As soon as we take the performance statistics of the Cruze, we get a grasp of its uniqueness. The car comes with a 1.4-litre turbocharger engine, smaller than its opponent’s 2.0-litre capacity. For the same reason, the Cruze falls behind the Civic with 153 horsepower; the Honda Civic boasts a 158 horsepower engine. But, in terms of torque the Chevy is far more ahead than its Japanese counterpart with 177 pound-feet torque; whereas the Civic has only 138.
