Small cars that do it all may seem like a far-fetched dream, but the 2017 Honda Civic does indeed accomplish everything you would want and more. Its engine generates peppy power, making for a fun ride every time while offering a sense of security. It does face stiff competition from the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze, though, and understandably so. However, when you get down to the details, the Civic clearly excels. Find out all of the details in our comprehensive comparison, then head to Silko Honda to put the Civic to the test!

Performance and MPG

It’s rare that a model excels in both the performance and efficiency categories, but the 2017 Honda Civic does just that. The sedan version of this model achieves an EPA-estimated 31 mpg city and 40 mpg highway1, while also churning out 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque. The 2017 Chevrolet Cruze hardly compares, with its 30 mpg city, according to EPA estimates. Meanwhile, it only musters 153 hp. By those figures alone, there’s simply no comparison—the Civic edges out the Cruze.

Safety Ratings

When you slide behind the wheel, you want to know that your vehicle is safe and secure, and you can rest assured with the 2017 Honda Civic. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the 2017 model five stars out of five for overall safety, as well as five stars for rollover safety*. The 2017 Chevrolet Cruze, on the other hand, received a lesser four stars in both categories, solidifying the Civic safety dominance.


Introductory models that come loaded with features mean you’re getting more bang for your buck, and on the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze, you’d have to make expensive upgrades for many basic amenities. The 2017 Honda Civic, though, has tons of equipment from the start. You’ll have automatic climate control, cruise control, map lights, and steering-wheel-mounted controls, all of which aren’t standard on the Cruze. Additionally, you’ll have hill-start assist at your disposal, which you wouldn’t have if you go with Chevrolet. As such, the 2017 Honda Civic can certainly accommodate your needs and wants.
