2020 Honda Civic vs 2019 Chevy Cruze

2020 Honda Civic

Sedans like the Honda Civic and Chevy Cruze are popular vehicles for commuters around Marlton, Mt Laurel, and Cherry Hill. Not only are they agile and compact enough for city driving, they also get an exciting kick from the engine when they take to the highway.

The team at Burns Honda wanted to help you figure out which of these cars will fit your lifestyle best. We created this Civic vs. Cruze comparison. Give it a read and then contact us to schedule your test drive.

Honda Civic vs Chevy Cruze: Performance Specs

When you take to the streets in your sedan, you want something that’s going to give you a satisfying surge of energy. That’s something both the Civic and Cruze deliver with their available turbocharged engines.

We noticed that the turbocharged engine under the hood of the Civic delivers a bit more than the Cruze, however. You can see that from the table below:


2020 Honda Civic

2019 Chevy Cruze


1.5L turbo I-4

1.4L turbo I-4


174 horsepower

153 horsepower

In addition to delivering more horsepower with its turbocharged engine, the Civic also gets an EPA-estimated fuel efficiency of 32 MPG city and 42 MPG highway (EX and EX-L trim levels).* Compare this to an EPA-estimated 28 MPG city and 38 MPG highway for the gas-powered engine in the Cruze.

So, if you’re looking for an energetic gas-powered engine that maximizes on fuel efficiency, you may prefer the 2020 Honda Civic over the Chevy Cruze.

Smart Safety Technologies

Honda Civic Safety

Whether commuting to work or taking the kids to school, safety is a top concern for many drivers like you in our area. The great news is that the Civic and Cruze take it seriously, too, and even offer full suites of smart safety technologies that are designed to improve driver awareness.

Features you’ll get from both sedans include:

  • Blind spot monitoring and lane change assistance
  • Lane keeping
  • Automatic high beams

They also both have forward collision mitigation systems that can alert you to potential collisions up ahead. If necessary, they can hit the brakes automatically to try to avoid an oncoming impact.

One major difference, however, is that the Honda Civic makes all these features standard while the Chevy Cruze requires a trim level and package upgrade before this level of safety and awareness is available.

Interior Features: Civic vs Cruze

Honda Civic Interior

When you climb inside the cabins of the Honda Civic and Chevy Cruze, you’ll find plenty of interior comforts plus high-tech features. For example, both sedans make a 7-inch touchscreen display available. This is compatible with connectivity features like Bluetooth® wireless, Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto™.

Plus, each car features a roomy 2-row cabin with enough space for five passengers. Passengers may have a little more room to move around in the Civic, though, based on their dimensions:


Honda Civic

Chevy Cruze

Passenger volume

97.8 cubic feet

93.5 cubic feet

Trunk volume

15.1 cubic feet

14.8 cubic feet

Not only does the Civic have an additional 4.3 cubic feet of passenger space, it also lets you fit a bit more in the trunk than the Cruze does.
