Chevy Cruze Vs Honda Civic

Bradenton, FL drivers agree that the 2012 Chevy Cruze is a very appealing compact sedan. This car has been showered with awards, perhaps the most impressive being an “8.8 out of 10” consumer rating by Kelley Blue Book. The Cruze is available in five trim levels: LS, 1LT, 2LT, LTZ, and Eco. The Eco model gives drivers and EPA estimated 42 mpg highway, which is the best highway mpg of any gas engine in America. The Eco model also benefits from a 1.4L turbocharged engine, six-speed manual transmission with overdrive, 17-inch alloy wheels, and a lower front grill and spoiler which creates a sportier look. All trim levels are a great safety pick, with 10 standard airbags. Though it’s a compact car, the new Cruze still provides 15.4 cubic feet of cargo space. Don’t let it’s affordable price fool you, this Chevy has plenty to offer!
