The five-passenger 2017 Chevrolet Cruze is the best-selling Chevrolet vehicle in the world thanks to its refined style, advanced technology and affordability.
While the Cruze has traditionally only been sold as a compact sedan in America, Chevy is introducing the new Cruze Hatchback for 2017. With five doors and increased cargo space of 47.2 cubic feet, the Cruze Hatchback is ideal for those with active lifestyles who require extra room. Also new for 2017 is a Teen Driver mode, featuring parental controls to review and encourage safe habits in newer drivers.
The 2017 Chevrolet Cruze Sedan s powered by a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 153 hp and 177 lb/ft of torque. Sending power to the front wheels through either a six-speed manual or an available Hydra-Matic six-speed automatic transmission, the Cruze zips from 0 to 60 mph in 7.7 seconds and delivers impressive maximum fuel economy of 40 mpg when equipped with the six-speed automatic.
While compact cars can be blandly designed, both the Cruze Sedan and Hatchback models offer attractive design both inside and out thanks to a focus on sporty styling and premium-grade materials. This combination gives the Cruze a rare mixture of refinement and sophistication that’s made it a global best-seller. Depending on the trim level you choose, the Cruze is equipped with 16-, 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels; LED daytime running lights; tasteful chrome trim accents; and a prominent chrome grille.
On the inside, a unique arcing dashboard design gives an artistic feel, while leather upholstery, heated front and rear seats, a leather-wrapped and heated steering wheel, a power sunroof and interior ambient lighting add a touch of luxury. Every Cruze model is equipped with the intuitive Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system, with a seven-inch touchscreen standard and an eight-inch touchscreen as an available option. Both systems feature Bluetooth® streaming audio and hands-free phone operation, as well as Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ for a rich smartphone-integrated experience. And unlike many compact car competitors, the Cruze is equipped with OnStar® 4G LTE connectivity for on-the-go WiFi hotspot access.
Despite its status as a five-passenger compact car, the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze offers ample cargo space, with the sedan boasting 14.8 cubic feet in its trunk and hatchback models increasing that number to 24.7 cubic feet with the rear seats in use. Rear seat legroom in both models is also ample at 36.1 inches.
A Rear Vision Camera comes standard on every Cruze model, and buyers can opt for numerous driver assist innovations like Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert, Park Assist, IntelliBeam Automatic High-Beam Control and Lane Departure Warning.
Whether you opt for the sedan or hatchback model, the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze offers world-class refinement, head-turning style, innovative technology, outstanding fuel economy and advanced driver assist features typically associated with pricier mid-size sedans. The Cruze is a value-packed compact vehicle that’s perfectly suited for a wide range of budgets and lifestyles. And thanks to its nimble, sharp handing, the Cruze is a pleasure to drive, so stop in Les Stanford Chevrolet and take one for your own personal cruise.
