kkchai Can't wait 1S author's comment on the comparison between Cruze and Forte.
18 Aug 2009
Stefano
The rear really looks like Forte, but the front looks like the newer generations of Chevy pickup trucks... maybe it's the angle of the shot...

Autobots... roll out...!!!
18 Aug 2009
eugn86 I think the rear doesn't fit the front. Front looks bold and intimidating. I think the rear lamps too big. Anyway, the reviews i read so far all very good. This will be a hit.
19 Aug 2009
LMLP640 The design is too Korean and the price is a slightly steep but i think it should be a good car to drive in
21 Aug 2009
wilswong Looks bulky... the bonnet is really 'thick'
22 Aug 2009
jj_princess Interior looks good! But the power abit low, only 107bhp, as compared to other korean sedans like Forte and Avante with 124bhp and 121bhp respectively. And these 2 cars are cheaper.!!
24 Aug 2009
dan2y The Cruze comes with a 6 speed auto transmission coupled with a very good sound insulation, well weighted hydraulic power steering and slightly heavier foot pedal. All these make the car quite diff...

Are they following Toyota route (as in Camry to Altis)?
