    Cruze gets kudos on Edmunds' Blog

    My 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.

    More kudos.

    First impression of our Cruze's interior: pretty classy. It looks upscale with the two-tone dash, navigation system and metallic trim. For an economy car, the materials used are pretty impressive, with soft-touch in the right places and very little that's shiny plastic. I like the steering wheel, too; it falls right to hand and is ergonomically sound. Chevy would be wise to put this in the Camaro ASAP.
    One of the things that GM gets right in its current crop of contenders is ergonomics, as least as far is it pertains to the center stack.

    The photo above doesn't really do it justice, but the Cruze's stack rests at a relatively generous angle. The tilt of the panel is very driver-centric and makes the controls easier to access and friendlier to use. HVAC buttons and knobs are especially well-placed.

    Seems like a small thing, but for some reason, I really appreciated this detail during my time with the Cruze.
