Launched in 2009 the Chevrolet Cruze has been a huge hit with outselling its rivals every month. Actually its not hard to see why as the Cruze has great looks and fantastic performance. One of the major selling points of the Cruze has been its dynamic styling with sharp muscular lines all over giving the car a sporty yet an elegant look.

The interior similarly has more styling flair than its rivals with a futuristic looking dashboard. It has got many gizmos like a start/stop buton and cruise control. Available with an automatic transmission also, the Cruze has covered all the areas and certainly has everything a luxury car buyer wants. But it seems GM wants to improve it even further. They are going to do some major updates notably addressing the shortcomings of the car.

Chevrolet Cruze is a stylish new sedan and brings very modern and contemporary looks to the segment. The Cruze has been a hit product for GM in India and it has done very well for itself in the segment with only one engine option available. In June 2012 Chevrolet Cruze was updated with a new engine and minor tweaks and that has certainly helped matters and make it remain fresh. Looks wise things remain the same. It still has the sleek and sharp lines which makes it look fast when it’s standing still. Chevrolet Cruze brings top notch paint quality while the fit and finish is excellent.

Inside, it has very comfortable seats which give excellent lumbar and thigh support to the driver and all of its other 4 passengers.

The new Cruze now gets a dead pedal as standard feature, 6-way power adjusted driver’s seat and the electric windows now come with anti-pinch technology. The in-car entertainment also received an update with surround sound feature. 

With improved torque and 163 BHP of power, the updated sedan can now break into triple digit in just 9.5 seconds and can reach a top speed of 220 km/h.It is a high performing engine and offers excellent amount of torque for in-city drives and plenty of punch for highway runs. The new Cruze has a 163 bhp diesel engine and it gives about 13 kmpl in a combined cycle which is decent considering the performance in offer and the increased power.  Cruze sedan loves to cruise on the highways at great speeds thanks to good combination of engine performance excellent high speed stability offered by its excellent chassis and suspension combination.

Chevrolet Cruze has a slightly firm suspension setup but the ride quality isn’t compromised and it’s a pleasure to drive in city and absolutely blast on the highways during weekend getaways.

Proud to have one of the beast in my hand

By Posted on 19 Sep 13, 08:44 PM

Pros Great Looks,Good Performance,Great Interiors,Comfort,

Cons Average Fuel Efficiency,

I am with the beast (cruze) arround the roads in himachal and chandigarh and feel it comfortable in almost every aspects in dry or wet conditions. Best one is the thrust which I feel every time I accelerate it.breaking is good and cornering on himachal roads on high speed is so smooth never felt it out of control. Only lighting is not to the mark. Features provided in cabin is very nice...sound of music system is good, cabin is silent, looks and feel of dashboard is too sporty. Rear ac vents under seats is so so if provided somewhere up side will be a correction. Suspension is nice. In rear space is huge for luggage. Overall I found it very good in the segment and love to drive it.

The diesel rocket 2010 CRUZE LTZ

By Sumanth Posted on 25 Sep 13, 12:00 AM

Pros Great Looks,Good Performance,Great Interiors,Comfort,stunning looks, good to modify, short gear shifts

Cons Average Fuel Efficiency,

its a wonderful car to drive and a real head turner.. quite comfortable too but rear legroom is an issue.. just luv the start stop feature, retractable mirrors and the sunroof etc.. The most annoying thing about the car is the turbo lag, you would need to change gears if you slow down or sometimes to overtake.. Mileage is also low but the car feels very powerful and classy.. overall I love the looks and the car is quite dependable.. service is excellent and reasonable..

Convenient Cruze

By Shreyans Pokharna Posted on 24 Sep 13, 08:29 PM

Pros Great Looks,Good Performance,Great Interiors,Comfort,

Cons Average Fuel Efficiency,

The Chevrolet Cruze is massive when it comes to space. The cabin is welcoming to the driver as well as the passengers. The interiors of Cruze are charismatic with the leather-covered upholstery. The tilt steering wheel gives me extra comfort. Buttons for audio and cruise control on the steering add to the convenience.
