2017 Chevrolet Cruze Owner's Manual
The Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback is a front-wheel drive Class C hatchback. The second-generation model premiered at the Detroit Motor Show in January 2016.
The second generation of the Chevrolet Cruze hatchback is aimed at a young audience of drivers who prefer bright, modern style. Thus, Chevrolet designers have worked thoroughly on the body lines, providing a more expressive silhouette. The car has a rather aggressive “look” thanks to the narrowed headlights with LED filling, modified radiator grille and fog lamps. The rear end features a hexagonal window facing the luggage compartment lid, flat headlights, and a ‘sporty’ bumper.
The interior of Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback has quality materials, good ergonomics and modern design. The chrome trim inserts and contrast stitching add to the refinement. The 2017 Cruze is mainly equipped with a different central ‘torpedo’ architecture, a redesigned steering wheel as well as an upgraded instrument cluster with a 4.2-inch colour information display. The model comes standard with a state-of-the-art MyLink infotainment system with a 7-inch screen (8-inch is optional), which supports iOS and Android. The rich equipment can be equipped with OnStar 4G LTE for internet access, wireless phone charging, heated steering wheel and rear sofas etc. Safety is handled by Electronic Brake-force Distribution, StabiliTrak Stability Assist, a rearview camera, blind spot monitoring system, adaptive cruise control, keyless entry, ten airbags, rain and light sensors, and more.
Built on General Motors’ D2XX platform, the Chevrolet Cruze hatchback is lighter and stronger than its predecessor. As before, the suspension consists of MacPherson-type independent front struts and a semi-dependent H-beam rear structure.
The engine range of the Chevrolet Cruze consists of a 1.4-liter turbocharged petrol unit with 153 horsepower and 240 Nm of peak torque, and a 1.6-liter turbodiesel with 137 horsepower and 325 Nm. These can be combined with either a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic.
Even if Chevrolet’s vehicle exterior designers don’t go for it, favoring simplicity – you’ll still be thrilled, as happened with the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze. Yes, its arsenal lacks combinations of bright colors and other things that might impress customers, but is it necessary? Has the classic ever gone out of style? I doubt the answer will be yes, and that clearly goes for the Cruze model. It’ll serve you well for years to come, with all the comfort features you need. The sleek, smooth lines of the exterior hold the passerby’s eye, and sophistication is achieved at the expense of miniature size.
Despite modest interior upgrades, the exterior of the new 2017 Cruze is really on point: streamlined contours and stylish fog lights.
Competitors: Hyundai Solaris and Audi C4. The first competitor has a modern attractive appearance, but looks more modest than the Cruze, and the second competitor is slightly ahead of the Cruze in terms of build quality.
