Car Reviews Praise the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze

The Chevy Cruze has been fully redesigned this year, bringing new levels of sophistication and excitement to the compact sedan segment. The 2016 Chevrolet Cruze reviews are already starting to roll in, and there’s little denying the consensus.

Car and Driver praises its “room interior” and “zippy engine,” while the Car Connection touts its “lighter, leaner, and more fuel-efficient” nature. Topping it off is Edmunds, who has some great stuff to say about how the new Chevy Cruze “cranks up the content and style.” No matter what you’re looking for in your next small sedan, the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze is dressed to impress.

Car and Driver

“The Cruze cuts a distinctive profile with its boldly sculpted lines, featuring a roomy interior and a zippy engine to make it a legitimate contender among compacts.”

The 2016 Chevrolet Cruze will give you the ability to get where you’re going with confidence without spending too much on gas. Every version comes equipped with a turbocharged 1.4L four-cylinder engine that makes 153 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. You’ll have your pick between a six-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmission.

Thanks to a sophisticated powertrain, aerodynamic and lightweight design elements, and an auto stop/start features, the all-new Chevy Cruze can get up to an EPA-estimated 42 mpg highway and 30 mpg city.

The Car Connection

“The 2016 Chevrolet Cruze inches closer to mid-size, while growing lighter, leaner, and more fuel-efficient.”

One of the big changes for the 2016 model year is that the all-new Chevy Cruze is now longer and wider than the model it replaces. While this year’s model is still placed in the compact car segment, it gets a cabin that feels closer to a midsize sedan. This is particularly true for rear seat passengers, who will get a lot more space to stretch out than they had before.

“The redesigned 2016 Chevrolet Cruze cranks up the content and style while remaining affordable and fuel-efficient.”

Chevy has been making a name for itself by adding a lot of sophisticated features for an affordable price. The Cruze remains accessibly priced from $16,620, but this doesn’t keep it from adding a significant amount of sophistication inside the cabin. Every model comes with the OnStar telematics system with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, as well as the Chevy MyLink infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration.

You can also get luxury-level equipment like leather upholstery and heated front and rear seats, as well as a wireless smartphone charging station, a Bose stereo system, and much more. You’ll stay safe thanks to a standard rearview camera and available driver assist features like blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alerts, front and rear parking sensors, and forward collision alerts, lane departure warning, and lane departure intervention.
