CLEVELAND -- If you love cars, the I-X Center is the place to be.

The Cleveland Auto Show is front and center this week with all the latest and greatest automobiles.

On Monday, three Chevy cars drew the most attention.

The Chevy Cruz, the Chevy Malibu and the Chevy Volt.

All three have unique features that make them some of the best vehicles in their class.

With gas prices soaring to all-time highs, it's no wonder all eyes were on the Chevy Cruz.

"This is the best fuel economy of any gasoline engine car on the market today," said Pat O'Brien, general manager of Pat O'Brien Chevrolet.

The six-speed auto transmission allows the Cruz to reach 38 highway miles-per-gallon.

"It gets great mileage and drives really nice," said Charleen Lalka of Madison.

The Cruz even has ties to northeast Ohio.  It's built right up the road in Lordstown.

"I love the new Cruz," Tom Kaiser of Doylestown said. "When I saw that, I figured Chevrolet had a home run with that."

If you're looking for something just a little bit bigger than the Cruz, the 2013 Malibu may be your thing.

The Malibu has added technology called the e-Assist.

"It's an electric motor that actually helps the gasoline motor which helps it get up to 37 miles-per-gallon on the freeway which is best in class fuel economy for a mid-size vehicle," O'Brien said.

The technology doesn't end there for Chevy.

The Volt, a plug-in hybrid vehicle, can get up to 40+ miles on one charge.

"It's an amazing vehicle that is a game-changer for the whole industry," O'Brien added.

So whether you're looking for a hybrid or a fuel efficient vehicle, Chevy has plenty to offer.

"The one thing that is great about Chevy is that they have a car for just about every budget, as well as every size," said O'Brien.

You can check out these Chevy's as well as all the other vehicles on display at the I-X Center everyday this week.

The doors are open 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Sunday.
