Let’s Get Ready to Rumble – Comparing the 2019 Civic Sedan in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota

December 17th, 2019 by

It’s a battle of the sedans for today’s topic, as we compare the 2019 Honda Civic Sedan in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, against the Chevrolet Cruze. Each vehicle has its own twist of style and abilities, but only one can provide an ultimate driving performance. We already know which car is superior, but we want you to decide for yourself, so sit back and read what we have discovered about these two sedans. 


The Civic Sedan is well known for putting your performance needs in mind. Every inch of this Honda is constructed to deliver unparalleled performance, from the suspension system down to its large tires. For the suspension, you’ll find that the Civic offers superior ride and handling due to the fully independent front and rear systems. Paired with this, are front and rear stabilizer bars to keep the Civic flat and controlled when cornering. The Cruze doesn’t have a rear stabilizer bar and only hosts a semi-independent rear suspension system. When mentioning the Civic’s tires, you’ll see that they are larger than what the Cruze offers (215/55R16 vs. 195/65R15) for better traction and handling. Even our Civic LX model’s tires provide better handling because of their height to width ratio. By having a lower 55 series profile, the sidewalls are stiffer than the Cruze’s 65 series tires.


Once inside the Civic’s cabin, you’ll be able to settle in and relax with four other passengers and plenty of cargo space. With elegant features throughout the cabin, your passengers will enjoy leather-trimmed seats, while you, as the driver, can indulge in a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. Having more passenger and cargo room than the Cruze allows the Civic to be rated as a Mid-size car by the EPA, while the Cruze is still labeled as a Compact. When we put it in numbers, the Civic has 3.8 cubic feet more passenger volume (97.8 vs. 94), which can provide the perfect amount of head, leg, and shoulder room, so no one feels cramped. As for the cargo, the Civic hosts a low liftover design of 26.8 inches, which makes loading and unloading more accessible, and its 15.1 cubic feet of space will allow for more suitcases on your next road trip. The Cruze’s liftover is 27.4 inches while its trunk offers 14.8 cubic feet of space.
