If you’re looking for information on a newer Chevrolet Cruze, we’ve published an updated review: 2019 Chevrolet Cruze Review
Chevy’s had a hold on the truck game for a long time, but now, it has eyes on the compact-car market. The 2016 Chevrolet Cruze was completely redesigned this year, and we have five reasons it could be right up your alley.
Room to Roam
Yes, it’s technically a compact car, but you wouldn’t know it from the inside. The Cruze has midsize-car-type room and more than sufficient legroom, thanks to Chevy extending the wheelbase and the overall length. Not to mention, the base trim level offers a roomy 14.8-cu ft. trunk.
Coming standard on the Cruze are 15-inch wheels, a rearview camera and Bluetooth. You can really dial it up as the LT trim level has LEDs, optional heated front seats and a sunroof. We like the top-of-the-line Premier trim level, which you can get with heated rear seats and a premium Bose sound system. See the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze models for sale near you
You can step into a Cruze for fewer than $17,000, which is less than most competitors. Even the LS automatic trim level starts under $20,000. When you consider its efficiency, space and premium features, the Cruze is a guaranteed good deal.
Lighter and leaner than before, the Cruze is also aerodynamically designed for efficiency. It returns a remarkable 41 miles per gallon on the highway with the manual and 42 mpg hwy with the automatic. The Premier trim level sees 40 mpg hwy. All around, these are hybrid-type numbers, which is impressive.
Ready for the Road
Chevy gave the Cruze some cool engine options, including a diesel trim level and Cruze Eco. Rest assured, they all provide excellent ride quality. They’re all smart, efficient engine choices that don’t sacrifice performance.
