CRUZE VS CIVIC: PERFORMANCE

As competitively capable cars, the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze and the 2018 Honda Civic have a lot in common under the front hood. Both are standardly powered by a 4-cylinder engine, 6-speed manual transmission, and front-wheel drivetrain.

However, the mechanics between these two vehicles begin to differ when it comes to the Cruze's available 1.6-L turbo-diesel engine. This engine specializes in both power and efficiency with a power output of 240 lb-ft of torque and up to a whopping EPA-estimated 52 highway MPG1.

No matter what equipment you choose for the Civic, you won't get results like this. The Civic maxes out at 162 lb-ft of torque and an EPA-estimated 42 highway MPG2.

 

CRUZE VS CIVIC: ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY

To go along with its mechanical capabilities, the Chevrolet Cruze is equipped with several smart technology features starting with a standard 7-inch diagonal color touchscreen infotainment system.

This system offers a variety of perks including standard SiriusXM® satellite radio and available smartphone integration through Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. You can even opt for available 4G LTE Wi-Fi® from OnStar. Connect to this mobile hotspot for unlimited streaming and web surfing no matter where you're going.

As for the Honda Civic, you'll have a standard infotainment center. However, you'll only have a 5-inch screen that isn't a touchscreen. You also won't be able to enjoy 4G LTE Wi-Fi®.

 

CRUZE VS CIVIC: SAFETY FEATURES

They always say safety first. The 2018 Cruze and the 2018 Civic go above and beyond to honor this with features like standard rear-view cameras and available Forward Collision Warning and Lane Departure Warning.

The two latter features use advanced technology to monitor your vehicle's surroundings. Forward Collision Warning will let you know if there is a potential oncoming collision in front of you while Lane Departure Warning gives you a heads up when you begin to drift from your lane.

One feature you'll miss out on in the Civic, though, is the standard OnStar® Automatic Crash Response System. This smart feature has your back if you're involved in a crash. It will automatically alert authorities and help will be on the way in a matter of minutes.
