      I'm totally being serious here...I think it's the best looking current Chevy product.

      in my opinion, yes. I remember yawning my ass off when press pics first came out, but my attitude quickly changed when they started appearing on the roads. Even after being on sale a while, I continue to do a double-take almost every time I see one. They are deceptively good-looking cars, I dunno how GM did it.

      I cross shopped the Cruze RS and my MKVI Jetta. I had the Cruze for a weekend and very much liked how it looked. The lip kit and 17's that come on that model definitely do it for me.

      You don't seem to understand the concept of 'k'. It means thousand so its 50k and 80k not 8000k

      That looks very good indeed, I wasn't even thinking of that model with the big wheels.

      Yes, very good looking exterior. I'm not a fan of the interior though.

      I think it's pretty attractive for what it is. Just proves there's no reason for an economy car to look like, well, an economy car.

      I think it is a good looking car, but I also like the Buick Verano so I may be crazy.

      Not too fond of the fake rear window trim, needs a BMW style kink.

      It did look a lot like GM's Holden Torana 2006 concept when it came out

      Not sure if there is a link there. What I here GM Daewoo design studio was responsible for it so I don't think there was a Holden connection

      The front end is weird, and the taillights look pretty cheap. Otherwise, it's okay.

      North American vehicle desliker here.

      I actually really like the Cruze. The base models (as nearly all other vehicles) is meh, but someone down our road has a Cruse RS... it's remarkably nice! Kinda wished it had a 2.0T AWD variant, and hoping their hatchback version makes it here soon.

      So, yes, Cruze = handsome stud.

      The tail is terrible, but otherwise pretty good.

      Fixed.

      Some people say the Cruze is an old design that doesn't look good anymore, but I disagree. With all these new cars and their bubbly rounded bulbous exteriors.. it's nice to see something that has edges and flat sections along with curves to give it real style. I think the Cruze is one of the freshest designs out there.

      The interior does need some help, but it's not bad considering it's starting out life as a $16k car in base trim.

      Even the Eco looks great. At first the chrome-appearing aluminum rims were a turn off, but I sort of like them now. Hoping to scoop up a Cruze Eco-D (diesel) in early 2013 unless I go a different direction.

      Up until you get beyond the rear doors. Someone also pointed out the wonkiness of the grille which didn't bother me before but now I can't unsee what they're talking about.

      As far as compact sedans go, the Mazda3, Focus, Impreza (!) and Jetta (?!) all trump it in looks.

      Problems with the Cruze grille but not the 3?
