NADAguides.com, renowned among consumers for their in-depth, pre-buy research tools and pricing, has just named the Chevy Cruze "2011 Car of the Year". Among the vehicle attributes NADA (North American Dealer Association) pays extremely close attention to as they assess vehicles are performance, design language, safety technologies and total cost of ownership - essentially all things that matter most to you, the driver.
With an authoritative 138-hp to its name and up to 42 miles per gallon, the Chevy Cruz is a natural winner in terms of performance. Especially with available Z-link rear suspension to seal the deal. The Chevy Cruze LTZ, which comes standard with this piece of engineering genius, can actually out corner the 2011 328i luxury sports car.
As far as design language is concerned, the 2011 Chevy Cruze won the hearts of NADA with its beveled hood, abrupt angles and dynamic-looking fenders and chic interior - all of which set it apart from other vehicles in its class. Safety? We won't bore you with all of the features. Two accolades - IIHS Top Safety Pick and 5-Star Overall Safety rating from the NHTSA - pretty much say it all.
All of this is, of course, topped off by a highly competitive cost of ownership. To sum it all up, Troy Snyder, Director, Product Development, NADAguides says, "This aspirational compact has done phenomenal things for the reemergence of the GM brand in the global marketplace by bringing technology, design and performance to this segment at an elevated level versus its competitors."1
