2011 brought a whole lot of new cars from Chevrolet. The guys from General Motors decided that Chevrolet needs to step up its game and invested a bit more in Chevrolet cars and the results did not fail to come up. The small car section and the sedan section are becoming Chevrolet strengths as well. Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic would better watch out, cause there is a new player in town and it’s there to stay: Chevrolet Cruze.
The muscle car section until now has been the reigned by the Ford Mustang, but the 2011 Chevy Camaro gave the Mustang a run for more money than Ford had, overthrowing him. I won’t even mention the improvements suffered by the greatest American performance sports car: Chevrolet Corvette.
TheCarConnection.com reviewed Chevy by styling, performance, quality, safety, features, and green (eco). Let’s see where Chevrolet stands for 2011.
Ok let’s start with the newly born 2011 Chevrolet Cruze that comes as a replacement for the Cobalt. It may not give you feet that burning sensation as if you can’t wait to jump in, but it carefully combines a refined riding quality with an elegant and ease-of-access interior that doesn’t have any wasted space. Talking styling, the Cruze is a bit too conservative on the outside, but it surely makes up for it if you look at it from the inside. The contemporary luxurious look will leave your mouth open. As a performance car it may not be exceedingly fast or fun to drive, but it has outstanding fuel economy which completely makes up for it. Quality and safety are its best assets, since like we’ve stated earlier, the interior is literally “do die for” which the safety systems will prevent at all costs, getting top results in every crash test, and surpassing expectation in every safety test drive.
Let’s kick it with some real muscle with the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro. This is a genuine head turner with blistering power and performance especially the SS trim that literally rocks the car off its body. The only problem is that it’s ONLY a muscle car, completely absent in practicality and comfort. The style of the Camaro may not appeal to everyone but surely they will check out the retro influenced exterior as it blasts by. As for any muscle car, the performance department is where it all counts. Here the Camaro excels with blistering performance coming from strong roaring engines, a high performance steering, handling and the brakes to match them. Quality is bit poorer because of its absent practicality. If you get a Camaro, just hope that you’re not too tall or you won’t drive around more than one passenger because if you do the passengers in the back won’t be happy with the settlement. Safety ratings on the other hand are really high. It’s equipped to protect the drivers from any unexpected events and keep the back seat occupants out of trouble.
Although the base level comes kind of… empty on the inside, the features tend to grow considerably with the trim advancement, finally becoming a potential tech-savvy muscle. Since muscle and green cars don’t exactly match, you won’t find too much eco friendly features in the Camaro.
And finally the 2011 Corvette that needs no other presentation besides the outstanding ratings it got in every department. Styling, let’s be serious who wouldn’t want to even set near a Corvette, not to mention in it? Performance put simple: it’s the ultimate American super car. Quality and safety: even Need For Speed Hot Pursuit 3 places it on top.
