2011 Chevrolet Cruze: Can Fit a One-Man Camera Crew
January 25, 2011
I know I've mentioned this many times before but my brother, a film editor/videographer, is in the market for a new car, *still*. And he needed help this weekend transporting his video equipment which included lights, sandbags, camera, etc. and had asked that I borrow a big car for the occasion. Problem is I totally forgot about this request and had already signed out our 2011 Chevrolet Cruze. Oops. In any case I figured that since he's looking for a new car that's affordable, midsize, has decent mpg and is quick-ish, he might want to take a look at our Cruze.
"But will all this fit in your car?" he asked me, gesturing to all his video equipment. With the Chevy's fold-down seats, I knew it would. The long bags of lights fit through the folded-down second-row into the cabin. But that blue cart, although placed in the trunk for the picture, would have been crushed had we tried to slam the trunk shut so we just put it in the second row. No biggie.
"Well that's a good selling point...that all my stuff can fit in here," bro said. "Yeah, especially if it's usually just going to be you in this car and you don't have more than one passenger," I replied.
Bro was also impressed by the way the car sounded as I drove as well as its interior materials. "It's surprisingly nice. This is a Chevy?" he asked. Yup.
