2011 Chevrolet Cruze: Stargazing

February 10, 2011

The Cruze has been on the market for just a few short months but it's making quite the impression. Chevy's ambitious little overachiever cracked the top 10 for the first time last month - with 13,631 units sold, it was the 10th best-selling vehicle in the land for January 2011, in the company of established sales titans like the Honda Civic and Toyota Camry.

Quite an accomplishment. How to explain its rapid rise to the top?

Well, it starts with a quality product, obviously, and on this front, the Cruze certainly delivers - functional and fun, it hits all the required bases and manages to throw in a little something extra. I also think the Cruze has come along at the right moment, presenting a compelling domestic alternative at a time when many people would love to have a reason to buy American.

What's your take as to the factors behind the Cruze's success?
