The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
7.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Chevy Cruze offers lots of compelling reasons to select it, but we’d like to see more safety tech on its standard equipment roster. The 2018 Honda Civic is a good car made better by plenty of options and value at nearly every stop.
