Saw this in the "Telegraph" today.

Fed up with cramped family hatchbacks? Fancy a proper, roomy, four-door saloon with a large, secure boot?
I mean a credible, good-looking, affordable workhorse that spans almost five metres, making it longer than bestselling BMW 3-series or Mercedes C-class saloons costing two or three times more.
Until September 30, such a thing is available for less than £10,000. Brand new. It’s the Chevrolet Cruze, which, in terms of pounds per square inch of metal, nothing else on sale in Britain can touch.


The official retail price for the entry-level Cruze 1.6S is £13,395. But, for a few days only, General Motors is officially chopping it by £3,400 (more than 25 per cent) to £9,995 – the same price as a bottom-of-the-range 1.25-litre Ford Fiesta or an 800cc two-seat Smart Fortwo.


£1,000 less than the "cheapest" big car in the world

interior isn't half bad either... don't like the exterior though...
#2
hot wish i had the cash :(
#3
Looks like a good deal, not sure what the car is like though. Would have been interested if i hadn't just bought a Mondeo about 8 months ago.
#4
nice for 10k
#5
wonder where these were build, as some factories in eastern Europe.
#6
shame its still a Daewoo. Look ok for the price though. Saying that id much rather have a 3-4 year old mondeo for that price
#7
1.6 sounds like a tiny engine for a car that size, economic but surely it must be quite slow...bargain for 10k though if you're not bothered about getting anywhere fast.
#8
I expect the reliability and build quality of this would be horrendous

Crap car. You'd be incredibly dumb to buy one given the hideous depreciation.

You can a used BMW 530i / 530d for £10k. No contest.

ICE COLD.

Channel 5's Fifth Gear offers the following overall car ratings

STYLING 4/5
Chevrolet's new design language gets the thumbs up. The twin-port grille and coupe-esque roofline give the Cruze a sporty look, whilst the interior is classy and well finished.

HANDLING 3/5
It's not the most exciting car on the road, but it doesn't do a bad job. It corners competently, although a touch of under steer and body roll can let it down around tighter bends.

COMFORT 4/5
The interior is well-proportioned and the sculpted seats offer good support. It's surprisingly quiet in the cabin too which is a good indicator of build quality. We would happily do considerable mileage in this car.

QUALITY & RELIABILITY 4/5
The Cruze oozes quality, even down to well chosen instruments - including those that have come from the much more expensive Vauxhall Insignia. There shouldn't be any reliability issue to speak of and the use of soft touch materials throughout should mean there's less chance of creaks and rattles.

PERFORMANCE 2/5
Not much to speak of here unfortunately. The higher powered diesel unit offers the most punch, reaching 62mph in 8.2 seconds. The 1.8 petrol is disappointing for all of its 140bhp and needs revving to get the best out of it.

ROOMINESS 3/5
Space in this car is certainly on a par with the rest of the segment, with decent head and legroom in the rear. The boot is also an adequate size, but the sedan design lacks the loading practicalities of a hatchback.

STEREO / SAT NAV 3/5
In LT spec the Cruze comes with an upgraded high-output stereo which sounds decent. Sat nav is available as an option too.

RUNNING COSTS 3/5
The Cruze should be realitively cheap to run with both petrol models boasting a combined fuel consumption figure of around 41.5mpg - although this is likely to be nearer 30mpg in real world driving. The diesels should manage around 50mpg though.

VALUE FOR MONEY 5/5
There's no shying away from the fact that the Cruze is exceptional value for money. Equipment levels are good - even on the basic model - and the overall quality and finish is befitting of a much more expensive car.

ENVIRONMENT 2/2
With most models around 150 g/km of CO2, environmental performance is pretty poor - you can do a lot better in this class.

Personally I'd be worried about the 2/5 rating for performance

Voting hot - just because you can buy a used car cheaper doesn't make this a cold deal....
#12
buy a honda civic/accord, would be more reliable and cheaper even if it is a few years old
#13
Looks very nice, I would have one.

5 year promise too = 5 year warranty, servicing etc
#14
If you spend your £10k on a "bottom-of-the-range 1.25-litre Ford Fiesta or an 800cc two-seat Smart Fortwo" you'll almost certainly get much more when you come to sell it then you will for this heap of metal!
#15
**** car. Fast depreciation. 10k is alot of mony to waste on rubbish. I paid 8k for a 2nd hand BMW and would take that anyday over a new Chevriolet. Plus it will be worth more in 3 yrs time.

Remember 2 things:
You get for what you pay for
Why is it reduced by 25%???? Rubbish maybe?

agree no contest but the bmw would be old/high mileage @ £10K...unless you stretch to £15K


as for the chevvy...hideous but i guess alot of car for the money.....but id rather buy a 2nd hand bmw or audi or even vw (i sat in the bmw 320es recently, wasnt impressed - dull to sit in and drive...in fact coma inducing...sat in the scirocco R, not that was nice...but £31K for a VW are you mad! or the Golf R with loads of options £39K wtf!!)

Good point, I bet they need to shift stock badly.

"I mean a credible, good-looking, affordable workhorse that spans almost five metres, making it longer than bestselling BMW 3-series or Mercedes C-class saloons costing two or three times more."

Given petrol around here is 111.9 atm (which is cheap compared to some places), how about getting something smaller that will get better economy AND would be quicker with the same sized or even smaller engine.

Ill stick to my skoda :-)

Yes the 1.6 seems to get poor reviews. It has no alloys or air-con either. 0-60 12.5 sec :(

You can get a delivery mileage Focus 1.8 Style 5dr for £9999 from motorpoint.

Believe it or not some people buy cars just as a means of transport, not a fashion accessory, not an asset to be traded, but something to get a family from a to b.

This is a lot of car for the money buy it run it into the ground and in 10 years get another one...

Strange that Chevrolet is getting the snobs out in force on here, they are just the American division of General Motors after all, don't see people voting Astra's cold on here.

I like it. great u want to buy a new car and keep it a long time. I have had a daewoo and if u look after them they are well worth it.

Looks nice for people on a budget, what more could they ask for their 10K.

Decent price for someone that just wants a new large car for getting from A to B with no other requirements.

Surely must have A/C? Haven't seen any cars this size for years without it standard. Focus is a very good price though, that's a better buy than this.

EDIT: Checked and manual air conditioning is standard with this model, as I say no car this size in this day and age wouldn't have it.

manual aircon lol....what wind down windows you mean
#38

And your point is? It's an estate not a saloon & nearly twice the price of this offer!!

No... it means no climate control (i.e. set a temp and the car keeps it that way) - manual air con is where you have the hot/cold switch/dial thing where you pick the "temp" of the air coming out rather than tell the car to automatically keep the car at a certain temp.
