2011 Chevrolet Cruze LTZ: Cramming It In
February 07, 2011
Actually, there isn't need to do much in the way of cramming to get a mountain bike into the little Chevy. It slides in nice and easy, thanks to the Cruze's amply-sized trunk, folding rear seat and a legitimate trunk pass-through; meaning, one that allows for more than just a pair of skis.
The latter two are welcome features not found in a lot of sedans, and they're even more important here because of the Cruze's compact size.
Although I admit I have occasionally stuffed a bike into the back seat of a car over the years, I much prefer to flop the rear seat down and make use of the trunk and pass-through whenever possible (far less chance of dirtying up the interior), and I appreciate that Chevy made the Cruze handy in this regard.
