Its tight, strong structure is key to suppressing noise, vibration and harshness, as well as securing a good crash safety performance and optimal ride with handling properties.
All the controls are nicely placed and easy to use, and thankfully the tacky fake wood and metal has gone, instead replaced with more amiable plastics. Compared to the seats of its predecessor, the main improvements for Chevrolet Cruze are the use of a wire mesh construction to distribute weight more evenly, a firmer foam filling and deeper bolstering for the cushions and seat-backs, front and rear.
As for economy, it’s fairly average when lined up against mainstream rivals, with both petrol versions returning just over 40mpg if driven carefully.
