Wow, as a mom of two there is a lot of shuffling around all the time. That doesn’t even include the acting and modeling auditions that they need to be shuttled to and from. But it does include dance, and piano and groceries and moms are on the go go go. Chevrolet that it would be a good idea for me to put the fuel-efficient 2014 Cruze Eco to the mom go go go test.
Centered by the strong, attention-grabbing grille, its swept-back lamps lead the eye across sculpted fenders, around the sides and back again. And don’t forget that those curves, lines and angles do more than just please the eye and turn heads. They improve aerodynamics; in the end optimizing fuel efficiency† and helping you get the most out every gallon. And I got the most out of every gallon.
The Chevrolet Cruze Eco was dropped off on a Thursday and we drove it in the sun in the rain and to the grocery store and home. We drove to the park and to piano and to dance class. We drove and drove and drove and it was only around town errands that every mom and dad do on a daily basis.
It drives very different from my current car. The gas pedal responds differently but I can say that it has some power. This car has go go go juice and the kids liked it. I was really tempted to do circle eights in the church parking lot one day with them but I let my self conscience get the best of me.
One draw back is the back seat buckles, the latches don’t pull out at all so the kids had a hard time buckling their seats by themselves and it’s a pain for me to have to help both of them. At age six and seven I’ve really enjoyed their self reliance when it comes to the car.
With advanced aerodynamics and a 1.4L turbocharged engine, it gives you advanced fuel efficiency without sacrificing performance. Cruze Eco delivers 138 horsepower with 148 lb.-ft. of torque and accelerates with authority.
