2017 Honda Civic Hatchback vs 2017 Chevy Cruze Hatchback
After the debut of the tenth-generation Civic Sedan and Coupe models, enthusiasts started to get restless waiting not just for the third model to be released, but just to figure out what it would be. After it was announced that it would be the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback, the anticipation only continued to build and build. Now, we’re happy to announced that it has finally arrived, and can’t wait to see you sitting behind the wheel. But first, we thought we’d see how it measures up to the similarly-anticipated new 2017 Chevy Cruze Hatchback model.
Advantages of the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback
As you can tell by looking at the table above, the two vehicles are quite comparable to one another, but the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback pulls ahead at least a little bit in every aspect that we analyzed. Let’s start at the top with power, which is pretty important in sporty vehicles like these. The Civic Hatchback offers 174 horsepower, which is 21 horses more than the Cruze Hatchback offers. 21 isn’t a huge number, but it would definitely be noticeable side by side. It should translate to a more enjoyable driving experience.
Generally, when delivering more power than a certain competitor, there’s a pretty good chance that it will give up at least a bit of fuel efficiency as more power often means it burns through more fuel. But not in this instance, as the Civic Hatch still utilizes less fuel than the Cruze Hatch. Utilizing 0.5 litres less fuel per 100 kilometres driven on city streets, and 0.3 l/100km less on the highway, the Civic Hatch will save you a bit of money at the pump each visit, and those savings could add up quite a bit over time.
Finally, the Civic also delivers more in the way of cargo capacity as well, which is arguably the most important aspect of a hatchback vehicle. Offering 7.2 cu. ft. of extra space in its cargo hold, the Civic Hatch will definitely let you transport much more of your stuff in a single trip.
