Chevrolet Cruze Chances Destroyed By Honda Civic

By  | 

Chevrolet was pretty upbeat back when they launched the latest generation Cruze but that was also before they realize the compact car is not as good as what rival vehicles are offering.

The Cruze may be equipped with a brand new engine with more power to offer but it is no match for the ever-popular Honda Civic and the Mazda 3. The Civic, in particular, have been heftily upgraded and it leaves the Cruze lost in its shadow.

This cannot be helped as the Civic runs on a new 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that can develop 174hp. That is a lot more than what the Cruze can offer.

Fast forward till today, we can see the obvious outcome taking shape. The Civic remains to be the bestselling car in the compact sedan category despite it experiencing a decline for the month of October.

Honda only managed to sell 26,359 Civics last month and despite the decline, it is still far superior to the Cruze’s sales figures. The latter only managed 17,126 units sold. It just goes to say that the Cruze chances of stamping its authority in the industry have been destroyed by the Civic.
