Chevrolet Cruze Review
The Chevrolet Cruze was launched in 2009 to rival the likes of the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla Altis. It was introduced at a time when SUVs weren’t as popular as they are today and gained its popularity for being a powerful and feature-loaded executive sedan.
Today, the competition includes models like the Hyundai Elantra and Skoda Octavia, which have taken the game ahead. However, the Cruze still enjoys a strong fan-following thanks to its positioning as a driver-centric performance sedan, while the others lean towards chauffeur-driven owners. Should you choose to Cruze? Let’s find out.
The Chevrolet Cruze is certainly showing its age as its rivals are at least a generation ahead. This is particularly reflected in the interior, where the quality and space feel out of place in this segment.
However, it still gets modern features and thanks to its efficient, yet fun to drive engine, it’s still a great option to consider if you’re a driving-enthusiast. The car has also proven to be quite reliable and enjoys a good reputation in the pre-owned car market too.
