Which is better, the Chevrolet Cruze or the Skoda Octavia 0
Neither models are the most popular in the UK but both Chevrolet and Skoda have been on the offensive to bring both to people’s attention.
Chevrolet is one of the best performing car brands in America, playing a pivotal role in helping General Motors become the world’s number one. They are nowhere that standard here in the UK and throughout the rest of Europe. One of their best sellers throughout the world, theCruze is one of their best weapons on the market.
It was first seen here in as a Saloon model. This was marketed as a great value for money vehicle, containing some handy features. This failed to take the market despite its value. The family car market just seemingly wanted more. Chevrolet responded by released a five door hatchback. More importantly a diesel engine was added to the line-up, giving the model a more efficient type of option. This 1.7 litre VCDi is able to produce an almighty 128 BHP. At the same time it is good on emissions and fuel economy too. Overall it is a good all rounder, being powerful and efficient at the same time.
Whilst driving along, it’s quite easy to see just how smooth the engine really is. It is definitely the car’s most attractive feature. The engine power is where the Chevrolet Cruze has the upper hand on the Skoda Octavia.
At the top level, the LTZ trim upon the Cruze offers a fantastic deal. The standard kit is at a very satisfactory level itself but many may be tempted to opt for the greater level of equipment.
Practicality wise, the Skoda Octavia is the better car in terms of boot space. The car is a no nonsense spacious family car which will deliver everything you need. It’s efficient, roomy and comfortable with a sustainable interior.
The brand new generation Skoda Octavia is due for release. It will be shown off at the Geneva Motor Show in 2013. The car will hit showrooms later in the summer of that year. An estate along with a hatchback will be shown off at the event. Like Chevrolet with their Cruze, Skoda is depending on their Octavia model to help boost sales and improve the reputation of the company.
