The 2017 Chevrolet Cruz and 2017 Chevrolet Impala earned the honor of being named top cars in their class for 2017 by Consumer Reports. Graded on reliability, owner satisfaction, safety and a 50-point performance evaluation, the Cruze and Impala were named the top compact car and large sedan, respectively.
“If you look at the competitors, you look at Corollas or any other compact cars, there’s a lot that they could learn from the Cruze in terms of ride, quietness and just a substantial-feeling vehicle, along with having the latest infotainment, which again you can navigate. It’s not overwhelming. It’s well-laid out.”Jake Fisher, Consumer Reports director of automotive testing, said.
In regards to the Impala Fisher said “I know when we first said the Chevy Impala was a top pick, there was a lot of confused faces,” Fisher said. “This is not the rental car version. This is the new version that they have which drives like a luxury vehicle, continues to be reliable and it’s just good owner satisfaction. It drives terrific.”
