Chevrolet Cruze

Price: $17,275 (LS sedan)
Overall Rating: 8.2
Key Takeaway: The 2011 Chevy Cruze certainly isn't a car that will set your heart racing, but it manages to combine a refined ride quality and tactile interior with the no-nonsense, space-efficient packaging--all with good value for the money.
Strongest Attributes: Safety, Quality (Comfort)

While the Ford Focus aims for a little excitement, GM's 2011 Chevy Cruze takes aim at the heart of the small-car market—especially practically-minded young families and those who simply want a comfortable, economical small sedan on a tight budget. It's certainly not daring or distinctive from the outside, but to those practical considerations the Cruze is a home run, with nearly the interior comfort of a mid-size sedan, an excellent ride, and top-notch safety. There's also a high-mpg Cruze Eco model, and much of the model line has a smooth, efficient new turbocharged 1.4-liter engine.
