My driving experience of Chevrolet Cruze can be only described as perfect. Though car was only 4 days at my disposal (I rented a car) I had a time to fully test it and the results didn’t caused any discontent. Handling was very responsive and sensitive as well as the brakes. My previous experience with GM cars hadn’t a place for any pleasure, because they were just awful and creaky. But Cruze succeeded to prove the opposite. Absolutely no squeaks and rattles. Interior design is the best I’ve ever seen. Nothing superfluous, design is thoroughly thought-out.
The only negative thing as I’ve noticed - only one color scale plastic and upholstery, when all one and the same - boring, need to add colors. Leather on the steering wheel and gearshift knob, do not think I will tell it - but it's great. Only after testing the car on a road, I realized how much nicer to hold on to it than on “dead” plastic. By the way, about the plastic - the one on the top does not look cheap to touch anything. But it so nearly everywhere in this vehicle segment.
Interior for its class is pretty spacious. I also like its big and roomy trunk. Folding rear seats extend the space, but the small opening of the luggage often causes discomfort. Highlighting the trunk is quite decent. There is also a full-size spare tire.
I am happy with interior ergonomics! In general, everything is thought out and at hand. In complete LS there are 4 gloves to put a lot of things from a camera to document A4. Particularly comfortable was a glove of the front passenger seat. I would recommend to buy this car if you are not crazy about racing and value such things as thorough and impressive design, soft motion and roomy space.
Spacious and roomy salon
Nothing superfluous in design
Decent but not perfect acceleration
