The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. 38 mpg; a sleek, sophisticated look; and even more value for the money confirm that this little sedan has officially left the Corolla in the dust.
