The first generation Chevrolet Cruze was a very important car for GM. And it`s done its job, as it was head on head with the most popular cars in the world.
To get back on track, Chevrolet is launching a new generation of the Cruze with some impressive fuel economy. According to EPA recent evaluation, the new generation Volt has a highway mileage of 42 mpg.
The Cruze’s EPA-estimated 42-mpg highway rating for L, LS and LT models rivals its competition. It tops competitors such as Focus with a four-cylinder (40 mpg hwy), Nissan Sentra FE (40 mpg hwy), Mazda3 (41 mpg hwy), Hyundai Elantra (37 mpg hwy) and Volkswagen Jetta (40 mpg hwy – non-hybrid). The top-line Cruze Premier offers an EPA-estimated 40 mpg highway.
The Cruze’s efficiency is rooted in a new, direct-injected 1.4 liter Ecotec turbo and a leaner architecture, which contributes to a nearly 250-pound (113 kg) weight reduction on L, LS and LT trims over previous models. Stop/start technology bolsters efficiency in stop-and-go traffic, helping the Cruze offer an EPA-estimated 30 mpg in city driving – a 7-percent increase over previous models.
The most connected car in its class based on built-in 4G LTE WiFi and connectivity features, including offering new technologies such as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, a more comfortable ride.
It also offers 10 standard airbags, as well as an expanded range of available adaptive crash-avoidance technologies, including Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist and Forward Collision Alert.
