Seven Reasons Chevy Cruze Is Best In ClassAndroid Auto May 25th, 2016
The all-new Chevy Cruze is here and it’s better than ever before. With a new chassis, new engine and new technology it’s leaps and bounds ahead of the pack. Here’s seven reasons why the new Cruze isn’t just the best-ever Cruze…it’s the best vehicle in its class!
1) A HUGE touchscreen on EVERY model
No matter which model you choose Cruze comes standard with a 7-inch colour MyLink touchscreen display. Simple to use, clear and bright, the large screen puts everything right at your fingertips!
Competitors w/7-Inch Touchscreen:
– Hyundai Elantra GL, Civic LX , Corolla SE, Mazda3 GS
– Corolla LE, Focus SE
And it gets WAY better when you add in…
2) Next-Gen Connectivity with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto
Ever wish whatever’s on your phone could be mirrored in your car!? Now it can with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto! Send & receive texts, play music, use apps and more using SiRi voice recognition technology!
Competitors w/Apple CarPlay & Android Auto:
Civic LX, Elantra GL (Android Auto ONLY)
Competitors w/out Apple CarPlay & Android Auto:
Mazda3 GS, Corolla LE, Focus SE
3) A powerful engine that’s GREAT on gas
A great engine balances power and efficiency and the new 1.4L turbocharged engine in the Cruze (153hp & 177lb-ft of torque) provides the perfect combination. With fuel-saving tech like direct injection and start-stop technology Cruze achieves a remarkable combined 6.8L/100km (42 MPG)!!
Competitor’s comparable power & efficiency:
Hyundai Elantra GL – 147hp/132lb-ft & 7.4L/100km (combined)
Civic LX – 158hp/138lb-ft & 6.9L/100km
Mazda3 GS – 155hp & 150lb-ft & 7.3L/100km
Corolla LE – 132hp & 128lb-ft & 7.6L/100km
Focus SE – 160hp & 128lb-ft & 6.7L/100km
4) Luxury features you don’t expect!
Step up to the top-of-the-line Premiere model (replacing the LTZ trim level) for just $25,595 and you’ll get a breadth of luxury options unseen for under 30k. Heated, power leather seats with a heated steering wheel, passive entry/push-button start and 17-inch five-spoke aluminum wheels. Plus, with an available sunroof, heated rear seats, 9-speaker Bose premium sound system, larger 8-inch touchscreen and wireless phone charging you’ll Cruuuze in complete comfort.
5) More features, but costs LESS than before
Chalk it up to wizardry, smart design, advances in manufacturing or all three, but the new Cruze is actually less expensive than the outgoing model!! Each model has shaved hundreds or even thousands off the price of its replacement. Here’s how much you’ll save with each model:
Cruze L – ($180)
Cruze LS – ($30)
Cruze LT w/manual transmission – ($520), or Cruze LT w/automatic trans. & RS Pack – ($2,240)
Cruze Premiere – ($3,500)
6) Safety First (Or sixth in this case…)
Just like the outgoing Chevy Cruze, the new model offers many best-in-class safety features like ten standard airbags (Corolla LE is closest with 8) and four-wheel disc brakes on all four corners (Mazda3 GS is the lone competitor to offer all four), Duralife brake finish that can double brake durability and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (Focus SE is the only competitor to offer it)
7) Heated Seats on LT models!!!
In creating the new Chevy Cruze GM engineers listened to feedback from current owners. One of their biggest issues? Heated seats did not come as standard on the LT model!
And now, thanks to your feedback, the Cruze LT comes standard with powerful three-stage heated seats that warm up a flash – perfect for our cold Canadian winters! You wanted heated seats…you got ‘em!
You’ve read the reviews…now come and take a spin!
