When I slid behind the wheel of the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze, I could have sworn I was inside a much more expensive car. A lot of that has to do with the incredible interior. And we're talking about a car with a base price of $16,995.
Even without navigation, the wide audio screen, brushed silver accents and well-placed audio buttons are pure eye candy.
To be fair, I should point out the test vehicle is an LTZ model ($22,695) with leather seats, upgraded instrument cluster, leather wrapped steering wheel and steering wheel mounted audio controls. But you get the basic idea of what the interior looks like ... even at a base level. And it's niiiiice.
