2016 Chevy Cruze vs 2016 Toyota Corolla
Getting to the bottom of the veritable Rubik's Cube that is the compact sedan segment can be tricky. There are so many models to choose from, with more seemingly coming out every week or so, and many are vaguely reminiscent of each other. Not so with the two models seen here, however. The 2016 Chevy Cruze and 2016 Toyota Corolla both employ compelling performance and appealing style -- including an all-new design for the best-selling Cruze -- while each being broadly satisfying enough to cater to a wide swath of prospective buyers. That said, which model should you choose in your next compact sedan purchase?
First off, let’s address the elephant under the hood: the Cruze is now offering standard turbo power, courtesy of a 1.4L turbocharged four-cylinder engine. It really wouldn’t matter what engine the Corolla rolled out, since it would likely still fall short, but the 1.8L of the Toyota doesn’t stand a chance. The sizeable edge in power and fuel economy, along with the agile whip of turbo energy, make the Cruze the clear choice in terms of performance. Factor in the all-new style and wonderful tech features, and it becomes immediately clear which model is the new face of the compact sedan segment.
