2011 Chevrolet Cruze: Handles Like It's On Nails
December 21, 2010
And what does that mean? Nothing really, I just couldn't think of a headline that made sense, so I went with nonsense.
Now that I've got your attention, the Cruze does actually handle quite well. Not in the "rip your favorite freeway on ramp a new one" kind of way. No, it's more like, "wow, this relatively inexpensive sedan actually feels like it has a real suspension" kind of realization.
The Cruze absorbs bumps and potholes with a reassuring firmness that you don't get in a lot of sedans in this class. Mostly they just sound hollow and a bit fragile. The Cruze muffles hard hits and soaks them up like it could take a beating for many years to come. Feels solid, I like it so far.
