The Honda Civic is a powerful vehicle that offers a standard 2.0L inline 4-cylinder engine capable of producing 138 lb-ft of torque. With this model, you’ll be able to experience a lot of power inside a compact, lightweight sedan. Looking at the Chevrolet Cruze, we see a standard 1.4L turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine with 177 lb-ft of torque. As you can see, the Chevy Cruze offers a significant increase in torque, providing a much more energetic, responsive drive.
This difference is more noticeable when looking at the higher engine options in both vehicles. The Honda Civic offers a 1.5L turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine with 174 lb-ft of torque for a peppier drive. However, the Chevy Cruise offers a 1.6L ECOTEC® turbo diesel 4-cylinder engine with 240 lb-ft of torque. With this increased torque, this vehicle will feel fresh and energetic, allowing you to speed up quickly and with ease.
When it comes to a vehicle that’s centered around increasing daily comfort for your commutes, both sedans are great options. Both the 2018 Chevy Cruze and Honda Civic offer an available infotainment system that will allow drivers to connect their phones to their vehicles using Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. This gives drivers hands-free access to navigation and music streaming as well as calls and texts.
However, the Cruze also offers a 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspot that will make getting internet access inside this Chevy sedan easy. With this kind of connectivity, you’ll be able to access a wealth of entertainment options from inside the cabin, making it welcoming and comfortable for long car rides. You can also enjoy enhanced style inside the Chevy Cruze with available ambient lighting. This low-level colored lighting will enhance cabin visibility while also giving the vehicle personality and helping you engage with this fun, sporty sedan.
The Honda Civic doesn’t offer these features, leaving its interior to be somewhat less comfortable. Without a 4G mobile hotspot, drivers aren’t able to enjoy a cabin that’s fully integrated with their phone and the internet, and without ambient lighting, drivers won’t be able to enjoy the same kinds of style options that they can in the Chevy Cruze.
Drivers looking for a sedan that will help them enjoy their commutes will find great offerings with both the 2018 Chevy Cruze and Honda Civic. However, if you’re looking for a vehicle that will enhance your performance as well as your comfort, the Chevy Cruze has what you need.
At Baierl Chevrolet, we want to show drivers in the Wexford, Pittsburgh, and Cranberry Township areas what this sporty, energetic sedan has to offer. If you’re interested in checking out the Chevy Cruze, schedule a test drive with us online or over the phone today!
