2017 Honda Civic vs Chevy Cruze
When you’re cruising around the streets of Centennial, Aurora, and Denver, you need a car that lets you ride in style without breaking the bank. The best choice for that is a trusty sedan. These cars may seem basic to some, but there’s reason they’re so popular. In fact, their demand has led to sedans being the most competitive class of car on the market.
With all that competition, choosing the best sedan for you can be hard. The 2017 Honda Civic and the 2017 Chevy Cruze are two of the best options available right now, but only one can be right for you. Learn about the differences between the 2017 Honda Civic and the 2017 Chevy Cruze, and discover which sedan is best suited for your needs. Contact Mile High Honda with any questions you may have.
Civic vs Cruze: Performance
Both of these cars are incredibly fun to drive. However, if you’re looking for power, the 2017 Honda Civic is the way to go. The Honda Civic can advance to over 200 horsepower at the higher trim levels compared to just a 153 horsepower in the 2017 Chevy Cruze.
The Honda Civic exceeds expectations in terms of miles per gallon. As you increase the power of your engine, your fuel economy actually increases. At the base level, the Civic has an EPA-estimated 28 city MPG and an EPA-estimated 40 highway MPG ¹, but the Honda Civic’s powerful 4-cylinder 1.5-liter turbo engine gets an EPA-estimated 28 city MPG and an EPA-estimated 38 highway MPG² while the Chevrolet Cruze falls short.
Honda vs Chevy: Interior
Trunk space is often overlooked when people shop for sedans — only to become extremely important at some time in the future. With the 2017 Honda Civic, you don’t have to worry since it offers 15.1 cubic feet of cargo space. The Chevrolet Cruze falls short at 14.8 cubic feet.
If you’re tall, the need for a roomy interior is that much more important. For the sake of your knees, make sure you have enough legroom. The Honda Civic offers more than enough for those a bit taller than average with 42.3 inches in the front and 37.4 inches in the back. This beat’s in the interior of the Chevy Cruze at 36.1 inches.
With such a competitive market, technology is quickly becoming the most popular way to set sedans apart. Both the 2017 Honda Civic and the 2017 Chevy Cruze have plenty of included technological features like incredibly intuitive infotainment systems. No matter which you choose, you’ll be able to peruse your library of tracks, map routes with navigation apps, and more with ease.
In terms of safety, however, the 2017 Honda Civic reigns supreme. With the Honda Sensing Safety Suite, you can feel more protected than ever before. Driver assistance features go a long way to prevent accidents from occurring and the safety suite features a lot. The road-departure mitigation system in particular is useful for when you start to unexpectedly veer off the road, and it’s something the Cruze simply doesn’t offer.
