After much research and comparisons with other small cars and numerous test drives, we waited for the release of the Cruze hatch. Originally intended to get the 1.4 Turbo manual, but came home with the auto.
Disappointed with fuel economy. Over 4000kms it has dropped from the initial 10.6 l/100km to the current 8.7 despite a flat 40km drive daily and numerous long trips. Nowhere near the 6.9 advertised.
Bluetooth glitches, unable to use voice recognition.
Other than that, despite sluggish take-off, a safe, comfortable, quiet ride, but would not buy again.
