Editorial Test Drive Review of Chevrolet Cruze

 Chevrolet has set a nice benchmark for itself with the Cruze by placing it as a performance diesel sedan in its segment. The Cruze is powered by a turbocharged 2.0 litre four cylinder common rail diesel engine with dual overhead camshafts that is capable of belting out 166PS of power @ 3,800 rpm and 380Nm of torque @ 2,000 rpm. This makes the Cruze quite a potent sedan and is something that indeed works in driving in customers as you enjoy the best of both world in terms of performance and efficiency with the car sporting an ARAI claimed fuel economy of 17.3 km/l.The Chevrolet Cruze is available with a choice of six-speed manual gearbox and a six-speed automatic gearbox.

The Chevrolet Cruze comes with a suspension setup that does crash through sharp bumps, but is otherwise capable of dealing with from poor road conditions and at the same time holds the road reasonably well around corners but it could do better and the steering needs to weigh up in a more linear manner.

The Chevrolet Cruze is a well built car and comes with decent quality of materials and fit and finish for its segment. The top end LTZ model also comes with leather upholstery and is fitted with features such as electric ORVMs, heated ORVMs, auto dimming interior rear view mirror, a double din stereo with steering mounted controls, electric driver’s seat, cruze control, engine start/stop button, rain sensing wipers and more.

On the safety front, the Chevy Cruze comes with disc brakes all around, anti-lock brakes, front and side airbags and height adjustable seat belts.

TS SIDHU | Posted on Dec,02,2013 at 06:55 AM
I am driving Cruz since Feb 2010. Mine was 3rd Cruz purchased at Chandigarh. Since then completed 1,50,000 Kms. Very
good car with tight road clearance for Indian road conditions. Often hits ground with little endulating. AC is a problem
in new car. Leaka Reply to this post
