The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
5.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Chevy Cruze adds a hatch to the family that retains the same good ride and ample space, without being boomy or loud. The 2017 Nissan Sentra spiffs up its performance in SR Turbo trim, but it's still more a need-to-buy than an want-to-buy car.
