2009 Chevrolet Cruze


The Chevrolet Cruze is a passenger car segment C of the U.S. manufacturer General Motors has unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in 2008. It is offered for sale in South Korea under the brand Daewoo Lacetti and other markets from the second quarter of 2009 under the Chevrolet and Holden. It replaces the Chevrolet Cobalt as the Chevrolet Optrad, already present in the U.S. and Korea for several years.

More than a car to drive, the Cruze is a car to live. His performance on the road makes a "good granny" obedient, but not pleasing. Its 2.0 diesel engine original VM Motories 150 horsepower but suffers from a severe lack of low end torque, its 320 Nm being available only above 2000 rev / min. One detail particularly disadvantageous that the gearbox five-speed shows a long overpass to reduce consumption. Thus, in the city, evolving on a light throttle at 20 km / h in second gear, sometimes you put the first not to stall. The platform inaugurated by the Cruze will be the basis for many other models of GM, whose future Opel Astra. Healthy and balanced, here it is served by Kumho tires which may grip is surprising, and an ESP ineffective in the fight against understeer.

Obviously, the Cruze gleaning a much higher rating if it was based on tire worthy of the name. Especially with ABS, Isofix rear-seat and six airbags, it has everything to put in trust, including cruise control, headlights and automatic windshield wipers and fog lamps. Too bad also that his ESP from another age gaps just to fight the front end.

Same floor of 17-inch wheels finished in this high LT, Chevrolet offers a comfortable, properly filtering the suspension uneven road surfaces. In addition, habitability is comparable to that of a Mercedes C-Class with even more space to the rear leg room. And standard equipment, already well supplied with basic finishing LS, is enriched by an automatic air conditioning, a radio with steering wheel controls with an auxiliary input and a 6-CD. The driver will easily find "his" driving position thanks to the adjustable steering wheel height and depth, and also benefit from parking sensors to avoid esquinter painting and a bench to transport large 2/3-1/3 objects. And to feel through his jeans a nice heat, it can check the option "leather upholstery and heated front seats" sold just € 1 200.
Neither bonuses nor penalties. The block VCDI the Chevrolet display according to the manufacturer an average consumption of 5.6 l/100 km and CO2 emissions stand at 149 g / km. A result obtained at the expense of accreditation with gear ratios far too long.
