  • The Chevrolet Cruze comes standard with a 1.4L turbocharged I4 engine that offers 153 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque for seamless power you’ll appreciate
  • The Hyundai Elantra comes standard with a 2.0L regular unleaded I4 engine that only provides 147 hp and 132 lb-ft of torque

Exterior Options

When you’re looking to buy your next new model, you want a vehicle that highlights your style while standing out on the road. The Chevrolet Cruze gives you the ability to do this because it comes with two body style options: a standard cab or a hatchback. This way, you can pick which model makes sense for your specific driving and hauling needs. The Elantra has just one body style, limiting it even further.
