A relatively new contender to the compact class, the 2014 Chevy Cruze is an excellent vehicle if you’re looking for a car with speedy performance, impressive efficiency, and plenty of modern features. Of course, you may be inclined to go with a model that’s been around longer like the Honda Civic sedan. So, how do the two stack up? Let’s compare!
Many drivers choose to go with a smaller compact because it’s a little more efficient. The 2014 Civic sedan is certainly that and capable of a very impressive 28 mpg city and 39 mpg highway. If fuel economy is important to you, the Cruze has some more efficient options. Opting for the 2014 Cruze Eco gives you a rating of 28 mpg city and 42 mpg highway. Plus, new this year is the 2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel that can get up to 46 mpg highway! That’s better than even a lot of hybrids on the market.
Interior Space and Comfort
Even in a smaller car, you still want to be comfortable with room enough to bring some stuff with you. Comfort wise, you may again want to go with the Cruze. For front seat passengers there’s more head, hip, and legroom than the Civic. You'll find the same in the back. The Cruze also features premium cloth seats on the base trim while the Civic only gives you standard cloth seats. Overall, you and your passengers will likely enjoy riding in the Cruze more than the Civic.
What about cargo space? The 2014 Honda Civic’s trunk holds 12.5 cubic feet of space, which is a bit on the smaller side. On other hand, Chevy gives you 15 cubic feet for everything you could need.
