Battle of the Sedans: 2015 Chevy Cruze vs. 2015 Honda Civic Sedan
The 2015 Chevy Cruze and Honda Civic Sedan are both at the top of the compact sedan segment. But which is the best car for you? We’ve compared the 2015 Cruze LS to the 2015 Honda Civic LX in order to find out which one offers drivers more. As it turns out, the Cruze surpasses the Civic in nearly every way. With its spacious interior and plentiful safety features, the Chevy Cruze’s package is just more generous than the Civic model’s. To top it off, Chevy’s original manufacturer warranty is leagues above Honda’s, which means you’ll save thousands in repairs should you ever have an accident in the years to come.
Both sedans offer standard safety features like 4-wheel ABS, Vehicle Anti-Theft System, Traction Control System, Tire Pressure Monitor, and Electronic Stability Control System, but the Chevy Cruze goes above and beyond expectations with its telematics capabilities. The base model Cruze features a free 6 month trial of OnStar, which doubles as a navigation system and an emergency assistance link. If you’re ever in an accident, the Cruze itself will call an ambulance and put you into contact with an emergency advisor.
An Unbeatable Warranty Package
Both the Cruze and Civic feature a three year or 36,000 mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty, but the Cruze’s powertrain and roadside assistance warranties are unbeatable. Chevrolet’s generous warranties allow you to keep your car in top condition well after it rolls out of the dealership.
- The Cruze’s 100,000-mile Powertrain/Drivetrain Limited Warranty exceeds the Civic’s by 60,000 miles.
- The Cruze includes a 100,000-mile or 5-year Roadside Assistance Program, lasting roughly twice as long as the 36,000-mile or 3-year Civic offering.
- Scheduled Maintenance is available with Chevrolet vehicles, but the Honda Civic does not offer it.
Though both vehicles are compact cars, the Cruze optimizes its design to give you roomier dimensions than the Civic. The Cruze is slightly wider and features a larger wheelbase that allows for a more spacious cabin. Its additional two inches of height provide ample headroom to accommodate taller drivers. The Cruze also features more legroom for the driver and additional hip room for backseat passengers, giving everyone the chance to stretch out on long drives.
A More Reasonable Price
The 2015 Cruze LS has an MSRP value of $18,870, which is $320 lower than the 2015 Civic LX’s starting price of $19,290. When you factor in the free 6 month OnStar trial, extended warranties, and scheduled maintenance, the difference is even greater. With all of those perks in mind, it makes no sense to pay extra for the inferior Honda Civic.
