If you are like most compact car drivers, you do your fair share of city driving, and fuel efficiency is a top priority when shopping for your next car. Well, the all-new Civic does not disappoint in that regard, with its impressive city fuel economy rating of 31 mpg. The Civic's smooth and highly efficient continuously variable transmission (CVT) helps the Civic top the Cruze in city fuel efficiency. While the Cruze is not far behind, its automatic transmission is not as efficient around town as the Civic's CVT. Of course, if you would prefer your Civic with a traditional manual gearbox, you can have that. The 6-speed manual transmission provides for a thrilling driving experience, while returning fuel economy numbers in line with the silky smooth CVT. In fact, no matter which powertrain you select from the Civic's range, you will get a highly fuel-efficient vehicle.
Not only does the 2016 Honda Civic offer better city fuel economy than the Cruze, but it is also more powerful. The potent 2.0-liter engine lurking beneath the hood of the all-new Civic develops 158 horses and 138 lb-ft of torque. The Cruze is equipped with a significantly smaller engine, so its lack of power relative to the Civic shouldn't be too surprising. The Civic is the clear choice here if you want the power and performance for passing and merging in traffic. For even more power in the Civic lineup, choose the Civic EX-T model or above, as they feature a 1.5-liter, turbocharged engine for robust performance. Rated at 174 horses and 162 lb.-ft. of torque, you will certainly feel the power of the 1.5-liter kicking in every time you step on the throttle!
As the 2016 Civic sedan is a Honda, you can expect that it will come standard with an impressive list of features. For instance, the base Civic LX includes such standard amenities as a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, Automatic Climate Control, power windows with auto-up/down driver's and front passenger's windows, cruise control, USB audio interface, and seating for five passengers. Additional features that are standard on every 2016 Honda Civic include:
The all-new redesigned Civic is not only more sleek and stunning than the outgoing model that it replaced, but it is also more spacious. The sporty lines of the Civic may make it look a sports coupe, but the fact is it has more interior space than the more traditional design of the Chevy Cruze. Comparing the two rival compact sedans, you will find that the Civic tops the Cruze in offering more front headroom, hip room, legroom, and shoulder room, along with more second-row legroom and shoulder room. When someone purchases a compact car, it is often their only vehicle, so it makes sense to want to maximize space and versatility by shopping for a car that is near the top of its class for interior space. If you want to drive a sporty and stylish compact sedan that offers the interior space to rival some mid-size cars, then choose the all- Honda Civic!
If you are searching for a compact car that is big on safety, then you should take a serious look at the all-new Civic. The 2016 Honda Civic has earned five-star ratings across the board on its recent federal safety tests. The IIHS crash-tested the all-new Civic sedan and has given it top "Good" ratings in each category of testing -- and the top "Superior" rating in the front collision avoidance category! Civic owners and shoppers alike will be happy to learn that the 2016 model also achieved IIHS agency's highly coveted Top Safety Pick+ award, too. While the Chevy Cruze is certainly a safe vehicle, but it may not quite match the level of safety that comes standard on the all- Civic.
Honda's latest Civic is one supremely-equipped vehicle, even in base trim. Of course, there are many more features that are available on 2016 Civic models, including such favorites as:
