snooped around the chev dealership, manual turbo RS cruz was circa 25,000$(CND)
am i wrong to like it? i don't like how ST's look and GTI's are out of price range

how can i into fun econobox
>>
Is that a SS?
>>
1.4 turbo isn't crazy powerful
If you want a semi fast econo box find the Buick version with the 2.0 turbo.
RS package is just stickers senpai
But the interior quality is decent and the aftermarket for the 1.4 is growing
>>
>>14308928

sonic RS is better in every way. lighter, cheaper, good handling, better aftermarket. you can tune it up to be up to par with a fiesta ST
>>
>>14308936
RS
they dropped the SS badge for anything other than real performance cars AKA anything rwd because stuff like fwd 5.3 impalas and 2.0 cobalts were "taking it too far"
RS is the 1.4 turbo, with multilink suspension, (i think a better differential) and better brakes, plus skirt and spoiler
>>
>>14308959
op here, i did look at them but they are certainly out of price range
i think i saw a kitted out verano for 35k with the turbo 2.0
Regal GS is nice though, has recaros and brembos
>>
>>14308969
they are tiny (i have a kid and i dont wanna struggle, im used to a malibu), looks worse too
but i will grant you that they are lighter and probably noticeably faster
>>
>>14309001
Are they really 35k in canuckistan dollars?
Shiieet
But the 1.4 can make decent power,some exhaust ,intake and tune seems to gain people 30-60 hp
>>
>>14309017
that's pretty good to me, any idea what reliabilty i could get out of it? i'd keep it for a while <6 years
>>
>>14308928
Nice turbocharged Daewoo Lacetti there OP!
>>
>>14309025
sorry mean more than*
>>14309027
thanks, same car different name i guess
>>
>>14308928
Buy used. You'd be a fool to buy one new and eat the depreciation cost.

would this be a better choice? more power thats for damn sure. not a fan of driving 30mins to get to a dealership tho but it might be worth it
base price seems to be 25k
>>
>>14309066
i do agree, but how used? i want a new car for the new car feel, maybe 25,000km?
>>
>>14309077

yes. out of all new compact cars i can think of the cruze and the dart are the worse ones
>>
Get a Fiesta ST. Its a way way better car. the Cruze RS is more of a "warm" hatch compared to it. I'd get the Kia Forte5 Turbo over a Cruze.
>>
>>14309077
Shit cars with the CVT, palatable with a manual. I'd get a mazda 3

>>14309085
You want a new car feel? Buy good tires and rebuild the suspension (depending on mileage)
>>
>>14309103
the fist is tiny, i need to fit a kid seat in and out easy and i come from a malibu and its just way too small
also ugly as sin in 4 door
but nice cars otherwise tho
>>
>>14309114
6 speed only gearbox im considering

also im weary or kia's even if they are apetizing
>>
>>14309025
With my dads stock 1.4 at 65k thousand miles no mechanical issues
That 65k includes me learning stick on the car,6 1000+ mile road trips,one of which was only after the car had barely turned over 1500miles

Tuned they seem to stay reliable,I don't have a ton of experience there
>>
>>14309207
ok cool!
>>
If I had $25,000 for a "sporty car", a C6 Corvette would be in my driveway real quick. Not a fuckin Chevy Cruz 1.4L Turbo. Not even a Cobalt SS with 260hp.
>>
>>14309292
No problem anon
Also the clutch is light as fuck in these cars
>>
>>14309344
i need a practical car, with room for a kid and can be driven long distances, all year round, maintained cheap, good on gas etc
corvettes are dope they just arent a good DD
>>
>>14309366
Buy a Pontiac G8. I still haven't regretted it.
>>
>>14308928
Good car but incredibly slow and the back seat is tiny.
>>
>>14308928
There is literally no car more boring than a Chevy cruze.
Also gm reliability.
>>
>>14308928
Base gti is in your price range
>>
>>14310705
>gm reliability
The only thing worse could be Daewoo reliability.
Oh wait.
>>
>>14308928
Definitely my favourite econobox. Too bad they don't have leather seats option.

If you can wait OP get the actual 2016 model when it comes out.

The only con is people will confuse it for a civic.

Have a source on that?
>>
>>14310808
No, the fact that Cruze is composed from various GM brands is not a meme (and it's true for any modern Chevry, Corvette, SS and Camaro aside). And the post I was replying to wasn't even talking about that. You should work on your reading comprehension.

The reliability and the boredom is the meme. Well memed :DDDDDD
>>
>>14310823
The same goes for ford, which brought the European focus to the US, and Chrysler.
>>
>>14308928
My mom had a base model one. Its not fast but feels sporty. I dont think you get anything special with the RS. Save some of your monopoly money and just get a non-RS version.

Also, with the Sonic, you will only lose less than an inch of headroom and legroom compared to the Cruze. The cars are very similar in terms of space although the cruze is a lot narrower and has a smaller trunk. The exterior of the Sonic is ok but the interior, that fucking dash cluster, is total shit. It also has the same engine and transmission as the Cruze.

Good luck.

I meant the the sonic is narrower and has a smaller trunk.

RS is only an appearance package. There's literally nothing "sporty" about it. It's a 1.4l engine with a turbo attached to it that's made out of paper mache.

I think it is awesome.

IDK if you can flip the seats down in the cruze, but sonic wins big in cargo capacity with the seats down.
>>
>>14310946
The way its executed is bad. It sits on the steering column, not in the dash and its made of unbelievably cheap plastic. Looks like it belongs on a moped.

You need a Skoda OP. It's basically a GTi but cheaper and more practical.

Oh wait you live in America. Ah too back you get all the shit cars.

ahaha

Skodas total pleb cars. I bet you're one of those ameritards who think Skodas are some sporty quality cars and pretend to be European to give their opinions at least some weight. Or you're a Brit deluded by Skoda's massive long-term marketing campaign in UK.

Only poor people who have to buy the most practical car for the smallest amount of money buy Skodas. There's literally reason to buy that instead of Cruze other than said practicality and design if you're mentally retarded.

>basically a GTi

Funny that. Since Skoda have been winning all sorts of awards in the motoring press across Europe.

Even the Skoda Superb has been likened to a toned down 7 Series or S Class in what it offers but for a fraction of the price. Skoda are seriously putting other European and foreign car manufactures to shame with what they are offering, and the quality of their products for tiny prices.

Simply put Skoda is pretty much the best all round manufacture out there. Even most Americans like it.

I DD A C5Z, take it on long trips, and take it to the drag strip every now and again. If you need space for a kid then sure, it's out, but it's a decently comfy Daily with a nasty amount of power
>>
>>14317263
the whole point of buying new or nearly new is the warranty
>>
>>14309153
Kias are decent now not anything to write home about but they function well as a dd, as for not having enough for a gti look into used ones you should be able to find a decent one for about that price
>>
>>14318218
thats actually a really nice looking car.
