While Buick made headlines last year for being the first American brand to place in the top three of Consumer Reports’ annual reliability ratings, Chevrolet is earning a headline of its own.
Consumer Reports has bestowed the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze as the number one compact car on sale today, upsetting longtime first place finishers from Toyota, Honda and others. CR praised the 2017 Cruze in both sedan and hatchback forms for smooth operation and fuel economy, outdoing the Honda Civic, Ford Focus, Toyota Corolla and more.
However, not one, but two Chevrolet made their way to the top spot. The 2017 Chevrolet Impala was also awarded the number spot in the best large sedan category for the third year in a row.
With Chevrolet’s two top spots, in marks the first time in CR’s 25-year history that Chevrolet has swept two categories.
