Photos of the Chevrolet Cruze

Nothing objectionable unless you don't care for big gold bowties.

Identical to gas-powered Cruze save for slightly different wheels.

Handsome aside from the big black plastic triangle on the rear pillar. Why have it?

Even more plain than the Cruze.

If you look closely you can spot the little green Diesel badge on the trunk.

Standard leather seats, cloth trim flows from doors onto instrument panel. Solid construction.

Symmetrical design.

The Volkswagen is also more plainly styled on the inside. Its interior looks and feels cheaper.

MyLink works well. Buttons below it could be better organized. Euro: power locks on center stack.

Cloth trim on instrument panel controversial. Ledge below it hard to the touch, not aligned well.

Comfortable seats are even more comfortable and supportive in cloth, not available in the Diesel.

Tight back seat.

The Cruze's trunk is much more competitive than its rear seat, if still a big short of the Jetta's.

2.0T diesel engine much larger than the 1.4T gas engine, which looks puny in here.

Among other things, the $2,390 higher price for the diesel pays for fancy fuel injection hardware.

Green pump for this one. Diesel usually costs at least as much as premium gas.
