Fuel Economy and Range

One feature that the Cruze offers is an engine start/stop system.  In heavy traffic or at stoplights, the Cruze Auto’s engine automatically turns off when the vehicle is stopped, saving fuel and reducing pollution. The engine is automatically restarted when the driver gets ready to move again.  The Civic doesn’t offer an automatic engine start/stop system.

Another two ways that the Cruze surpasses the Civic are the excellent gas mileage and fuel capacity it provides.  In comparison to the Civic, the Cruze’s gas mileage is 2 city and 1 highway mpg better than the Civic.  Not only this, but the Cruze’s standard fuel tank has 1.3 gallons more fuel capacity than the Focus (13.7 vs. 12.4 gallons). This seems miniscule, but both of these put together not only save you money, but save you from taking as many trips to the gas station.  Here at Chevy, we believe that you should be spending more time driving and enjoying your car than filling up gas and these two aspects of the Cruze will definitely help you keep to this standard.

 

Vehicle Safety Rating

For enhanced safety, the front shoulder belts of the Chevrolet Cruze are height-adjustable, and the rear seat shoulder belts have child comfort guides to move the belt to properly fit children. A better fit can prevent injuries and the increased comfort also encourages children to buckle up. The Honda Civic has only front height-adjustable seat belts.

To help make backing safer, the Cruze’s optional cross-path warning system uses wide-angle radar in the rear bumper to alert the driver to vehicles approaching from the side, helping the driver avoid collisions. The Civic doesn’t offer a cross-path warning system.

Both the Cruze and the Civic have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, front wheel drive, height adjustable front shoulder belts, plastic fuel tanks, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, available collision warning systems, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems and rear parking sensors.

 

Warranty Coverage

It may seem like the Cruze and the Civic have similar warranty coverage because their Bumper-to-Bumper and PowerTrain warranties are the same, however, there are two ways that Chevy’s warranty coverage surpasses Honda. First, the Cruze’s corrosion warranty is 1 year longer than the Civic’ (6 vs. 5 years). Furthermore, Chevy pays for scheduled maintenance on the Cruze for 2 years and 24,000 miles. That means Chevy will pay for oil changes, lubrication and any other required maintenance. Honda doesn’t pay scheduled maintenance for the Civic.

 

Summary

Compared to the Honda Civic, the Chevy Cruze is simply the better choice. With its better fuel economy and larger gas tank along with its exceptional warranty coverage, Chevy built its 2016 Cruze with you and your budget in mind.
