I said “bye bye” to my Versa for a week and happily accepted the keys to a 2016 Chevrolet Cruze. This is clearly evident in this photo.

This beautiful car has so many cool features but here’s three features that really were my favourites.

1. This tiny pocket that cools down your phone, when the car is running!

2. The fact that the steering wheel will heat up. This is certainly a very cool feature when you live in Canada! Bye bye frozen fingers.

3. The BOSE sound system. OMG!! I generally do not care about such upgrades but this certainly caught my attention….immediately.

4. The technology features- certainly appealed to me. (especially seeing as Im in my car all day long as a sales rep and use way too much data).

5. The fact that I didn’t have to push a button to open the gas tank. I just had to push it and it opened…OLD SCHOOL. This made me smile.

Just in case you want to know the new features for 2016 – here you go:

-a larger lighter design

-all new standard 1.4L turbo engine. Fuel consumption ration of 5.6 L/100 Km

-stop/start technology with automatic transmission enhances fuel efficiency in stop-and-go driving (the story of my life as a sales rep who is on the roads in GTA traffic)

-available Android Auto and Apple Car Play compatibility allows smartphone features to integrate apps wth Chevrolet MyLink (yay..yay..yay)

I will be honest, I have only driven used cars since I started driving at the age of 30. However after driving this car, I swear I would I consider buying a new car. I was totally in love with all these features.

This car certainly is on my radar.

Last week, I had the opportunity to drive a 2013 Hyndai Santa Fe Sport 2.0T  for a week of luxurious, stress-free driving. (the “T” stands for Turbo!).

I was so sad when I had to return it. Look at my sad face!

santa fe - sad faceThere were many things I was sad about when the week ended.  I truly enjoyed taking this car on road trips to Langdon Hall and Hockley Valley Resort. This car was NOT going to sit parked in my garage…I seriously became @momwhodrives.

Specifically I was going to miss many features of this car. Here’s my list of EXACTLY what I sad about.

a) The MASSIVE sun roof. What a difference this made to have so much sunlight streaming into my car.

b) the MASSIVE amount of storage space. It was endless.

c) the hot/cold button that could warm up ALL THE SEATS…even in the back.

d) the CLEAR dashboard. It even showed me a list of near by gas stations when I was low on gas. (without asking..how brilliant).

e) this radar so I wouldn’t hit anything!! Oh my – how I needed this feature when I was on the road as a sales rep for 5 years!

It turns out that one of my friends just bought this car and when I asked her why she bought the Hyunda Santa Fe  2.0T 2013 – she replied “it fit all her needs”.

I couuldn’t agree more. There is a reason the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe 2.0T earned the title of “2013 Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year”, one the country’s highest automotive honour.

Happy Driving
