Cruze wins acclaim
The Lordstown-built Chevrolet Cruze has been named the best 2013 compact car for families by U.S. News & World Report magazine.
The news comes just one week after Consumer Reports, in its April issue, recommended three Cruze models to consumers based on crash-test results and improved reliability.
U.S. News & World Report, which in recent years has become known for its ranking and annual reports about American colleges and hospitals, covered 19 categories that highlighted vehicles with the best combination of quality, features and space for families.
Overall, the General Motors Co. garnered the most awards this year, with six of its models, across three brands named winners.
Other GM winners were the Chevrolet Suburban and Traverse, Buick Verano and Lacrosse and the Cadillac Escalade.
