About Chevrolet Cruze

Where foreign automakers once dominated the compact-car segment, we now see the domestic industry making a resilient comeback. Leading the pack is the 2015 Chevrolet Cruze compact sedan, a thoroughly complete small car offering an impressive array of features and trims. In a matchup with such heavyweights as the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla, the Cruze offers more engine choices, including a fuel-efficient diesel. The Cruze feels more substantial than most economy cars, with a solid feel, an extremely quiet cabin and ride and handling comparable to many midsize sedans. By adding the latest high-tech features, Chevy hopes to lure away younger buyers currently shopping for cars like the Ford Focus and Hyundai Elantra.

"I drove every "hot" mid-range car on the market from Altima and Accord to Volkswagen and Volvo - and this car won hands down! It's stylish, attractive, comes with a turbo 4 cycl that has more than enough kick, gets GREAT gas mileage, is small enough to park anywhere and yet feels roomy inside and seats four comfortably. Chevy nailed it on this design! I love the interior and textured/upholstered dashboard. The navigation is well positioned for easy viewing, the controls are at my fingertips and there is a LOT of dashboard information that's easy to access. Also, I'm short - 5'2" so "fitting" properly in a car and having great visability isn't easy for me. The Cruze has adjustable options like telescopic wheel and seat belt height. And when I pull my seat way up, I'm not six inches in front of the cup holder on the console!!! Because lets be honest, everyone is NOT the height and arm length of the average man in the USA!!! Thank you Chevy for getting this car right! I love it!!!"

"1LT auto with RS Pkg. I bought this car for its gas saving capabilities but I got so much more. Aside from having great looks my average combined MPG is 34 and over 40 MPG on the HWY and seems to get better with every fill-up, whach are few and far between. The interior is well thoughtout and the fit and finish looks great. All controls are at my fingertips. Steering is responsive and the 1.4L turbo has more than enough power. The seats are firm and there is a lot of leg and headroom. I have read comments about the transmission but my auto shifts smooth as silk. The manual shifting overide can greatly increase the fun factor and I find myself using it 30 to 40% of the time. I have zero issues driving in hilly terrain and the car is a blast to drive on curves. The trunk is huge for this class of vehicle and the drivers info center is convinently placed for easy viewing and the controls for the info center are easy to operate while driving. The handsfree bluetooth was easy to pair to my phone and since the cabin of the Cruze is so quiet it works better than any I have ever used. The crusie control speed settings are displayed and the cruise has no problem keeping the car at set speed. I highly reccomend getting the connectivity pkg and drivers convinent pkg. I shopped the imports prior buying the Cruze and although the Cruze may be a few dollars more than the imports the features, size, room, and VALUE of the Cruze is worth every penny and exceeds the others. All in all the Cruze has exceed my expectations in every way. Way to go Chevy, you have done well with this car and be sure to tell those who build this car in OHIO Great Job!"
