2016 Chevrolet Cruze Exterior

2016 Chevrolet Cruze Overview (See Available Styles)

  • New redesign for 2016
  • New 153-hp, turbocharged 1.4-liter 4-cylinder engine
  • Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility
The 2016 Chevrolet Cruze compact sedan has been redesigned to be more fuel efficient and slightly roomier inside. Weight has been reduced by 250 pounds mostly due to a lighter body structure. The wheelbase is an inch longer, which increases rear legroom and knee room slightly.

Four trims are available: the L, LS, LT, and Premier.

The Cruze features a new sporty, aggressive front-end, a lower stance, and aerodynamic body lines. Standard features include power side mirrors and 15-inch wheels. The optional RS Package includes sport body styling, fog lights, and a rear spoiler. A power moonroof, LED daytime running lights, heated side mirrors, a rear spoiler, and larger 16-, 17-, or 18-inch wheels are also available.

Powering the Cruze is a new, standard 153-hp, turbocharged 1.4-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive. A 6-speed automatic transmission is also available. Fuel economy for the Cruze trims with a manual transmission is an EPA-estimated 29/41 mpg city/highway. It raises slightly to a 30/42 mpg rating for the LS and LT trims with an automatic. The Premier trim with an automatic gets a 30/40 mpg rating.

Inside, the Cruze comes with a host of standard interior features that would only be optional for other cars in its class. The center console features the standard Chevrolet MyLink multimedia system, which includes a 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, Siri voice recognition, satellite radio, and a USB port. Front bucket seats, push-button start, and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel also come standard. Optional features include an 8-inch touchscreen, leather-trim upholstery, automatic climate control, an integrated navigation system, 4G LTE connectivity with Wi-Fi hotspot, a wireless phone charging station, heated rear seats, an automatic dimming mirror, and a Bose premium audio system.

Standard safety features include 10 airbags, antilock brakes, an electronic stability system, 4-wheel disc brakes, and a backup camera. Blindspot warning, lane departure warning, rear cross traffic alert, lane keep assist, and forward collision alert are available as well.
