2011 Chevrolet Cruze: Backseat Comfort

December 06, 2010


I was strapping a child safety seat into the Cruze over the weekend and figured I'd see how comfortable the backseat is for me. Pretty comfortable, actually. I'm 5-foot, 10-inches and didn't have any issues with headroom or legroom; I'd say anyone less than 6-feet tall will be fine. The seat cushioning is firm and there's a respectable amount of thigh support and seatback rake.

As with other small sedans, the center seat is for occasional use only; it's hard and perched high up. Also, the floor isn't flat like it is on a Civic. But overall I was pretty pleased and wouldn't mind riding in back for a short or medium-length trip.
