2015 Chevrolet Cruze vs. 2015 Honda Civic

Read This Before Buying a 2015 Chevy Cruze in Central Missouri…

The 2015 Chevy Cruze has managed to outperform some of its competition—like Dodge’s Dart—though it’s pretty far from the top of its class. Mid-Missouri drivers seeking a new compact car might still be drawn to it thanks to amenities like the Chevy MyLink infotainment system or available rearview camera, but the entry-level Cruze LS is about as simple as they come in the small sedan class. The only feature on the Cruze LS that could be thought of as modern is its Bluetooth phone connectivity, while other amenities are limited to air conditioning and power accessories. When it comes to fuel economy, the Cruze doesn’t do too bad with its 138-hp four-cylinder engine with 35 highway and 22 city mpg.

If you’re looking for a car that’s better-equipped and more efficient, you only need look as far as a Mid-Missouri Honda Dealer for the 2015 Honda Civic. The Civic LX Sedan (with CVT) has earned an EPA-estimated 39 mpg on the highway and 30 mpg in the city* and taken home a 2015 Kelley Blue Book KBB.com Small Car Best Buy Award.* Though it’s remarkable all around, we think the most noteworthy features of the Civic are its standard amenities that are giving new meaning to “standard features”: a Honda-exclusive i-MID touchscreen infotainment system, SMS texting, Pandora radio, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio, a rearview camera, and more. Chevy makes many comparable amenities available on the Cruze, but you’d need to upgrade it to put it on par with the basic Civic LX.

See how the definitions of “standard features” vary between the Cruze and the Civic, then take a test drive of a 2015 Honda Civic at a Mid-Missouri Honda Dealer to see it firsthand.
