2011 Chevy Cruze ECO Review

Bullz-Eye.com breaks down the 2011 Chevy Cruze ECO inside and out. Check out what they had to say.

General Motors has a long history of trying to build the “right” small car, but many of those nameplates that didn’t make it for all sorts of reasons.

All of a sudden, GM is back in the game. We drove a 2011 Chevrolet Cruze for a week for this review and, as always, we give it to you straight.

Exterior
First impressions are extremely important with any new product and, although the 2011 Chevy Cruze isn’t going to “wow” anyone, the Cruze shouldn’t offend anyone either.

The Cruze Eco has some distinct exterior enhancements that are aimed at achieving the best fuel economy possible while adding to the Cruze’s exterior appeal. After numerous hours in wind tunnel testing, GM designed “a lower front grille air shutter that closes at higher speeds to reduce aerodynamic drag and opens at lower speeds to optimize engine-cooling airflow. Another contributor to reduced drag is the use of ultra-low rolling resistance 17-inch Goodyear tires (used with lightweight wheels), which are also used on the Volt.” The front end of the Chevy Cruze has more than a hint of the current Malibu, with aerodynamic front headlights , moving toward more traditional lighting and a spoiler on the rear of the vehicle. The beveled hood, sculpted fenders and muscular fenders give the Cruze a more refined look than many competitors in this segment.
