Chevrolet Road Tests

Chevrolet's latest small car improves on the outgoing model in every area, but is that enough to make you choose it?

Despite the protestations of tree huggers, four-wheel-drive cars seem to be breeding at an alarming rate. Not too long ago the Vauxhall Frontera had the ‘Sports Utility Vehicle’ niche pretty much to itself. And if you wanted something bigger you could have a Discovery, a Shogun or a Range Rover.

I first saw the Chevrolet Cruze, a rather pretty Focus-sized car at the Paris Motor Show in October 2008. It’s actually Chevrolet’s new ‘world’ car based on its ‘Delta 2’ platform and competes in WTCC Touring car races. Unusually, it’s available only as a four-door saloon, but a five-door hatch is on the way.

The estate version of the Cruze is a good value alternative to the likes of the latest Hyundai i30 and comes with an impressive 1.7 VCDi diesel engine.

Oddball car, the Chevrolet Epica. Mondeo sized. With a choice of 5-speed manual diesel, 6-speed automatic diesel, or 5-speed manual transverse straight-six petrol. Badged ‘Chevrolet’, yet built in South Korea.

Sponsor of Celebrity Love Island and Chevrolet’s smallest car, the Matiz puts its gloves on against the Panda, the Picanto, the Charade and the newly born Czech triplets C1, 107 and Aygo. To have a fighting chance it has to offer things the others don’t.

With a constantly improving model line-up, the Chevrolet brand is on the up. Does its big MPV continue the trait?

Korean built, Zafira sized MPV on Delta 2 platform with useful chain cam 2.0 diesel engines offering two power outputs.

I confess, I wasn’t particularly looking forward to the Chevrolet Spark. I’d thought it would just be an updated Chevrolet Matiz trying to punch above its weight in the same ring as the Hyundai i10, Suzuki Splash and Vauxhall Agila.
