Chevrolet Cruze: US-Astra mit großem Kofferraum
GMs Version vom Astra missfällt mit zähem Motor und stinkendem Innenraum. Selbst als 15 000-Euro-Schnäppchen ist die Billigversion von zweifelhaften Wert, findet FOCUS-Online-Redakteur Bernhard Santer. http://www.focus.de/auto/videos/klickdown/klickdown-chevy-cruze-us-astra-mit-grossem-kofferraum_vid_13235.html
2011 Chevrolet Cruze Test Drive Impressions
I recently visited the East Coast for a GM sponsored introduction to the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze. In addition to driving the turbo 1.4L Cruze, I was also able to drive the Toyota Corolla S and Honda Civic for comparison. As always, I was very rushed and I apologize for the sloppiness that is my video style. Hopefully you are able to get something from this. A written review will be forthcoming. General Motors covered my expenses to attend this media preview.

Underpinned by the front-wheel drive GM Delta II platform, GM said the Cruze was "developed by a global design and engineering team." This development program spanned over 27 months at a cost of US$4 billion. During this time, 221 GM-built prototypes were tested in Australia (by Holden), Canada, China, South Korea (by GM Daewoo), Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States.
According to GM, the Cruze's body structure is 65 percent high-strength steel. MacPherson struts are utilized in the front suspension with a solid torsion beam axle for the rear, avoiding the costly multi-link independent rear suspension used by some more expensive rivals. However, for the North American market, the Cruze to be produced there from 2010 will utilize the more advanced Watts Z-link rear suspension from the Opel Astra.
Hydraulically-assisted rack and pinion steering gives for a 10.9-metre (36 ft) turning circle. Braking-wise, ventilated front, and solid rear disc brakes are employed, both using piston steel calipers. To counteract noise, vibration, and harshness, engineers have designed the Cruze with an isolated four-point engine mount and implemented sound damping material in areas including the front-of-dashboard panel, luggage compartment, decklid internals, doors, carpet and headlining. Further noise suppression through the use of a triple-layer sealing system in the doors has also been exercised.
