Both the 2015 Honda Civic Sedan and the 2015 Chevy Cruz have been winning over drivers here in the Elgin and Schaumburg, IL area for a while. Each class-leading compact sedan offers thrifty fuel economy, upscale features, and smart design.  Which one will be better for you? Let’s take a closer look to find out!

Performance and Efficiency

We’re willing to bet that most compact sedan shopper put fuel economy near the top of the priorities list. When it comes to fuel economy, you’ll find more of it with the 2015 Honda Civic Sedan. With the Civic base model with the 1.8L four-cylinder and continuously variable transmission you can expect up to 30 mpg city/39 mpg highway based on EPA estimates*. The 2015 Chevy Cruze is only rated at 22 mpg city/35 mpg highway in the base trim. Plus, the Civic makes more power at 143 hp compared to 138 hp in the base  Cruze.

You can see that the Honda Civic is obviously a superior choice when it comes to powertrain performance.


When it comes to safety the 2015 Honda Civic Sedan also comes out ahead, receiving better ratings than the 2015 Chevy Cruze from the IIHS. The Chevy Cruze only received a Marginal rating in the new Small Front Overlap Crash Test while the Honda Civic earned a Good rating. A front crash prevention system is also available with the Honda Civic, but not the Chevy Cruze. Once again, it’s easy to see why you would pick the Honda over the  Chevy.

Features and Amenities.

The 2015 Honda Civic Sedan comes with a number of features that are simply not available or not standard in the 2015 Chevy Cruze. The Civic gets standard features like cruise control, a rearview camera, and a remote trunk release. None of those features are standard on the base Cruze.
