Expert Quotes:

The screens had Luddites complaining of too much information and geeks pining for more.

clean and punchy sound quality [of the Bose sound syste] is competitive even with that of cars costing far more

The Volt's 20-foot power cord is tucked in a cubby under the cargo hold and lifts with a simple strap.

Similar to that in the Cadillac CTS, an actual touchscreen houses radio presets and more in-depth functions

The Volt doesn't have a lengthy list of options; but for its price of $41,000, it includes a long list of standard equipment—in addition, of course, to its leading-edge powertrain—that the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze compact doesn't.

That includes a tilting and telescoping steering wheel, automatic climate control, a navigation system, keyless entry and starting, and remote start.

The standard Bose sound system includes AM, FM, DVD-ROM, and MP3 playback, voice recognition, Bluetooth connectivity, and pause-and-play capabilities. A 60-GB hard drive is standard, 30 GB of which can be used for personal music storage. XM Satellite Radio with traffic and weather information is also standard.

The Volt is offered in six colors, including silver, black, and grey, along with Viridian Joule, a pale green. Crystal Red Metallic Tintcoat and White Diamond Tricoat are extra-cost options.

The Volt's lithium-ion battery pack is warrantied for eight years or 100,000 miles, which should reassure owners who choose to buy the car rather than lease it. Other warranties include bumper-to-bumper coverage for 3 years/36,000 miles; roadside assistance for 5 years/100,000 miles; and on the gasoline engine, limited 5-year/100,000-mile coverage as well.

Conclusion

The feature set of the 2011 Chevrolet Volt is quite robust, but there’s very little opportunity to make it your own with options.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
