The 2017 Chevy Cruze hatchback goes on sale soon, and it’s an impressive addition to the Cruze lineup. Thanks to its updated features, it stands out from competitor offerings and looks beautiful on the road.
The Most Stylish Hatchback
The 2017 Cruze hatchback is both stylish and sporty. With its attractive profile that features a small rear spoiler, lines on the hood, and an impeccably sculpted body, sitting behind the wheel will make you feel like the coolest person on the road. Additionally, the four doors make it easy to load and unload both cargo and passengers.
An Engine You Can Rely On
Front wheel drive combines with a 1.4L turbocharged four-cylinder engine — the same engine powering the sedan — under the Cruze hatchback’s hood. It gets 153 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual transmission and a six-speed automatic transmission are both available. The sedan gets 30 miles per gallon city and 42 mpg highway, and experts expect that the Cruze’s gas mileage will be similar with 29 mpg city and 38 mpg highway.
A Roomy Interior
Drop the second row in the 2017 Cruze hatchback for an impressive 47.2 cubic feet of cargo space. That’s enough space to fit your camping gear, a couple of large dogs, your favorite sports equipment, or even a bicycle! The trunk has a liftgate, so you can approach the car with your arms full. When the rear seats are up, your trunk space is a whopping 18.5 cubic feet. That’s definitely enough room for a family road trip. The trunk space doesn’t even impinge on rear leg room; the Cruze hatchback offers 2 inches more than several major competitors.
Impressive Safety Features
The Chevy 2017 Cruze hatchback comes with a solid array of standard safety features, beating the amount that other compact cars offer. Ten airbags come standard, and a high-strength steel safety cage protects you during a collision.
The available safety features are also impressive, such as the Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Keep Assist, Rear Park Assist, and Side Blind Zone Alert. OnStar Automatic Crash Response System and OnStar Advisor are there for you when the unthinkable happens. Parents will love the available Teen Driver safety feature, which stores driver data for parents to review later.
The Latest in Technology
The Cruze hatchback takes its technology cues from the Cruze sedan. The standard MyLink radio is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which allow you to interact with your smartphone via the car’s infotainment system. A 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot is also available, putting the internet at your fingertips. Heated seats in the front and the back, a heated steering wheel, and LED accents on the headlights are other modern touches that make this car special.
With so many fantastic features, you’re probably itching to hop behind the wheel and take a test drive. The 2017 Cruze hatchback is a great car for small families, sporty individuals, pet owners, and those who simply love driving a stylish car.
