2011 Chevrolet Cruze: Sunset Photo Op

September 14, 2011

It seems whenever Mother Nature provides us with a photo opportunity, we're always driving the Chevy Cruze. This time we caught sunset in the South Bay. The soft pastel sky complemented the white Cruze.

Yes, there are prettier cars in our long-term fleet, but this is the one I happened to be driving. It has a rather nice profile, no? Tonight, I'll be driving our Kia Optima, whose bright blue paint would have clashed with the softness of this sky.

On another note, after spending months in Death Valley for our fuel economy tests, the Cruze has a strong dry, earthy stench. It smells like tumbleweeds and scorpion breath. Not that I know what a scorpion smells like, but you get the point. I tried to let the sea air sweeten its interior last night, but it didn't really help.
