He adds that the Cruze has a great look, is fun to drive, and is responsive. The Cruze features a quick start button, remote keyless entry system, steering wheel-mounted cruise control and audio controls, USB and Bluetooth connectivity, windshield wipers with automatic control, auto headlamps and a navigating light system.
