2016 Honda Civic Touring vs 2016 Chevy Cruze LTZ
If you are looking to purchase a new compact sedan, you picked a great time to be in the market for one. The compact cars that manufacturers are designing these days are sportier, more efficient and loaded with tons of great safety and entertainment technology features. Two vehicles that have just been redesigned for 2016 include the Honda Civic and the Chevy Cruze. These are definitely two of the most impressive vehicles available today, so we wanted to give car buyers a better idea of what to expect from each with the 2016 Honda Civic Touring vs 2016 Chevy Cruze LTZ comparison.
There’s a lot to love about each of these vehicles, but what we really enjoy are the power plants under the hood. Both the 2016 Honda Civic Touring and 2016 Chevy Cruze LTZ boast an impressive turbocharged engine. However, the 2016 Civic’s engine does have more horsepower and gets better fuel economy than the 2016 Cruze’s engine. The Civic also includes a sporty, lightning quick CVT, while the Cruze still runs on a more traditional 6-speed automatic.
Plenty of Great Features in the 2016 Civic Touring
Few compact sedans on the market today will be able to match the offerings that the 2016 Honda Civic Touring has inside of it. The 2016 Chevy Cruze LTZ comes close, but we still don’t think it quite keeps up with this outstanding Civic model. The Civic Touring comes equipped with LED headlights, rain sensing wipers, a dual-zone automatic climate control system, heated front and rear seats, power adjustable driver and passenger seats, and a push button start.
There are also plenty of great technology features that customers will have access to in the 2016 Honda Civic Touring.
