Vehicle Comparisons:
2017 Chevy Cruze vs Honda Civic

It seems like compact sedans are more popular now than they ever were before. Almost every automaker has their own take on this type of vehicle, which can leave drivers confused about which model is best for them. If you’ve been considering investing in a new compact sedan, here’s a comparison of the 2017 Chevy Cruze and the 2017 Honda Civic. Take these contrasts into consideration when looking for your next vehicle in Lewistown, PA.

Design, Inside & Out

2017 Chevy Cruze vs Honda CivicThe 2017 Chevy Cruze is offered in both sedan and hatchback styles. You’ll find a sporty look for these vehicles, with black exterior trim and 18-inch wheels. While both options look sleek, the hatchback offers just over 47 cubic feet of cargo space, allowing you the maximum amount of storage. Beyond storage, you’re sure to love the seamless look the front dash has, with smooth and clean-cut lines.

While the Cruze has an athletic look to it, the 2017 Honda Civic has a more classic, simple style to it. The interior of the Civic also has a cohesive look to it, much like the Cruze, but the lines aren’t as smooth, making navigating the inside of the car a less comfortable experience. Honda also makes a hatchback version of the Civic, but the total number of cubic feet available is just short of what the Cruze offers.

Compare Technologies

The Cruze is packed with as many technologies as one could imagine. It comes with a 7-inch touchscreen, Chevrolet MyLink, and available 4G LTE Wi-Fi. If that wasn’t enough, this sporty little car includes both Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, which pairs well with the myChevrolet mobile app. With this app, you can start/stop your car and unlock/lock your doors, among other features. As you can see, there’s no shortage of capabilities for the Chevy Cruze.

2017 Chevy Cruze vs Honda CivicThe Civic also offers Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, along with HondaLink®, which is similar to Chevrolet MyLink. However, the 7-inch display isn’t available as a standard feature on the base model of the Civic. Chevy offers a 7-inch touchscreen display as a standard on even the most basic trim level of the Cruze.

New-Age Safety Features

Both the Chevy and the Civic aim to keep drivers and passengers as safe as possible on the road. Each has a rear vision camera and a navigation system of sorts. However, as mentioned earlier, the Cruze offers a bigger display for the base model, so these features may be more enjoyable with that larger screen.

Chevrolet also claims that the Cruze was the first car of its kind to have 10 airbags, so you can rest assured that your family will be protected in the event of a collision. The 2017 Chevrolet Cruze was also built with a high-strength safety cage made of steel, to add even more durability to your vehicle.
