Design Performance Technology Safety Test Drive
Sleek and stylish on the outside, the Chevy Cruze Hatchback is sure to attract admiring gazes wherever it goes, and heads are certainly going to turn around Elgin and Schaumburg.
Aerodynamic sculpting is one of the defining characteristics of the Cruze Hatchback’s exterior. The flowing, gleaming, and chiseled appearance is certainly a feast for the eyes, with exterior features that include front fog lamps, standard 16-inch aluminum wheels or 17-inch aluminum wheels on the Premier model, an available power sliding sunroof, a rear spoiler, solar-absorbing windows, heated and power-adjustable exterior mirrors, and more.
On the inside, the Cruze Hatchback is roominess personified, with spacious seating for five and an impressive 47.2 cubic feet of cargo room when the rear seat is lowered.
Distinctive interior features offered onboard the Cruze Hatchback include available ambient lighting, leather-trimmed seats in the Premier model, an available eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, available heated seats for both the front and rear passengers, available keyless entry and keyless start, express-down power windows for the driver and front passenger, standard rear air ducts, and more.
In the area of performance, the impressive Cruze Hatchback features a standard 1.4L DOHC turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with variable valve timing that produces 153 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. The engine can be paired with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Front-Wheel Drive comes standard as does the StabiliTrak electronic stability control system. StabiliTrak helps drivers maintain vehicle control when sudden maneuvers become necessary, especially in conditions of low traction. This system employs a digital steering angle sensor that measures how the motorist wants to turn as well as a solid-state yaw rate sensor that gauges the car’s turning rate, comparing the discrepancy between the direction the vehicle is turning and the direction the driver is steering. If the StabiliTrak system senses that the car is not responding the way it should to the driver’s steering input, then stability control lowers the engine’s torque and precisely applies pressure to the car’s individual front brakes to slow things down and bring the vehicle back to its intended travel path.
In terms of EPA-estimated fuel economy, the Cruze Hatchback offerings are truly superb, ranging between 28 and 29 mpg in the city and between 37 and 38 mpg on the highway.
The Cruze Hatchback also serves up plenty of cutting-edge technology amenities to make the ride more convenient and connected for drivers and passengers.
To enhance in-car entertainment, features like standard SiriusXM Satellite Radio, an available nine-speaker Bose premium sound system, and available Chevrolet MyLink Radio provide prime audio content to keep you entertained out on the road.
The Cruze Hatchback also features amenities like available Navigation to help you find your away around and an available auto-dimming rearview mirror, which helps protect drivers from being blinded and distracted when the high beams from another vehicle hit the interior mirror during night driving.
Convenient steering wheel-mounted controls, which come standard, give drivers easy access to audio and phone functions. Without taking your hands off the wheel, you can change the music in the car, adjust the volume on the audio system, and even answer and end calls through a Bluetooth-connected phone.
A remote vehicle starter system is additionally available for the Cruze Hatchback, letting drivers fire up the car and activate the climate control system, so when they enter the Cruze Hatchback is already comfortable.
In terms of its safety offerings, the Chevy Cruze Hatchback is fully loaded to help protect you and your passengers out on the road.
Teen Driver technology comes standard, letting parents customize vehicle settings to encourage safe motoring habits when a teenager is behind the wheel. Teen Driver can prevent your teen from turning off certain vehicle safety features, mutes the audio system if the front-seat passengers aren’t seat-belted, and delivers warnings when the car is traveling over pre-determined speeds. The system also delivers in-vehicle reports, so moms and dads can keep tabs on their child’s driving habits.
