The ground clearance however may seem a bit limited to those wanting to take the car to sub-urban or rough areas. On inside front, the car presents a pleasing picture with a premium looking features studded cabin. Beige interiors are a preferred option in buyers so if Chevrolet could look into including that, it can prove a plus one feature for the car.

The comfort level is good on front and rear seats though absence of a few standard add-ons like height adjustable driver seat, Bluetooth connectivity, keyless entry in its top end model seem a drawback.
