Honda Civic vs Ford Fusion

  • Ratings: The newest Honda Civic carries full five-star overall safety ratings in all categories by the National Highway. The Ford Fusion fell short in Frontal Crash protection and Rollover protection ratings.
  • Interior: The Ford Fusion might offer slightly more passenger volume, but the Honda Civic evenly distributes its volume, with more space available in the backseats for the drive to Kenmore.
  • Transmission: The Honda Civic rewards drivers of all skill sets and backgrounds, with standard six-speed manual transmission and continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) available. The Ford Fusion only provides automatic transmission.
  • Efficiency: While the Fusion might contribute a bit more horsepower in its engine, like all Ford models, it falls drastically short in commuter-friendly efficiency. The Honda Civic represents a flexible car you can take on the highways outside North Tonawanda and in Buffalo city driving.
  • Convenience: All trims of the Honda Civic offer an auto-dimming rearview mirror with a HomeLink® Universal Garage Door Opener as an option. These features come wholly unavailable on the Ford fusion.
  • Financing: Our team can show you a wide range of comfortable financing or leasing options, but Honda also helps everyday drivers through the comfortable starting rate of the Honda Civic. The Ford Fusion, by contrast, starts out at a steeper rate and only increases as you upgrade trim levels.

Honda Civic vs Chevy Cruze

  • Powertrain: Even with a turbocharged engine, the new Chevy Cruze falls short in terms of overall powertrain, generating 153 total horsepower. Whereas the standard engine of the Honda Civic generates up to 158 total horsepower.
  • Versatility: The Honda Civic offers many looks for your enjoyment, available as a hatchback, coupe, or turbocharged sports car. The Chevy Cruze comes available as a sedan or a hatchback primarily.
  • Efficiency: While the efficiency numbers of the Chevy Cruze might seem superior, this sedan garners criticism by auto reviewers for lacking real-world economy. Whereas, the engine of the Civic gains praise for its commuter-friendly efficiency and smooth performance.
  • Trunk Space: When you need more space for golf clubs or groceries, the new Honda Civic has your back with up to 15 cubic feet of trunk space. The Chevy Cruze falls short in this area with less than 15 cubic feet to offer.
  • Passenger Space: While both midsize sedans seat five, the Honda Civic has a higher passenger volume, with increased backseat hip and shoulder room. The Chevy Cruze falls short in backseat passenger space while its overall passenger volume remains unlisted.
  • Convenience: Interestingly, while most vehicles nowadays come standard with steering-wheel-mounted controls for audio, cruise control, and Bluetooth® interface, the Chevy Cruze remains an exception. This feature comes unavailable on the base trim levels, requiring you to upgrade to a higher trim level.
