Whether rush hour means standstill traffic or going slow, you want to be in a vehicle that is comfortable and one that blocks out all the noise on the road. That's where the 2014 Chevrolet Cruze comes in. What you give up in size with this compact car, you get back in a smooth ride. That will be of great importance if you are stuck in rush-hour traffic morning and night.

Standard in the 1.8-liter, four-cylinder Cruze is a triple-sealed, laminated windshield designed to keep outside noise out. That's only one of the 30 acoustical treatments bestowed on the Cruze.

While the Cruze is a compact car, it boasts more passenger room than the Ford Focus or the Toyota Corolla. While you're sitting in the spacious cabin, you can listen to its AM/FM stereo radio with CD player and MP3 playback six-speaker audio system.
