The Honda Civic and Chevy Cruze are two of the hottest competitors in the compact car category. Both these highly rated cars are available in both sedan and hatchback models. If you’re shopping for a small car this year, here’s how the 2018 Civic and Cruze compare with one another.

Performance

The Honda Civic is available with several engine options, including performance-tuned models. You can choose between a 158-horsepower four-cylinder engine, a turbo-four that gets either 174 or 180 horses depending on trim, the 205-hp four-cylinder in the Si models, or the 306-hp version that comes in the Type R hatchback. With the Cruze, you have your choice of either a 153-hp turbo-four or a 137-hp turbo diesel engine.

Crash Test Scores

The 2018 Honda Civic has earned a perfect five-star crash test scores across the board from the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)*. The 2018 Cruze was only evaluated in two categories by the IIHS and received four out of five stars in the side crash and rollover categories from the NHTSA.

Cargo Space

While the trunk space offered in these two vehicles is comparable, you have much more usable space in the Civic. In the Cruze, the rear seats aren’t designed to fold flat and the high cargo hold can make it difficult to lift items into the trunk. Both vehicles have about 15 cubic feet in the sedan version and about 47 cubic feet if you opt for the hatchback body style.
