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
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
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
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
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
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
>opal designed engine
>daweoo designed frame and body
>built in lordstown ohio
If you can wait OP get the actual 2016 model when it comes out.
>153hp vs 138hp
>1.4t is stock
The only con is people will confuse it for a civic.
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
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.
>he believes in the all-american or all-german meme
>that fucking dash cluster, is total shit.
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.
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.
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
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
