2012 Chevrolet Cruze
2012 Chevrolet Cruze
The Cruze is a dramatic improvement over the Cobalt, which it replaced, but it isn't yet at the top of the highly competitive small-car class, which has recently seen all-new or heavily refreshed cars from Honda (Civic), Hyundai (Elantra), and Ford (Focus) added to its ranks. Where the Cruze really shines is inside. Its cabin is user-friendly, attractive, and finished in quality materials and comes in a close second to that of the class-leading Elantra. Under the hood, the Cruze offers a choice of two engines: a 1.8-liter four-cylinder and a turbocharged 1.4-liter four that produces 138 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque. The 1.4-liter is exclusive to the North American market, and although it's a bit sluggish around town, it moves the Cruze along effortlessly at highway speeds. In all but the Eco model, the 1.4-liter is paired with a six-speed automatic. The Eco and the LS additionally offer six-speed manuals. The Eco version sheds a few pounds with lighter-weight parts (wheels and rear suspension pieces) and options restrictions. It also benefits from low-rolling-resistance tires and aerodynamic aids. To compete with the fuel-economy ratings of its newer competitors, Chevy has managed to eke out another 2 mpg from its turbo engine when paired with the six-speed automatic, for a rating of 26/39 mpg. Although the Cruze has some shortcomings -- soft handling, light but somewhat artificial steering feel, an unrefined automatic transmission -- its excellent interior, quiet highway ride, and supple suspension make it a legitimate contender in the small-car segment.

Just Say No: Study Says Drivers Don't Want Twitter, Facebook in Vehicles
Generation Y may spend most of its time on Twitter and Facebook but that doesn't mean they want social media in their cars. According to a new report, drivers     are most interested in apps more closely related to driving in their vehicles, not potentially distracting ones.

February 2012 Auto Sales
Whereas January proved better than expected -- and expectations were pretty optimistic given that 2011 ended on a high note -- February was practically gangbusters. At the start of the year, most analysts were predicting that sales for 2012 would come in somewhere in the 13 million-unit range. The pace in January was over 14 million. That was good, but February was even better, touching 15 million units. That compares to 12.8 million new cars and trucks sold in 2011. If auto sales can maintain that pace -- and that's a big if -- it would mean the industry has fully recovered from the 2008 crash.

Feature Flick: GM Shows Off Chevrolet Cruze Wagon, Still Not Heading Here
Since the 2012 Geneva Motor Show is just around the corner, General Motors is hard at work teasing the new Chevrolet Cruze Wagon that is set to debut at the Swiss auto show. The video below is a neat look at the attractive compact wagon, but seeing as the Cruze Wagon isn't destined for our shores, it may prove a bit painful to North American wagon lovers. Although the video focuses on the the transformation of the Chevrolet Cruze from sedan to wagon, a few brief clips may hint at the new front-end treatment of the face lifted Cruze. The Cruze wagon's front end and side sheet metal have sharper creases, giving it a strong family resemblance to the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu, and the interior appears more upscale than the current car (which was the first vehicle to start Chevrolet’s interior design revolution). We think the Cruze Wagon would be an interesting addition to the U.S. lineup, especially since Chevrolet has already confirmed a Cruze diesel is coming stateside. Pair the two together, and GM could have a true competitor to the Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen TDI. Unfortunately, the wagon market in the U.S. is a small niche, so the chances of the Cruze wagon coming here are slim. Interestingly, the revised front fascia shown here could hint at a future mid-cycle facelift of the popular Chevrolet Cruze, but a GM representative declined to confirm it as such.
