Today’s automobiles are more packed with amenities than ever before, going far beyond the standard when it comes to comforts, technologies, and safety equipment. Consequently, drivers expect more than ever before when looking to purchase a vehicle.
Consumers shopping for a new car may wonder how the 2016 Chevy Cruze’s standard features measure up against what the competition offers. Will drivers get everything they’re looking for onboard the Cruze, or does a rival vehicle like the 2016 Honda Civic Sedan offer more for the money?
Keep reading, and we’ll explore how these two nameplates stack up against each other in terms of standard amenities found onboard.
At the lowest-cost base-model level, both the Civic Sedan and the Cruze offer a healthy array of features, but there are several desirable amenities the Civic offers at the base model level that the Cruze does not.
For instance, the Civic Sedan base trim includes a standard rear stabilizer bar, while the Cruze does not offer a rear stabilizer bar at all. The base model Civic Sedan also features Hill Start Assist—an amenity not available in the Cruze base model.
Other features offered standard onboard the Civic Sedan but not available in the Cruze base trim include:
- Rearview camera
- Automatic climate control
- Cruise control
- Remote trunk release
- Floor mats
The Civic models also provide more powerful engine offerings than the Cruze.
The 2.0L DOHC 4-cylinder engine that is offered standard in the Civic LX and EX trims produces 158 hp, while the Cruze’s 1.4L 4-cylinder turbo engine generates only 153 hp.
The 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder standard engine under the hood of the Civic EX-T, EX-L, and Touring trims delivers 174 hp, in contrast with just 153 hp generated by the Cruze’s 1.4L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine.
