The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has recently tested a new batch of cars under its more stringent and informative five-star safety rating system, and the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze was one of the best performers of the batch.
With a five stars out of five rating for overall performance, the Cruze also passed the side and front crash safety tests with flying colors, attaining a rating of five for each, according to Consumer Reports. The only category in which the vehicle scored a four was the rollover test. The only car to score a five in all categories so far has been the Honda Accord.
The Cruze is available with crucial modern sfaety features such as stability and traction control, according to Edmunds, and its affordable price tag makes it one of the best cars for bad credit. The vehicle also comes with an MP3 player, satellite radio, optional Bluetooth and great fuel economy for its class. Drivers who are looking to upgrade their current vehicle should find the Cruze affordable with the help of an online car loan.
