2017 Chevrolet Cruze Overview (See Available Styles)

  • New 5-door hatchback model
  • Available RS Package for appearance and handling enhancements
  • Standard MyLink multimedia system with 7-inch touchscreen
The 2017 Chevrolet Cruze is a city-friendly, compact car that comes as a sedan or a 5-door hatchback. It competes with the Ford Focus, Mazda3, and Hyundai Elantra. This year, Chevrolet added the hatchback version for more convenient storage space.

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

Both the Cruze sedan and hatchback have a sporty, geometric front-end, a lower stance, and slightly muscular body lines at the sides and rear. The roofline has a subtle sweep from front to rear for better aerodynamics. Chrome accents adorn the exterior, giving it a more premium lock. The optional RS Package includes sporty styling, fog lights, and a rear spoiler. A power moonroof, automatic project-beam headlights, LED daytime running lights, heated side mirrors, a rear spoiler, and larger 16-, 17-, or 18-inch aluminum wheels are also available. Power side mirrors and 15-inch wheels come standard.

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

Inside, the Cruze has a standard sporty, black cloth interior with a 60/40 split-folding rear seat. The hatchback version has maximum cargo capacity of 47.2 cubic feet with the rear seat folded down. The center stack 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. It can be upgraded with a larger 8-inch touchscreen, an integrated navigation system, 4G LTE connectivity with Wi-Fi hotspot, and a Bose premium audio system. Front bucket seats, push-button start, and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel come standard. Optional features include leather-trim upholstery, automatic climate control, a wireless phone charging station, heated rear seats, and an automatic dimming rearview mirror.

Standard safety features include 4-wheel disc brakes, a backup camera, and a tire pressure monitoring system. A blindspot monitoring system, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, and forward collision warning are available as well.
