2012 Chevrolet Cruze LT vs. 2012 Toyota Corolla LE
The 2012 Chevrolet Cruze is a hit in Elgin and the surrounding communities, and those who are looking for their next vehicle are certainly taking notice. We’re proud to offer this vehicle at Biggers Chevrolet, along with the rest of Chevy’s superb lineup of new and pre-owned cars, trucks, and SUVs. The new Cruze has drawn a great deal of praise for its comfortable interior, great fuel economy, and exceptional safety scores, among other things. To truly illustrate its greatness, let’s compare it to one of its top rivals: the 2012 Toyota Corolla.
The Cruze is at the Head of Its Class
While we’ll freely acknowledge that the 2012 Toyota Corolla is a very good car, we’re not alone when we say that Chevy’s small sedan is the better choice. Here are just a few reasons why Elgin drivers should choose the 2012 Chevrolet Cruze over its rival:
- It starts with the engine. The Cruze comes equipped with a turbocharged 1.4L four-cylinder that produces 138 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque ? more power than you’ll get from the Corolla’s 1.8L four-cylinder, which will give you 132 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque.
- If you’re thinking that the extra power comes at the expense of fuel-efficiency, you’re wrong. The new Chevy Cruze can achieve 26 mpg city/38 mpg highway, while the new Toyota Corolla again falls behind at 26 mpg city/34 mpg highway. Considered alongside the fact that Chevy’s car has a 15.6-gallon fuel tank and the fuel tank in Toyota’s car is 13.2 gallons, and it’s clear which car will take you farther.
- Chevrolet gives you peace of mind by way of a 5-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty (compared to 5 years/60,000 miles) and 5 years/100,000 miles of roadside assistance coverage (compared to 2 years/25,000 miles). It should be clear which automaker has more confidence in their product.
