For the Journey, the Destination, & Everything in Between
Cruze has redefined everything a compact car should be with one simple word: more. Chevy knows that just because Cruze is a compact doesn't mean you should get less. That's why it gives you more of everything you need and deserve from efficiency to safety, features to styling.
Designed to fit seamlessly into your ever-evolving life, Cruze is the first car in its class with 10 standard air bags†, and even today, no car in its class offers more. Cruze offers more cargo space, more technology, more connectivity and more miles per gallon with the Cruze Eco. At 4.6 L/100km highway, it’s the best highway mileage of any gas engine in America. Your wallet is going to thank you. Everything you'd expect from a Chevy, in one compact car.
Beauty Meets Compact
The auto industry is not the only one taking notice of the stunning exterior. Centered by the strong, attention-grabbing Chevrolet grille, its swept-back lamps lead the eye across sculpted fenders, around the sides and back again. Bottom line? Don’t be surprised when people stop to admire.
And sure, Cruze leaves a lasting impression with its bold exterior design, but don't forget those curves, lines and angles do more than just please the eye and turn heads. They improve the aerodynamics of Cruze, in the end optimizing fuel efficiency and helping you get the most out of each drop of fuel.
Life Inside a Cruze
It's called a compact, but that just doesn't seem fair to other compact cars. Its cavernous interior not only has more passenger room than Ford Focus sedan and Toyota Corolla, it beats them out with more cargo space too. And Cruze is smart about how to use all that space with 60/40 folding rear seats so you can find the room for larger items. There's even refined touches such as rich colors, bold dials and details like available leather-appointed seats that give Cruze a premium feel.
Enjoy a quieter drive with a triple-sealed laminated windshield, one of 30 acoustical treatments designed to help keep outside noise outside. When you’re inside Cruze, you’re wrapped in amenities uncommon among compact cars.
Sophisticated performance, ride and handling
You want a car that makes the most out of every dollar you put in the gas tank, but without sacrificing performance and handling. To get those results you need to have a pretty impressive engine, and Cruze absolutely does.
The available 1.4L turbocharged engine is designed for fuel 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 on LT, LTZ and Eco automatic models. It's a driving experience that just might surprise you. It sure surprised some of our competitors, especially when AMCI Testing announced that the 2011 Cruze LTZ outcornered the 2011 BMW 328i6 on dry pavement.
Getting the most out of each drop of fuel
With Cruze Eco in our family of vehicles, we're raising the bar of fuel efficiency with an impressive 4.6L/100 KM. It's the best highway mileage of any gasoline engine in America. It's built with you in mind.
Eco holds the rest of the Cruze family to a high standard, and all the models live up to it. Standard 6-speed transmissions, like the manual in Cruze LS, help offer 6.5L/100 KM. Then there's the 6-speed automatic transmission available on LT and standard on LTZ, with the 1.4L turbocharged engine—a performance increase that helps Cruze offer 6.2L/100 KM highway
Tested worldwide, just for you
The Cruze blueprint chose solutions over sacrifices and was fine-tuned in testing all over the world. 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 its paces on some of the best test tracks in the world, including the famed Nürburgring in Germany, a beastly track and proving grounds generally reserved for high-performance or track-ready vehicles.
Cruze is one of the most tested vehicles in Chevrolet history, and that's why we guarantee its quality with a 80,000km/5-year transferable Powertrain Limited Warranty.
Prevention and Protection
Our philosophy is to provide the best protection and the best prevention. Cruze has received high vehicle safety ratings and accolades. The 2012 Cruze is an IIHS 2012 Top Safety Pick and received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In fact, Cruze has more standard safety features than any car in its class, including 10 standard air bags. And with available safety features like a rear vision camera, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Side Blind Zone Alert — features that aren't available on Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla — it sets the bar for safety. Simply put, it’s our “more” approach to safety.
We've equipped Cruze with numerous safety features, including the StabiliTrak® Electronic Stability Control System with Traction Control. On slippery surfaces, StabiliTrak helps you stay the course by detecting the difference between the path being steered and the direction the vehicle is actually traveling. It then uses the brakes and, if necessary, adjusts engine torque to help keep your Cruze on track.
Cruze was the first car in its class with 10 standard airbags, including frontal side-impact and knee air bags for the driver and front passenger, and even today, no car in its class offers more. Cruze further protects with a high-strength steel safety cage and roof crush resistance that outperform the requirements.
Crucial information is sent to the OnStar® command center via the OnStar® Automatic Crash Response system. There, trained Advisors utilize GPS technology to pinpoint your location and can request help be sent right away—even if you're unable to respond. It's part of OnStar® Directions & Connections®, standard for six months.
