Photos of the Chevrolet Cruze

Chevrolet Cruze Photos: Chevrolet Cruze front end old and new

Old face on the right, new face on the left. But the Cruze doesn't drive as sporty as it looks.

New Cruze has more dramatic body sides and a more steeply raked belt line (base of side windows).

An attractive car, but not a striking or distinctive one.

The Honda's styling is more dramatic--too much so for some people. You?

Black trim pieces complete the window outline front and rear. Not ideal, but I'll give them a pass.

Especially from the side the new Civic appears longer and lower.

The roof line sweeps in a smooth curve to a short tail.

The old Cruze was far squarer and stiffer through the rear quarters. Old Audi vs. recent Hyundai.

The new Cruze in a brighter color, with 16-wheels and no RS body kit.

Bright red might not be the best color for the new Cruze. Larger wheels than the LT's 16s also help

An attractively styled interior. Nothing crazy.

The new Honda Civic's interior takes more risks, makes a stronger visual statement.

The old Cruze's interior was among the class leaders in 2011, but the new one is much nicer.

Well-designed controls, including four knobs, except for the range selector on top of the shifter.

Chevrolet Cruze Photos: Chevrolet Cruze driver seat

Comfortable heated driver seat, but no adjustable lumbar bulge. Not an issue for my back.

The new Cruze's back seat isn't the roomiest in the class, but it might be the most comfortable.

Competitive trunk space.

The turbocharged 1.4-liter engine is efficient and sufficiently powerful, but not responsive.
