AFTER winning the 2010-2011 Car of the Year-Philippines, we’ll take another closer look on the attributes and value of the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze.
Lets start with the exterior.
At first look, the Cruze has a striking appeal. It has a cutting-edge technology that will definitely get the nod of today’s discriminating buyers. The Cruze body design has a well-defined shoulder lines that crosses behind the front and rear back of the car, making it more quite similar to BMW series 5.
As soon as you step inside the Cruze, you’d be surprised at how spacious the vehicle is. It has a better comfort and passsengers won’t complain of back pains even after a long tiring trip. In other words, roominess has been carefully benchmarked, as you get lots of head and knee space.
Another one of the kind beauty is the driver’s seat. It has an optitron instrument cluster and 3-spoke wishbone steering wheel with audio controls, which is very useful in all aspect. The rest of the passenger cabin offers 6-disc audio system with MP3 playback (which includes USB conncetivity and six-speaker), cozy leather seats, top-dashboard storage bin, power-folding side mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, front-seat armrest, and meter light adjuster. What’s more is that the Cruze provides safety equipment such as dual front and side airbags, ABS, EBD, and stability control.
Adding substanstially to Cruze’s attributes is the 1.8-liter engine matted with 6-speed automatic transmission, which can pull a decent power of 138-horsepower. Comfortable creature comforts and a spacious interior makes this car a pleasant companion pn holiday destinations or traversing the metro.
If you’re a more conscious fuel person, Chevy comes out with a 2.0-liter diesel-fed version of Cruze, which is pegged at 1,228,888.00.
And if you’re not still convinced on what the Cruze can offer, just look on how the gas lid operates; all you need to do is to tap the cover gas lid, and automatically it will open. Believe it? Ahh, I guess, you’ll need to see it for yourself.
Still, if you’re thinking of buying a new vehicle for your family, don’t think twice for the Chevrolet Cruze. With a pricetag of 1,078,888, and with five years warranty, certainly, it gives you the best deal!
