The 2011 Chevrolet Cruze is making a splash in the auto world, and it’s not hard to figure out why. Ranking highly in everything from performance to safety to reliability, the Cruze is a competitive compact car suited for almost every driver.
The Cruze replaced the earlier Chevy Cobalt and exceeds it in almost every way with its great new features. One of the most exciting features is its ECO trim level, which has incredible fuel economy reaching 28 mpg in the city and 42 mpg on the highway. The Cobalt ECO achieves its amazing fuel efficiency not through expensive hybrid technology, but thoroughly researched enhancement of the frame’s aerodynamics, mass reduction, and powertrain optimization.
A Revolutionary Compact
A first generation model, the Cruze is a significant achievement for Chevrolet in the compact car category. The Cruze’s overall driving dynamics and design rival and even outperform other compact sedans like the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla. Its modest exterior styling is spare, clean, and efficient, just like its superior mechanical design, and complements the simple but elegant interior, which adds a hint of luxury. And although its smooth ride and efficient design are extremely practical, the Cruze is fun to drive—its powerful engine propels its small frame to impressive speeds. The Cruze continues to receive high marks in reviews, test drives, and road comparisons.
