The Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback is a fat-bottomed, tech-laden, family-friendly machine

It's meant to be a competitor to the Mazda3 hatch, the Focus hatchback and the new Civic hatch.

While it might not be the best driver of the bunch, it packs a hell of a technological punch.

Fuel economy is estimated at 29 mpg city and 38 mpg highway, figures I was able to meet and exceed with ease.
