2011 Chevrolet Cruze LT Turbo. Small engine and good on gas, but can go when you hit the throttle hard. Six-speed automatic is surprising for this price segment, and so is the quality of all the interior fittings. Fells like a bigger, more expensive car than it is. So far so good.

I like that car, there are some cars in NA that I wish that I saw more often here, although we do get the Cruze I think.

I drive my parent's car:
2005 Mitshubishi Colt 1.1l engine


My fuel consumption record(I could have made it lower but I reached a traffic jam...)

It's NOT a diesel but a petrol car!

beside Renault 5, Peugeot 205 is for me one of the coolest cars ever! i don't know why, but they have kind of carisma

The Cruze has been sold all-over the planet before it even came to NA. Europe and Australia for sure.....under different badging I think.

The 3.6L is one of GM's best engines.

North America is behind when it comes to cars, we are sold watered down versions that the same car in Europe or Asia comes equipped with better things. Like my Mazda6 for example has the fuel consumption info disabled and no AWD option like all do in NA but in Europe they have all that there. Almost all the new GM cars are Opel based and Ford has much nicer cars outside of the US. It's pathetic that a car crazy country like the US has worse cars than most of the world.

I think it's sold as an Opel in Europe, but I'm not sure. I know it's sold as a Holden Cruze in Australia and as a Daewoo in Korea.

I checked it, here it is the Chevrolet Cruze and the Epica's are something else.

Anyway, no cars are sold as Opel in the UK

I don't really understand why Mazda would disable something like fuel consumption info.

No it's a Chevy Cruze in Europe. I think it's daft the GM has two brands in Europe, three if you count Vauxhall (all rebadged Opels). I don't see the point in Chevy being here.

In the UK Chevrolets have a very different image than Vauxhalls, and are seen as being more luxurious

In Hungary Chevrolet is positioned under Opel. I think GM wants Chevrolet to compete with Skoda, and Opel with VW.
