The 2016 Honda Civic and the 2016 Chevy Cruze Limited are at the top of the crowded compact class. Both of these cars provide lots of high tech features, plenty of fuel economy, and fun to drive performance. While either one might meet your minimum requirements, you should read on to find out more about how these vehicles match up before you make any decisions.

Price and Value

You probably don’t always buy the cheapest product by default. That wouldn’t necessarily be smart. You want to make sure you’re getting the best value. The 2016 Cruze Limited starts at only $16,120 MSRP. The 2016 Honda Civic starts at $18,640 MSRP. $2,000 is a considerable difference in cars in this class. Read on to find out if the Civic justifies its higher price tag, or if the Cruze ends up the better value.

Performance and Efficiency

If you’re shopping this class, you probably put a higher premium on fuel economy than muscle. Both the Honda Civic and the Chevy Cruze can achieve pretty astronomical fuel economy estimates. Both of these models are able to achieve up to 42 mpg highway, depending on configuration.  The Cruze also has a larger fuel tank at up to 15.6 gallons, compared to 12.4 gallons in the Civic.

Comfort and Convenience

One major advantage that the Cruze offers is the OnStar telematics system with features like automatic collision notification and enhanced roadside assistance, and the 4G LTE connection and in-car WiFi hotspot. You won’t find any of those features on the Civic’s options list. The Cruze also offers a long roadside assistance program of 60,000-miles/5-years, compared to the 36,000-mile/3-year roadside assistance warranty on the Civic.
