The 2013 Honda Civic vs. the 2013 Chevy Cruze

2013 Honda Civic Sedan

2013 Honda Civic Sedan

The 2013 Honda Civic sedan has earned plenty of praise from both drivers and critics, and we’re proud to offer it to our customers at Bosak Honda in Highland, IN. The new Civic offers a comfortable ride, strong fuel economy, and ample features. That said, there’s some stiff competition in the compact-sedan segment, and some Merrillville drivers may find themselves considering something like the 2013 Chevy Cruze — let’s take a look at how the two cars compare.

Fuel Economy Makes the Choice Clear

The 2013 Chevy Cruze is a good vehicle, but you certainly shouldn’t settle for that. We think that Honda’s compact sedan is ultimately the better choice for drivers in Merrillville and beyond, and here are just a few of the reasons why:

  • Nobody wants to suffer at the gas pump, and Honda is well aware of that. When equipped with a manual transmission, the 2013 Civic sedan LX is capable of achieving 28 mpg city/36 mpg highway/31 mpg combined,* while the 2013 Chevy Cruze falls short at 25 mpg city/36 mpg highway/29 mpg combined. On paper, this difference is small, but it will add up in a big way after filling up your tank several times.
  • Despite the superior fuel economy, the new Civic sedan also delivers more horsepower (140) and torque (128 lb-ft) than the new Cruze.
  • Some of the features that come standard on the 2013 Civic and are either optional or not available on the 2013 Cruze include cruise control, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, a rearview camera, and remote trunk release.
  • Want your passengers to be comfortable? Then you’ll want to go with the Civic sedan, which offers 36.2 cubic feet of rear legroom — that’s more than you’ll get with the Cruze.
