The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Chevrolet Cruze is one of the smartest picks for anyone wanting practicality, comfort, and safety in a compact sedan—although it's missing the fun-to-drive edge of some other models. Remember the Neon? The 2013 Dodge Dart brings some of the same passion back to Chrysler's compact-car lineup.
