Arching roofline

Chevy design is distinguished with a face – including a two-tier with the iconic Bowtie – that is Chevrolet’s signature around the globe. An arching connects a steeply raked and fast-sloping rear pillars to the car a sporty, coupe-like proportion.

The aesthetic is also seen in headlamp housings that around the corners and sweep in the fenders and sculpted hood, as as a short rear deck found on sport coupes. The are at the corners, too, with front and rear overhangs. All the work cohesively to give an aggressive look that is by a wide, confident-looking stance.

the Cruze is wider and longer most of its competitors. Taut, drawn bodywork conveys while restrained use of exterior enhances the car’s high-quality The overall appearance is one of purposeful

Precision is also seen in the build quality. The Lordstown plant’s body shop was with the latest in body-framing and equipment to optimize the manufacture of a solid body structure. strong structure fosters production variance and repeatable gap of 3 mm or less between most panels.

Interior refinement

bold design cues and to detail continue in the interior, Chevrolet’s hallmark twin-cockpit is matched with high-quality and exceptional assembly tolerances. soft-touch components and low-gloss panels exude a quality is uncommon in the segment.

The instrument is an excellent example of how Cruze expectations of compact cars. It richly detailed instruments are backlit with light-emitting (LED) technology. The LED lights a crisp, ice-blue illumination of the instruments, as well as lighting for interior controls.

A segment-rare standard driver center delivers a wealth of to the vehicle owner.

Blending with the instrument panel is an center stack that the infotainment display, climate and radio controls. Flush-mounted within the center stack a gap tolerance of less than 1 mm, the instrument panel-to-door panel are less than 5 mm. Those are among the best in the class and significantly to the Cruze’s overall of refinement and precision.

Cruze’s and pillar trim exude too. The headliner cover is of a knit material that serves as one of five layers of an designed headliner that make the passenger compartment The interior pillar and other are color- and grain-matched to the headliner, seat inserts are color-matched to the of the instrument panel accent giving the cabin the detailed of larger, upscale sedans.

RS details

Complementing Cruze’s proportions is an optional RS appearance for the LT and LTZ trim levels, which the car’s styling with fascias, rocker moldings, spoiler and fog lamps. An uplevel cluster is also part of the and includes chrome accent in place of the standard silver as well as opaque cluster that allow the cluster’s ice backlighting to shine through – a sporty nighttime appearance.

customers who want even personality and presence in their the RS appearance package builds on the bold face and coupe-like of the Cruze,” said Michael executive director, North Exterior Design.

New, powertrains

Enhanced with its turbocharger, the Cruze’s Ecotec turbo performs like a engine when needed, but the efficiency of a small-displacement four-cylinder in driving conditions. It is standard on LT and LTZ models, with power estimated at 138 horsepower (103 kW) and 148 of torque (200 Nm). the Ecotec 1.4L turbo, fuel efficiency enables a range of more than 500 (800 km), meaning it can go between fill-ups.

Standard on LS models is an Ecotec four-cylinder that offers of the same features of the 1.4L, full variable valve that optimizes performance and economy across the rpm band.

the Cruze’s new four-cylinder engines are manual and automatic transmissions. contributes to Cruze’s excellent economy. Cruze is backed by five-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty – the coverage in America.

Responsive, driving experience

Complementing new powertrains are a strong body and chassis system designed to a responsive and fun driving experience. The structure is tight and stiff; and its enabled engineers to more tune the chassis for comfort and control.

A MacPherson strut is used up front, while a advanced Z-link design is with the rear suspension. innovative rear suspension reduces unwanted noise and allows a comfortable ride and the vehicle’s handling. Compared to a axle, it retains all the advantages of the crank, yet it is lighter and more

It also provides greater camber stiffness, compensates for roll and keeps constant width. In addition, it greatly lateral stability. An additional of the Z-link is that it reduces bush loads and therefore the use of softer bushings.

This is why road noise and isolation are all improved.

StabiliTrak electronic control with rollover traction control and anti-lock is standard. Rack-mounted electric steering is also standard on all It helps save fuel it removes the conventional power pump from the engine’s accessories.

Sixteen-inch wheels are on LS and LT models, with 18-inch wheels standard on LTZ. alloy wheels are available on the 2LT

Along with a responsive experience, the Cruze delivers and refinement on the road. Hydraulic bushings and an isolated engine reduce or eliminate vibration that could otherwise be to the passenger compartment. Similarly, a of noise-reducing and noise-cancelling technologies are throughout the body structure, 30 distinctive acoustical treatments. include:

* The steel front-of-dash is sandwiched between two damping

* Nylon baffles are used in hollow portions of the body and filled with sound-absorbing that expands when the enters the paint oven

* The comprises five layers of fiber acoustic material, a premium woven fabric on the outer layer

* Patches of material are applied strategically the body structure and melt place when the body through the paint oven, the patches to follow the contours of the metal below

* Sound material between rear-body components that is made recycled denim

* The doors triple seals and feature “blankets” that serve as airflow and noise barriers. The are also beta-braced, meaning close with a solid, sound and no resonance.


Cruze offers more safety features than any in its class, each contributing to goal of protecting passengers during and after a crash. The list of standard safety on all models includes:

* Dual-stage air bags

* Roof rail-mounted curtain side air bags help protect the front and rear seating positions

* side-impact air bags (front and

* Front knee air bags

* passenger seat occupant system

* Rollover sensing and system

* Collapsible pedal

* StabiliTrak electronic stability with rollover sensing, control and anti-lock brakes

* safety belts in all five positions

* Safety belt pretensioners and lap pretensioners in the driver and positions

* Safety belt limiters (with pretensioners) in the safety belt retractors

* seat latching system in the seat.

Along with the safety features on all models – a tire pressure monitoring daytime running lamps and headlamps – LTZ models include disc brakes and rear-parking

The Cruze has a strong, unitized structure that incorporates steel (HSS) in key areas to strength and crash protection. It is to help prevent intrusion passenger compartment. The Cruze features underbody main that extend from the of the structure all the way to the rear, further the body’s strength and stiffness.

A cross-structure beam behind the panel anchors some features, while supporting the during side-impact crashes.

The safety development included at GM’s rollover test the only manufacturer-owned rollover facility in North America.

Cruze is equipped with OnStar 9.0 that includes Crash Response and its latest Injury Severity Prediction. feature helps OnStar alert first responders a vehicle crash is likely to caused serious injury to the With Automatic Crash OnStar uses data a collection of built-in vehicle that can signal an advisor for if the vehicle is involved in a moderate to frontal, rear or side-impact regardless of whether an air bag deploys.
