The Europeans have had one of these pretty much since the Cruze debuted in 2008. Now that GM, like so many other manufacturers today, is developing new “world cars” – that is to say cars that vary little from market to market – it’s our turn to experience what a Cruze hatch can offer. Which, as it turns out, is quite a lot. All manner of tech – from Apple Carplay to heated seats – is offered as standard, as well as sporty 16’” alloy wheels and turbo power. $24,645, meanwhile, gets you a Premier trim with gorgeous nut brown leather seating and interior trim. It’s styled well, the driver position is right on and the 1.4L turbo four-banger is smooth, smooth, smooth.
