About Chevrolet Cruze

The 2nd-generation Chevrolet Cruze enters its second year of sales with a new body shape added to the mix: a sharp-looking 5-door hatchback, poised to go head-to-head with the likes of the Kia Forte5, Ford Focus hatchback, Hyundai Elantra GT and, of course, the Volkswagen Golf. The Cruze hatchback adds expanded cargo space and Euro-cool styling to a package that was already pretty appealing to begin with. Among its many features are its Wi-Fi access, 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline engine that achieves at least 40 mpg on the highway, and a new diesel that gets an EPA-certified 52 mpg on the highway. There's also, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and more. It's a compact-sedan-and-hatchback combo that's a strong alternative to the Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra and other class leaders.

"I researched for months, what kind of car I was going to buy and this car beat them all! My Cruze has a black exterior, black cloth interior, and chrome detailing. It has wifi, Bluetooth, SiriusXM, heated seats, power accessories, keyless entry, and I can manage all of my cars health details on the Chevy App!!!! I am a techy kind of girl and always look for the best efficiency techniques. It could use a bit more power in the engine, but its nothing that has ever set me back. Sadly, I have to sell the car because I cannot afford the payments. This car NEVER let me down. It was the only thing in my life that hasnt let me down. Gah! I wish I didnt have to sell it....."
