other fun facts: the Civic has a lower curb weight and height than the Cruze, while maintaining more leg and shoulder room.
When deciding on a new sedan, the 2015 Civic should definitely be your first choice. Stop by Honda of Aventura and take a test drive today!
