2018 Chevy Cruze vs 2018 Toyota Corolla

Versatile, comfortable, refined: these words only begin to scratch the ‘descriptive’ surface of Chevrolet’s latest offering. The 2018 Chevy Cruze has been attaining some pretty rave reviews, even before its official release and there really isn’t a question of ‘why?’
In the ‘compact cars’ league, the competition is rife. Every vehicle manufacturer out there permanently vies for the number one spot. Introduce Toyota and their 2018 Corolla. In comparison to the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze, the 2018 Corolla sadly falls short in just about every comparative area. Toyota has made quite a valiant attempt to dominate the ‘compact car’ market, but when a rival is up against Chevrolet, the game ends before it even begins.
Having ‘options,’ and a multitude of choices keeps a consumer interested in a product and Chevrolet offers exactly this with their 2018 Cruze. With so many ways to personally configure your perfect ride, the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze is the must-have ‘compact car’ of the year.

Schedule A Test Drive


Chevrolet has made the inclusion of a clean, simplistically designed dashboard readily available across all of their 2018 Cruze models. Chevrolet always has the finest attention to detail and the interior styling of their latest vehicle is no different. Conveniently and efficiently set up are the functional buttons and switches, which makes it a breeze to make use of either one of them. Often one finds that functionality and proficient design layout sacrifices style and elegance, as is the case with the 2018 Toyota Corolla. Toyota, very disappointingly after all these years, has still decided to include “blank switches” within the cabin of their car. This is something that we gratefully do not encounter within the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze. The 2018 Chevy has beautiful interior upholstery and really fine stitching work. If interior cabin space means anything to you, then the 14 cubes of room in the trunk of the 2018 Cruze will definitely catch your attention. The LS and L models offer up to 14.8 cubic feet. Fold the rear seat down and you will experience an incredible 47 cubes of spaciousness. Compared to the 2018 Toyota Corolla, Chevrolet’s 2018 Cruze feels rather like a small up-market city apartment on wheels.


Standard on most 2018 Chevy Cruze models is a turbo 4, a 1.4-liter engine which is rated with 153 horsepower and a torque output of 177 pounds per ft. This strong engine is mated to manual, 6-speed transmission with the immediate customizable option of an automatic transmission, also with 6 gear selections. Both the sedan and hatchback versions have had the pleasurable introduction of an inline 4, 1.6 liter, turbodiesel engine. This engine option can be paired with either a 6 speed or 9-speed automatic configuration. This diamond of an engine boasts 137 horsepower and the torque output capacity of 240 lbs per ft. When compared to the average 132 – 140 horsepower engines of the 2018 Toyota Corolla, Chevrolet isn’t even fazed in the least.

Tech, Driving Performance, & Safety

As a standard inclusion across the entire 2018 Chevrolet Cruze lineup, we find a gorgeous seven inch, touch screen for the brilliant Chevy infotainment system. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also included and adds to the convenience of the vehicle. The 2018 Toyota Corolla only comes with a 6.1-inch touchscreen as a standard offering and one would need to fork out more cash for ‘higher end’ options.
The 2018 Chevy Cruze is a swift handling, road hugging, efficiently responsive compact car. The intuitive transmission configurations add to the innate drivability of the vehicle and have been tested and designed to perform at optimal levels. The 2018 Toyota Corolla, with its average engines and average ratings, cannot match up to what Chevrolet has on offer.
When it comes to safety, Chevrolet generally ‘pulls out all the stops.’ The 2018 Chevrolet Cruze is a true testament to that and will add confidence to your daily drive.
