http://blogs.insideline.com/roadtest....html#commentsMy first experience behind the wheel of the Cruze was a pretty enjoyable one. The car's sheet metal doesn't do much for me, but its handling is another story.
The Cruze felt tight as a Beverly Hills face lift as it cheerfully tackled the avenues and boulevards of my neighborhood. And the steering was a real pleasure -- exact and not too light. The car might not be an all-star in straight-line acceleration, but there was enough hustle in its turbocharged 1.4 to keep a smirk on my face.
The economy-car segment now has another fun-to-drive choice for shoppers to consider.
GM needs to rethink not bringing the Cruze hatch over.
