DETROIT: Chevrolet has unveiled its new Cruze, highlighting that it has a class-leading fuel consumption of 5.6l/100km.
Chevrolet claimed the latest Cruze has more horsepower and torque, and is lighter than the previous generation making it more fun to drive.
In a best-case scenario, the Cruze is able to offer up to 917km per tank in highway driving.
The Cruze’s efficiency is rooted in a new, direct-injected 1.4l Ecotec turbo and a leaner architecture, which contributes to a nearly 113kg weight reduction on L, LS and LT trims over previous models. Stop/start technology bolsters efficiency in stop-and-go traffic, helping the Cruze offer an EPA-estimated 7.8l/100km in city driving – a 7-percent increase over previous models.
The Cruze differentiates itself further in the compact car segment with built-in 4G LTE WiFi and connectivity features, including offering new technologies such as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, a more comfortable ride and an athletic, aerodynamically optimised design.
It also offers 10 standard air bags, as well as an expanded range of available adaptive crash-avoidance technologies, including Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist and Forward Collision Alert.
The Cruze range expands in the fall with an all-new hatchback model and the Cruze diesel returns in early 2017.
The Cruze is Chevrolet’s best-selling car around the world, with more than 4 million sold since it went on sale in 2008.
