The Top 2016 Chevrolet Cruze Redesign Changes

By Sunrise Chevrolet | March 28th, 2016

The compact Chevrolet Cruze instantly became a hit when it debuted in 2009. It’s now entering its second generation and promises to be a better car than it has ever been before. If you’re looking for something affordable and accessible, the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Cruze redesign should leave you excited. Learn about the major changes below. Then plan a trip from Bloomingdale or Glendale Heights to experience them in person at Sunrise Chevrolet.

New Upscale Styling

The 2016 Chevrolet Cruze is longer than the previous model, adding more legroom for back seat passengers. It also sits lower, which gives it a more striking presence. The curves and angles featured in the body design are starker than past designs, which helps set the new Cruze apart from other compact sedans. The interior is similarly improved, with a more upscale feel overall and a sleek new dashboard display.

New Powertrain and Upgraded Perfomrance

Thanks to a whole new powertrain, the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze is more powerful and efficient than it was before. A turbocharged 1.4L four-cylinder engine puts out 153 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque, up from 138 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque. Fuel efficiency is now rated at up to an EPA-estimated 30 mpg city and 42 mpg highway, making this one of the most efficient conventional gas vehicles on the road.

New Features and Technology

A description of the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze redesign would not be complete without mentioning all the fun, functional, and futuristic new features. Available comfort features now include heated rear seats and a heated steering wheel. New technologies include wireless phone charging, an optional eight-inch touchscreen, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay features that give you access to apps on the go. Finally, the new Cruze is safer than ever thanks to available advanced safety tech like blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, and a front collision warning.
