Elizabeth City, NC – In today’s automotive marketplace, drivers looking for a particularly comfortable new vehicle don’t have to spend a particularly large sum of money, and they don’t have to sacrifice fuel economy, either. They do, however, need to visit their local Chevy dealerships, since the Bowtie brand recently put two vehicles—the Chevrolet Cruze and the new 2013 Chevy Malibu—on KBB.com’s honor roll of “10 Most Comfortable Cars under $30,000.”
The Cruze earned its prize by “including an acoustic-laminated windshield, triple-layered door seals and wheel-well liners for a quiet cabin. And supportive front seats matched with perhaps the smoothest highway ride in the segment. For compact comfort, the Chevy Cruze is a big winner.”
Further enhancing the car’s comfort are features like hydraulic ride bushings and an isolated engine cradle, both of which help reduce noise, vibration and harshness in the Cruze’s cabin.
Boasting an MSRP that starts at $16,800, the Cruze also is a big winner in the EPA’s fuel-economy ratings. In fact, the Cruze Eco—priced from $19,325—leads its segment in highway fuel efficiency and showcases overall marks of up to 28 mpg city/42 mpg highway/33 mpg combined.
The redesigned 2013 Malibu stood out for KBB.com as a vehicle that offered “the practicality and affordability of a typical midsize sedan along with a roomy, upscale cockpit and a suspension system capable of taming America’s endless supply of dilapidated asphalt.” Notable as well: Chevy claims the much-improved Malibu will be the quietest car the brand has ever sold, thanks to extensive sound-reduction measures and world-class aerodynamics.
Chevy dealers are currently offering the new Malibu in its own 37-mpg Eco model, with an MSRP of $25,235, while the rest of the lineup scheduled to start reaching dealers later this year.
