2011 Chevrolet Cruze Review

(3 Stars)  A Chevy compact with promise

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The Chevrolet Cruze is an all new compact four door that is offering a whole lot of features in a very small package. GM has never had a very successful small car and has many problems with their choices for the compact models they have offered. The Cruze hopefully proves to change Chevrolets track record and offer an award winning package to the public. This small sedan is going to be in direct competition with the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla and Ford Focus so the designers and engineers at Chevrolet knew they had their work cut out for themselves.

The Cruze comes with a 6 speed automatic transmission that is not even an option for most of the others in its class. OnStar, 4 airbags, built in navigation; XM Radio and a traction control system (StabiliTrack) all come standard on the most basic Cruze. Many of these options are not even offered little love bundled as standard feature on any of the other compacts in the Cruzes class. Not only that, but the Chevrolet Cruze is also the most fuel efficient in its class, claiming over 36 MPG on the highway this may be the car to beat in the compact class this year.
