2015 Chevy Cruze Turbo

This is slick looking vehicle, with such items as an aero package that includes lower front grille air shutter, mid-body aero panels, front fascia air dam and a rear spoiler.

The front seats provide decent support,  driver information center is easy to use, and dashboard controls are logically placed. There are a fair number of cabin storage areas

Steering is quick and precise, with good road feel, and handling is quite good, helped by Stabilitrak-Stability control with traction control. The ride is on the firm side, but is supple and comfortable. The all-disc anti-lock brakes are controlled by a firm pedal without much linear

Interior: standard leather upholstery, air conditioning, driver information center, power driver’s seat, keyless entry, power windows, heated front seats, cruise control, tilt/telescoping steering wheel with controls, 60/40 split folding rear seatbacks, remote power adjustable outside mirrors and two auxiliary power outlets.

Desirable, but costly options, include the $1,345 “Sun and Sound” package with a power sunroof and premium audio system and $790 Enhanced Safety Package with rear parking assist, rear cross traffic and side blind zone alert. There’s also a $495 audio system with a navigation system and an AM/FM/CD player with a 7-inch color touchscreen. A $340 package contains a rear-vision camera.

Price as tested: $29,430
