Are you shopping for a new small sedan in the Frankfort or Orland Park area? The Honda Civic Sedan and the Chevy Cruze are two excellent choices. So which one will you decide to drive home? They’re both efficient, high tech sedans which could be perfect for you and your family. There are, however, some key differences that you should learn about before making up your mind.

Performance and Efficiency

These two models both come with powerful and efficient four-cylinder engines. Take a look at how they compare below:

  • The Chevy Cruze: With a 1.4L four-cylinder engine, the Cruze generates 153 hp. It earns up to 28 mpg city/39 mpg highway/32 mpg combined with a manual transmission and front-wheel drive in EPA estimates.* With an automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, it reaches 29 mpg city/39 mpg highway/33 mpg combined in EPA estimates.*
  • The Honda Civic Sedan uses a 158 hp 2.0L four-cylinder engine in the base LX trim. It achieves up to 31 mpg city/40 mpg highway/34 mpg combined in EPA estimates in the LX trim when equipped with a continuously variable transmission and front-wheel drive.* Higher trim levels of the Civic Sedan feature a 1.5L turbocharged four-cylinder that cranks out 174 hp and earns up to 32 mpg city/42 mpg highway/36 mpg combined with a continuously variable transmission in EPA estimates.*

There’s no contest here: The Honda Civic is the clear winner when it comes to power and fuel economy.
