Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Chevy Cruze offers lots of compelling reasons to select it, but we’d like to see more safety tech on its standard equipment roster.

Pros
Versatile sedan and hatchback options
Comfy interior with lots of standard tech
Optional turbodiesel is compelling
Refined feel

Cons
Limited safety tech
Diesel is a pricey option
Automatic can be indecisive
Not particularly sporty

The 2018 Chevrolet Cruze ranked #7 in Compact Cars. Currently the Chevrolet Cruze has a score of 8.5 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 35 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Impressive infotainment system and standard features list
Outstanding fuel economy
Spacious seats and trunk
Quiet, comfortable ride

Cons
Sluggish acceleration
Can't deactivate engine stop-start system

By:

The 2018 Chevrolet Cruze is a compact sedan or hatchback.Our recommended trim, the LT, steps up to 16-inch alloy wheels, upgraded headlights with LED running lights, heated mirrors, cruise control, steering-wheel-mounted phone and audio controls, a rear center armrest with cupholders, and a six-speaker audio system with satellite radio. Hatchback models also get a cargo cover and rear spoiler.

PROS
Feels sporty and planted around turns
Touchscreen interface is easy to use
Available diesel-powered engine for high fuel economy

CONS
Front seats aren't particularly comfortable
Engine stop-start cannot be disabled
Gas engine's disappointing acceleration and real-world fuel economy

The S4’s understated looks won’t snap necks on the street, but its 354-hp turbo 3.0-liter V-6 and all-wheel-drive traction can realign your spine on demand. Sorry stick-shift purists, an eight-speed automatic is the sole gearbox. With standard massaging front seats and premium interior materials, the sophisticated sedan also pampers passengers.

Pros
Solid performance,
stealthy road presence,
refined and high-tech cabin.

Cons
Short on engagement behind the wheel,
fierce competitors in the same showroom.

The 2018 Audi S4 balances perfectly performance with luxury in a package that's both practical and sharp. Hardly a recipe for excitement, but one that touches all the bases.

Pros
Sharp exterior
Comfortable in front or back
Plentiful power from V-6
Comfortable ride
Good standard equipement

Cons
Transmission seems hesitant
Finicky optional sport steering
Drama-less?
Missing S5's power dome

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Pros
Strong acceleration
Nimble handling
Well-appointed interior

Cons
Small trunk
Looks too conservative
Clunky start/stop system
