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

Packing nearly the same specs as the sedan, the Cruze Hatch throws a bit more cargo space into the mix, with great results.

Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

Put the rear seats down and cargo space expands to more than 47 cubic feet.

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.
