Not only does the 2016 Honda Civic have the Chevy Cruze beat on price, but with Honda features and reliability, the base model Civic is a better value too. Even with optional equipment, the Civic still comes out on top. Drivers shouldn’t have to pay through the nose for quality or integrity, and with Honda, you never will. A Honda Civic will deliver a bigger bang for your buck, and it looks a whole lot nicer than a Cruze.

The Honda engineers and designers must be real miracle makers. The 2016 Honda Civic pumps out 158 horsepower, a full 20 horsepower more than the inferior Cruze competitor. Even with that power difference, the Civic still manages 5 more miles per gallon in the city and 3 more out on the highway. If you are keeping score, this means the Civic will provide you with more power, more efficiency, and all at a lower price.

Honda likes to exceed expectations, and the 2016 Civic is a result of that. The Honda Civic offers important safety features, like a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines, as standard. Not only does the Civic have standard features that are expensive add-ons for the Cruze, but it also has standard features like automatic climate control and remote trunk/tailgate that aren’t even available on the Cruze.
