You might think that the Chevy Cruze is a good deal, but when you compare it to the Honda Civic, you’ll see that it doesn’t offer much in terms of value. The 2016 Honda Civic offers more features and superior specifications for the price when you compare it to the Cruze. See for yourself in this detailed comparison.
Base Trim Levels
While the Honda Civic does start at a slightly higher price than the base Chevy Cruze, you get a lot more for your money with the Civic. The Honda Civic LX with 6MT is priced at $18,640 MSRP,* and you get features like cruise control, a rearview camera, a remote trunk release, automatic climate control, and floor mats. The Chevy Cruze starts at $16,620 MSRP but doesn’t get any of those features.
The Honda Civic EX is priced at $21,040 MSRP,* while the Chevrolet Cruze LT with automatic transmission starts at $21,120 MSRP. The Civic also receives upgrades including a power moonroof, automatic climate control, and an illuminated vanity mirror, none of which comes in the Cruze LT.
The Honda Civic Touring offers considerably more upgrades when compared to the top-of-the-line Chevrolet Cruze Premier. Take a look at the highlights:
- The Civic Touring gets an upgraded 1.5L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 174 hp. The Cruze gets the same 1.4L 4-cylinder that makes only 153 hp.
- The Civic Touring gets a standard navigation system with real-time traffic and voice-activated commands. A navigation feature is optional in the Cruze Premier.
- The Civic Touring also adds features that are missing from the Cruze, including dual-zone automatic climate control, power moonroof, fog lights, adaptive cruise control, automatic collision prevention braking, and lane departure prevention.
