But when it comes to fuel average and comfort, Toyota Corolla takes the lead.
2017 Chevrolet Cruze
One first may say that Cruze is a far-off better car than Corolla but most critics find the Corolla to be better and rather a safer car than Chevrolet Cruze. With less engine noise and a smoother ride, Corolla seems to be better than this car but when it comes to the interior Chevrolet is offering in such a range of prices, it seems to take the lead from Corolla. Other than that, Corolla offers a far better 7inch entertainment system with apple car play. It even gives off better acceleration with its turbodiesel power and has also proven to be safer than Cruze.
