TALE OF THE TAPE
: The Chevrolet Cruz might not be excellent, but it does nearly everything very well, and with its low-entry pricepoint, the Cruz boasts a dominant PfP rating. It’s a small, fun car that handles well and is responsive to the driver’s commands, has great safety ratings and sports an interior that would feel at home in a more expensive vehicle. The Chevy Cruz’s solid performance combined with its low cost make it an incredibly smart buy.
