Drivers near Winnipeg looking for a high-quality and well-equipped five-person sedan have many options to choose from, including top contenders like the Chevy Cruze and the Honda Civic. In this 2016 Chevy Cruze vs 2016 Honda Civic comparison, we are going to look at a few of the top advantages in these vehicles, and see which one rises to the top for an individual car shopper. The Chevy Cruze is available in L, LS, LT and Premier trim levels. The 2016 Honda Civic comes in LX, EX, EX-T, EX-L and Touring sedan models, with coupe options available later in the model year.
One of the first things you notice about these two sedans is engine options. The 2016 Chevy Cruze is available with only one 1.4-litre engine rated for 153 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. The 2016 Honda Civic has two. When it comes to power, the base Civic engine offers a very slight edge over the Cruze, and its more advanced engine offers a significant increase horsepower. However, the tables are turned when it comes to transforming that sheer power into acceleration with torque. The 2016 Chevy Cruze offers 15 more pound-feet of torque than the advanced Civic engine, and 39 more than the base engine, which can make a big difference getting swiftly up to highway speeds.
Engine efficiency on the 2016 Chevy Cruze
Price can be another significant comparison point when looking at the 2016 Chevy Cruze vs 2016 Honda Civic. These two models are fairly close in price, but time and again the Cruze offers a slightly lower MSRP. Another hidden savings advantage is fuel consumption. Again, the differences aren't massive, but the 2016 Chevy Cruze offers a highway fuel consumption of just 5.6 L/100km and a low city fuel consumption as well. The 2016 Honda Civic can't quite match the Cruze for fuel efficiency with the standard engine.
Both of these vehicles are well-equipped, even in base trims. Features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility are available in both sedans, though the 2016 Chevy Cruze is the only model with the ability to become a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot that can support up to seven devices. Small touches like double the number of standard power outlets and overall more cup holders in the Chevy Cruze may not make a huge difference, but they are the kind of features that add a nice touch of convenience.
