Compact cars remain a great choice for the drivers who’re seeking affordability. The 2018 Chevrolet Cruze’s strong fuel economy and sporty performance make it a top contender. You’ll also be drawn to the Cruze’s sleek exterior styling. While the sedan version will appeal to a lot of drivers, the Cruze Hatchback rewards you with an extra amount of cargo space. Like the 2018 Chevy Cruze, the 2018 Honda Civic is among one of the top-selling vehicles in the country. Let’s see which one of these compact cars wins this head-to-head battle.

Performance & Fuel Economy

Both of these cars offer responsive handling and precise steering. However, the Chevrolet Cruze’s surplus of torque under the hood ensures especially strong acceleration. While the Cruze’s base turbocharged four-cylinder engine develops a healthy 177 pound-feet of torque, its available diesel engine produces an even more formidable 240 pound-feet of torque. Less torque puts the Honda Civic at a distinct disadvantage against the Chevy Cruze. In fact, the Civic’s most powerful engine produces only 162 pound-feet of torque. You can also take advantage of the diesel-powered Cruze’s class-leading fuel economy. It can return up to 52 mpg, which overshadows the *Honda Civic’s highway rating of 42 mpg.


In terms of crash protection, these are two of the safest cars in the segment. You’ll have access to a number of advanced driving aids. Nevertheless, some of the Civic’s safety innovations don’t perform well during real-world driving situations. According to Edmunds, the Civic’s forward collision warning system tends to give false alarms. This will likely become a major source of frustration for some drivers. Meanwhile, Honda’s LaneWatch camera system has a tendency to distract your attention while on the road. Furthermore, only the Chevrolet Cruze comes with Teen Driver technology. Parents can use this safety feature to set speed limits and monitor their teen’s driving habits.


For good reason, the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze is considered to be a standout value. It comes loaded with an attractive list of standard equipment. The Cruze's standard MyLink infotainment system deserves praise for its quick response and easy-to-read graphics. The Civic’s interface is more confusing to use. Honda also fails to offer the Civic with a built-in Wi-Fi system. A standard 4G Wi-Fi hot spot enables the Cruze to provide a reliable connection to the web for you and your passengers. The OnStar communications system is another one of the Cruze’s great features. It can provide turn-by-turn driving directions and update you on your car’s health.

Exclusive features and an impressive engine lineup help the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze to edge out the 2018 Honda Civic. To experience the new Cruze for yourself, contact your local Chevy dealer to request a test drive.
