Cyclohexyl chloride is more reactive towards nucleophilic substitution reaction because C-Ce bond strength is less in cyclohexylchloride than chlorobenzene. 

In chlorobenzene, due to the conjugation of chlorine with benzene ring, partial double bond character develops between chlorine atom and carbon atom of benzene ring through which carbon is attached.
