Chevrolet Cruze is an affordable high-mileage compact car. It's easy-going, quiet, comfortable and composed. You'll find more choices in a Chevrolet showroom than any competitor's: Cruze comes as a sedan or hatchback, with automatic or manual, gas or diesel.
Both the 2018 Cruz hatch and the sedan are now available with the 1.6-liter turbodiesel engine.
The hatch was new for 2017, after a redesign of the Cruze for 2016. Also new for 2018 is one color, Satin Steel Grey Metallic.
Standard engine in the front-wheel-drive Cruze is a 1.4-liter turbocharged four making 153 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque, which comes with a six-speed automatic or manual. It's EPA-rated at 29/40/33 miles per gallon City/Highway/Combined with the automatic.
The optional 1.6-liter turbodiesel makes less horsepower (137 hp) but way more torque, at 240 lb-ft. It comes with a more sophisticated transmission, as well: a nine-speed automatic.
The turbodiesel mileage competes with the Toyota Prius. The Cruze sedan automatic is rated at 31/47/37, while the manual scores 30/52/37 mpg; that 52 highway could only be explained by a very tall sixth gear in the transmission. That gives the Cruze diesel sedan with the 6-speed manual a 712-mile potential range.
Cruze RS is a sporty appearance package, with special front and rear fascia, spoiler, and 18-inch wheels but no suspension or power changes.
