The Cruze was painstakingly designed to be one of the most efficient vehicles on the road, and in doing so, the 2016 Cruze is not only the most efficient, but also the best looking sedan on the road. Boasting a 0.29 coefficient drag, GM has managed to produce a Cruze that offers an amazing estimated rating of 40 miles per gallon on the highway. It is larger in size than any of the previous models, yet lighter and more aerodynamic with weight reducing architectural elements and a lighter engine. Extraordinarily sleek, Chevy has worked hard to make the Cruze an exceedingly nimble and fun vehicle to drive, with features like a MacPherson strut front suspension system, a mass-efficient chassis system, and rack-mounted electric power steering. The Cruze features an all-new 1.4L turbocharged engine, with 153 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. This 1.4L engine utilizes an aluminum cylinder block and head to optimize efficiency and performance.
Chevrolet has integrated the latest advancements in safety and security when constructing the Cruze, with a stronger body structure and both active and passive features. The Cruze boasts a segment-leading number of airbags, with a total of ten, which include roof rail-mounted head curtain side air bags, and seat-mounted side-impact air bags. Available crash avoidance features include Forward Collision Alerts, Side Blind Zone Alert, Lane Keep Assist, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alerts. Additional features include a tire pressure monitoring system, automatic headlamps, a front passenger seat occupant sensing system, and three-point safety belts.
