2019 Chevrolet Cruze

What We Like

Handsome styling; large interior with superior materials; impressive array of technology; peppy 4-cylinder offers great gas mileage; the diesel offers even better economy

What We Don't

Interior still not as large as in some rivals; steering feels a little numb; standard engine lags behind competitors in horsepower; no L or LS trim for hatchback

What's New in the 2019 Chevrolet Cruze?

Changes to the 2019 Chevy Cruze are minor, but worth noting. The Cruze gets revised front and rear styling, some new wheel designs and a 7-in touchscreen radio as standard. The manual transmission option is no more. Some of Cruze's more upscale options like navigation and a heated rear seat are also removed. See the 2019 Chevrolet Cruze models for sale near you

Which Cruze is the Best?

If we were getting a Cruze, we'd choose an LT with the Convenience package and a few safety options. For around $25,000, you'll have a well-equipped small car with a standout design, an upscale interior and an impressive array of convenience and safety technologies. If fuel economy is a priority, the Diesel is worth a look, although the $3,000 premium over its gasoline-powered sibling might be hard to justify. Find a Chevrolet Cruze for sale

2019 Chevrolet Cruze vs the competition

2019 Honda Civic -- The Civic is among the best models in this class, touting standout styling, a high-class interior, a lot of the latest equipment and features, and impressive interior room.

2019 Hyundai Elantra -- The Elantra earns a spot near the top of the class thanks to a handsome look, a smooth, comfortable ride, a long list of high-tech features and a reassuring 10-year/100,000-mile warranty.

2019 Mazda3 -- The spry Mazda3 is all new this year, with an advanced design, cutting edge technology and the option of all-wheel drive.

Used Chevrolet Malibu -- If you like the Cruze's design and technology, you might also want to consider Chevrolet's latest Malibu, which features more of the same in a larger package. It's pricier than the Cruze, though, which means you may want to consider a used model.
