2012 HOLDEN CRUZE SRi V Review

Have had my Cruze since dec 11 and i love her to pieces. It's a novated lease but if im still around when my lease term of 5 yrs is up im def buying her. It's so small looking but heaps of room and comfort once you're inside.

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...
