One of the most popular compact cars on the market is the Chevrolet Cruze, and with the 2013 model, Chevy has come back stronger than ever before. The Cruze looks and feels better than ever before, with great interior and exterior designs along with a driving experience that deftly balances a smooth ride with responsive steering.
The makers of the Cruze have also introduced more variants on the basic model, and for the more environmentally conscious driver, Chevy offers the “Cruze Eco”, a version of the 2013 Cruze that nabs an incredible 42 miles per gallon on the highway. The Eco manages this through a number of features, including fuel efficient tires, dropping 100 pounds of weight, and adding forged alloy wheels.
Of course, to many, the most important features are safety features, and thankfully the Cruze shines brightly here as well. When put through the rigorous US government crash test rating procedures, the Cruze received an overall rating of 5 stars, and was found to be able to make a 60 to 0 mile per hour stop in 122 feet, even when equipped with the tires found on the Eco version of the car.
Overall, the Cruze took a giant leap forward this year, leaping from a position equal to or ahead of the giant pack of compact cars to about as far ahead as can be of them, with a bevy of new features, models and a high safety rating, there’s no going wrong with a Cruze.
