The Chevrolet Cruze is part of the very competitive compact-car segment. Since last year, you can get it in a hatchback configuration, which adds to its versatility. It comes standard with a turbocharged, 1.4L engine, but it’s also possible to opt for the turbo-diesel, 1.6L engine. The most luxurious Premier version adds a sportier rear suspension, 17-inch wheels, leather seats, a remote starter and a few other treats.
