2016 Chevrolet Cruze Limited vs. 2016 Toyota Corolla
The 2016 Chevrolet Cruze and the 2016 Toyota Corolla are both compelling compact cars that provide the complete package of efficiency, fun to drive dynamics, and high tech features. If you’re trying to decide between these two top small sedans then you should read this comparison to find out which one will be the better option for your money.
Powertrains, Performance, and Efficiency
Take a look under the hood and you’ll see some differences between these two vehicles:
- Corolla Performance: The Corolla comes with a 1.8L four-cylinder engine that makes 132 hp. The base automatic transmission is rated at 27 mpg city/36 mpg highway/31 mpg combined based on EPA estimates.
- Cruze Performance: The Chevy Cruze comes with a 138 hp 1.8L four-cylinder standard, and an EPA estimate of up 22 mpg city/35 mpg highway. Opt for the 1.4L turbo four-cylinder and you get 138 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque, along with an EPA estimate of up to 26 mpg city/38 mpg highway. The Diesel model gets 151 hp and 264 lb-ft of torque on tap and an EPA estimate of 27 mpg city/46 mpg highway.
You can see that the Cruze wins out when it comes down to powertrain options, performance, and efficiency!
Warranty and Maintenance Coverage
The warranty and maintenance coverage of the Chevrolet Cruze also comes out ahead of the Corolla. The Cruze is covered for 100,000-miles/5-years of powertrain coverage and 100,000-miles/5-years of roadside assistance. The Toyota Corolla is only covered for 60,000-miles/5-years of powertrain coverage and only 25,000-miles/2-years of roadside assistance.
Features and Options
Two big differences between the Cruze and the Corolla:
- The Cruze gets OnStar telematics with emergency notification, roadside assistance, stolen vehicle tracking, remote door unlocking, and 4G LTE wireless connectivity with in-car WiFi hotspot. Nothing like that comes on the Corolla.
- The Cruze also gets remote keyless entry—a feature that’s conspicuously missing on the Corolla.
