Chevrolet Cruze 2017

The Cruze name was recycled by Chevy from an earlier car manufactured with Suzuki collaboration from 2001 to 2008. The 5-door hatchback variant of the Cruze was first rolled out under the Chevy’s compact car banner in 2011.

The new 2017 Cruze combines technology and efficiency for everyday practicality and weekend fun. The car is aerodynamic and sporty. Interior comforts and ergonomics include heated front and rear seats, 60/40 split-folding rear seats, updated technology featuring a 7-inch diagonal color touch-screen, and a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot.

Optional extras consist of a Bose 9-speaker system, push button start and wireless charging for electronic gadgets. The Focus is fitted with as many as 10 air bags, including frontal and knee for driver and front passenger, and side-impact seat-mounted and roof rail for front and rear outboard seating positions

The car’s standard 1.4-liter turbo engine balances efficiency and power. US retail prices for the manual transmission variant start from $16,620.
