2016 Chevy Cruze vs 2016 Toyota Corolla

If you think about it, purchasing a compact sedan can be a little like buying your first home. You want to make sure it’s big (but not too big), inexpensive (but not too inexpensive), and that it feels welcoming every time you go inside. It might not be the last one you ever buy, but it’s what you need for the particular stage of life you find yourself in. That’s why two of the most popular models in the segment, the 2016 Chevy Cruze and 2016 Toyota Corolla, are frequently recognized as among the best the segment has to offer. They are easy on the pocket book, they can fit all the passenger and cargo that is necessary, and they make the most of their space by offering great amenities. That said, how do they compare to one another?

Perhaps most important in comparing the two is recognizing the different approaches they take to performance. While the Corolla employs a standard 1.8L four-cylinder, the Cruze now offers a standard 1.4L Turbo. The result? The Cruze rips off 153 hp -- a great deal more than the Corolla -- while achieving up to 40 highway mpg. Meanwhile, it’s all-new style is flowing and easy on the eyes, while its price tag is a half-thousand dollars beneath that of the Corolla.

Whenever a best-selling model undergoes a full redesign, it’s usually an indication that big things are afoot for a model. After all, why mess with a good thing (which the outgoing Cruze clearly is) if it isn’t because you want to shake things up? That’s precisely what happens with the 2016 Chevy Cruze, which takes the pedigree and legacy of the previous model and just cranks everything up a bit. It starts with the style and turbocharged performance, both of which we described above. However, that certainly isn’t all that the 2016 Chevy Cruze offers.

Once inside the 2016 Chevy Cruze, up to five adult occupants enjoy soft-touch materials throughout, while the tech features have been updated to appeal to the next-gen tinkerer in all of us.
