The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Chevrolet Cruze might now be one of the oldest designs in its class, but it remains one of the strongest entries -- especially for those focused on comfort, practicality, and fuel-efficiency. The 2015 Nissan Sentra isn't at all the performer of the segment, but it's certainly a comfortable, spacious car for the money.
