The 2014 Chevy Cruze vs. the 2013 Honda Civic

2014 Chevrolet CruzeThe bold looking 2014 Chevrolet Cruze is a favorite pick in the compact class for Bradenton and Tampa drivers. Besides fantastic performance, it also offers a full list of modern features and all for an affordable price tag.

While the Honda Civic has long been a standard bearer in the compact class, critics across the board have praised the Cruze for shaking up the status quo. Why are many drivers choosing to go with the 2014 Cruze over the similarly priced 2013 Honda Civic? Let’s explore a few reasons.

A Great Alternative to the Civic

Let’s start with looks. While neither a full-sized sedan nor a sports car, the Cruze channels the spirit of both. A bold fascia and aggressive stance make the Cruze one of the best looking cars in its class. On the other hand, many critics on the other hand have panned the somewhat plain look of the 2013 Civic. When compared aesthetically to the Cruze, there just isn’t any contest.

Looks aren’t everything, though. The Cruze has a large list of benefits over the Civic backing it up. While the Civic is only available with one four-cylinder engine option, Cruze drivers can choose between a 1.8L four-cylinder option, a 1.4L fuel-efficient turbo option, or a mighty 2.0 diesel engine. The engine upgrades give drivers more torque power as well as comparable or greater fuel economy to that of the Civic.
