Why do so many people hate Chevrolet

Because they hate expensive: Chevrolet Cruze 1.6 in the test

Body, interior, chassis and handling: wow. What Chevrolet is putting on wheels for 14,999 euros is really new in this price range. Until now I thought that this quality impression, this appealing exterior and interior design as well as such agile chassis are forbidden for cheap cars - this certainty is now also falling apart.

In spite of all sympathy for affordable new cars, there is a deduction in terms of drive: the 1.6-liter engine has real problems around the bottom (it always tried to reach the class target. "), Which is made worse by the manual five-speed gearshift The 1.8-liter gasoline engine does its job much better, but without being completely convincing.

The extensive standard equipment, which is also joined by safety features such as ESP and six airbags, is a pleasure again.
