Chevy Cruze & Impala Top Consumer Reports for 2017

Two Chevrolets – the Cruze and Impala – were named tops in their class in the Consumer Reports 2017 Annual Top Picks list, an influential designation for shoppers looking for new cars.

The magazine said the redesigned Chevy Cruze earned top marks in the highly competitive compact car category, beating out the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla, which historically have dominated the top picks list.

“The best way to describe (the Cruze) is they took the Impala and they shrunk it down and have many of the same virtues in a smaller package,” Jake Fisher, Consumer Reports director of automotive testing, said.

“If you look at the competitors, you look at Corollas or any other compact cars, there’s a lot that they could learn from the Cruze in terms of ride, quietness and just a substantial-feeling vehicle, along with having the latest infotainment, which again you can navigate,” Fisher continued. “It’s not overwhelming. It’s well-laid out.”

The Chevrolet Impala was named top large sedan for the third year in row.

“I know when we first said the Chevy Impala was a top pick, there was a lot of confused faces,” Fisher said. “This is not the rental car version. This is the new version that they have which drives like a luxury vehicle, continues to be reliable and it’s just good owner satisfaction. It drives terrific.”
