The Review

This car is handsomely designed and has good overall proportions. Due to its weight, the pickup is slower. It is a compromise for the safety it offers. You can feel the thickness of the steel sheets compare to the other makes. The slower pickup has contributed positively to the ride quality (no more dizziness due to the "rocking forward and backward" due to the sudden acceleration). As a result, the ride is more composed. The way the suspension is setup also minimise bodyroll that is quite common even in more expensive cars that I have driven. I truly enjoy every moment in this car for the feel, comfort and security it offers.

Still solid body, better drive than the 2010 Cruze.

The Review

The 2011 Cruze improvement over the last model is primarily in the GPS/Bluetooth feature support, which I find it value for money considering the price range. I test drove the 2009 Cruze last year. I was told the pickup is now much better as the 2011 Cruze is fitted with a new engine with bigger hp. However, I find the improvement is only marginal and the pickup concerns I have remain. Other than that, the new features added like GPS. Bluetooth, USB/iPod connectivity is excellent and seldom available for similar priced or more expensive cars.

Strengths

Strong body, stable while cruising Feature rich like GPS, auto-headlight, auto rainsor, USB/iPod connectivity

Weaknesses

Pickup a tad slow

A lot of fun cruzing down the highway

The Review

Just drove my friend's Cruze and I have to say the car is really good. The steering is responsive and the drive is very comfortable. The pick up is a bit slow, but that's cause the car is heavy (safety mah) The interior is great. Got a nice refined feel. No shiny plastic anywhere. Console design looks great to. Sound system is ok. The car has a 6cd changer plus a mp3 aux cable. Boot is really spacious too. This is a good family sedan. BUT my friend told me fuel consumption is poor.

Strengths

Saftety Drives like a conti Refined interior

Weaknesses

Poor fuel consumption

Comfortable, chic and pleasant ride

The Review

Very comfortable to drive around the city. Very good value for money. I took it up to KL with my wife and 2 kids to do some mileage. The ride was very smooth. Kids slept all the way at the back even through the bumpy parts. Fuel comsumption was better than expected. Really love the exterior shoulder line and the front. Looks very masculine yet soft at the same time. Certainly drew some stares from the malaysians when we pulled up at the rest points.haha It has very good ground clearance as well. Managed to clear the MSCPs with superb ease especially on the humps as compared to the Civic. Previously considered getting the Civic but the Cruze was cheaper and a much more comfortable ride. Certainly no regrets on getting this car.

Strengths

Comfortable ride Features, Chic and modern interior. Great exterior Good display layout Spacious Love the dashboard layout. Above average fuel economy Quiet engine

Weaknesses

Average pick up speed. Feels a bit underpowered. Feels sluggish with passengers and load.

A good value conti car that is stable and quiet!

The Review

Chevrolet Cruze is a good value for money car. Recently my cruze got into an accident and was hit by a taxi. The taxi front bumper hit right onto the driver side door and was creating a big wide dent on it. I was lucky that I was driving a Cruze and the damage is only confined to the door panel itself and the rest are still intact including myself! You can always choose to modify your Cruze to have a better pickup and FC but of cos that is subject to risk in having your car warranty voided.

Strengths

Good value for money, safe car with Euro NCAP 5 star, comfortable and quiet.

Weaknesses

initial pickup is slow due to its weight, engine can get noisy when rev too hard, Fuel Consumption is high as compared to Jap/Korean car models.
