Chevrolet Cruze Overview

The Cruze is Chevrolet's mainstream compact sedan. It feels solid and substantial, handles nicely, and has a firm but controlled ride. The base 1.8-liter four-cylinder and the quieter, more refined up-level turbocharged 1.4-liter each returned an unimpressive 26 mpg. An Eco trim is also available, but improves overall fuel economy by just one mpg. The well-finished cabin feels spacious up front, even for tall drivers, but is cramped in the rear. Noise levels are fairly restrained for a car in this class. The diesel version got 33 mpg overall, and an impressive 49 mpg highway in our tests. Reliability has been below average.
