2013 Chevrolet Cruze Interior review andÂ 2013 Chevrolet Cruze Interior photo
The interiors of other compact cars often illustrate where the automaker chose to cut costs, but the 2013 Chevrolet Cruze’s traditional big-car design with two-tone color schemes looks more upscale than many of the car’s competition. Sure, there are a lot of hard plastic surfaces and we’d like more padding on the armrests, but the application of cloth or leather-look trim to the dash and doors improves both the look and feel. This year’s updated electronics interface is easier to use than last year and also provides additional functionality through the Chevy MyLink system, providing smartphone integration (for apps such as Pandora) and enhanced voice control.
2013 Chevrolet Cruze Like many affordable small cars, is made with some hard plastics, but overall the Cruze has an attractive cabin and when it’s properly equipped, the Cruze seems more expensive than its price suggests. Some Reviewers add that the interior features are easy to use, but they want more legroom for rear passengers. The front seats, however, are spacious.
Most plastics are very lightly padded or hard to the touch, but they are attractive. Cruze’s interior is more aesthetically pleasing than that of most competitors. Leather upholstery is standard on the 2LT and LTZ, which makes the cabin feel even more upscale. Ample use of sound-deadening material makes the 2013 Chevrolet Cruze sedan’s cabin one of the quietest in the segment. In short, the inside had a very appealing feel to it, well above the price structure.
The 2013 Chevrolet Cruze deftly combines responsive handling with a comfortable, compliant ride. The sport suspension on the 2LT and LTZ is firmer but still provides an agreeable ride.Most drivers should be satisfied with either of the Cruze’s engines. The upscale turbocharged engine is pretty average in terms of outright acceleration, but it’s peppier around town thanks to its increased torque. The main issue, however, is the automatic transmission. Programmed for maximum fuel economy, it’s reluctant to downshift for quick acceleration and passing unless you really boot the throttle
