2016 Honda Civic vs 2016 Chevy Cruze Limited
When we set out to make this comparison, we wanted to compare the all-new Honda Civic to the all-new Chevy Cruze, the newest generation of General Motors’ popular compact sedan. But as we went to find information, we couldn’t find many specifications being released yet. So we shifted gears and decided to compare the 2016 Honda Civic vs 2016 Chevy Cruze Limited, which is a special edition last run of the vehicle’s first generation. Chevy’s sedan is stylish, but in doing our research we realize why it was important for them to update the vehicle, because its specifications are lackluster in comparison to the all-new Civic.
Advantages of the 2016 Honda Civic
Comparing the base model of the new 10th-generation Honda Civic to the Cruze Limited, we discovered that the Civic trumps the Cruze in all of our usual categories. Starting from the top, the Civic delivers 20 more horsepower, which is generally an area where Honda vehicles trail slightly. Upgrading the Civic to its new turbo engine would extend that advantage even more. But horsepower isn’t where the impressive advantages stop, as the Civic also utilizes a full litre less fuel per 100 kilometres driven on the highway. If you do a lot of highway driving, that’s going to save you quite a bit of money in the long run.
The next aspect we looked at is where the Cruze Limited comes the closest to matching the all-new Honda Civic, as it delivers 15.0 cubic feet of cargo space while the Civic offers 15.1 cu. ft. Technically that’s still a nod to the Civic, but that tenth of a cubic foot won’t make a huge difference. What will, however, is the extra 3.3 cu. ft. of passenger volume, giving you and your passengers quite a bit of extra space to stretch out and get comfortable in.
We’ll try to compare the 2016 Honda Civic against the all-new Chevy Cruze when its specifications are actually released, but for now the tenth-gen Civic definitely makes a better option than the Cruze Limited.
