Cruze challenges conventional compact wisdom with one simple word: more. Its cavernous, quiet interior and beautifully sculpted exterior feel like luxury. Cruze is filled with performance, safety and technology features you won't believe come in a compact. Want more? How about 10 standard air bags(4) and OnStar®(5) Turn-by-Turn Navigation standard for the first six months. And there is still more to the "more."
Over 4 Million Miles of Testing
The Cruze blueprint chose solutions over sacrifices, and then fine-tuned each one over 4 million miles of durability testing. When we wanted to test handling and braking, where better than on the ice and snow of Scandinavia? Cruze proved itself in some hostile environments: continuous driving in the heat of the Arabian Desert, high-altitude in the Alps, intense moisture in Thailand and more. Then it was put through the paces on some of the best test tracks in the world, including the famed Nürburgring in Germany. Cruze is one of the most tested vehicles in Chevrolet history, and that's why we guarantee the quality with a 100,000 mile/5-year Powertrain Warranty(3).
Fuel Saving Technology
Cruze has solutions that most compacts don't offer. One is standard six-speed transmissions, like the manual in Cruze LS that helps offer 26 MPG city and 36 highway(6). Cruze LT and LTZ have a six-speed automatic transmission and the 1.4L turbocharged engine. It's a performance increase that still helps Cruze offer 36 MPG highway(6).
Sophisticated Performance, Ride and Handling
How do you create an efficient car that's fun to drive? It has to start with the engine. The available 1.4L turbocharged engine is the ideal size - small yet powerful - designed for efficiency without compromising performance. It delivers 138 horsepower and accelerates with authority. Cruze takes on tight corners with rack-mounted electric power steering and a race-proven Z-link rear suspension(9). It's a driving experience you might not expect in a compact. And that's the point.
