Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

Inside the car has a lot in common with other Chevrolet products and, to a certain extent, Vauxhall cars. That's because GM owns both companies. Everything is easy to understand and clearly laid-out. It’s all easy to use too and it should only take a matter of days before you’ve worked out what everything does. The main criticism, however, is the quality of the finish.

The parts of the dashboard don’t meet up and there’s a sizeable gap between the two, while the plastics used do feel a little cheap in places. Even the soft touch material feels hard underneath. The sloping roofline towards the back of the car does mean the rear window isn’t huge. That could cause some problems when it comes to reverse parking.

Things are fairly good with regards to Chevrolet Cruze Station Wagon comfort, though the driver and front passenger are going to have the more relaxed time. The two front seats have good side supports and offer good back support to make longer journeys more palatable. The rear seats feel a little flat and the back of them are rather straight, which is great for improving posture but not so good for a pleasant journey.

Legroom is ok, though smaller children will be better off in the back rather than any tall adults as they may find room gets a little restricted. Wind and road noise are both kept to a minimum. Engine noise on the other hand is quite audible. The diesel engine feels loud at idle and low speeds while the petrol engine becomes particularly strained as you attempt to get it up to higher speeds.
