With all the praise for the Chevrolet Cruze sedan, Chevy wanted to see if they could branch out their top model to attract an even bigger audience. Based on all the applause we’d heard for this new body style, we have to say the Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback is a big success. Here are our top three reasons to love the 2017 Chevy Cruze Hatchback:
- The Spacious Interior
Measuring up at 47.2 Cu. Ft. of cargo capacity this beast can handle just about anything you would need to load in there. The rear seats fold down in your typical 40/60 split allowing room for tons of cargo while still bringing an extra passenger where you wouldn’t be able to with a sedan.
- The Impressive Efficiency
To start, the Chevy Cruze sedan is a lightweight gas-sipper so it should be no surprise that adding the hatch to an efficient car means you get an efficient hatchback. The hatchback body style is actually 8 inches shorter and lighter (just barely) than the sedan and when you opt for the manual transmission you’re sure to go far per gallon. The EPA mileage estimates are 28 mpg in the city and 37 on the highway – that’s just one mpg behind the sedan.
- The Smart Features
The Hatchback has available Chevy’s MyLink infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a helpful rearview camera, heated front AND rear seats, Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane Keep Assist, Forward Collision Alert, and OnStar 4G LTE with Wi-Fi hotspot. This list speaks for itself – you’re sure to be entertained on this ride and arrive safely thanks to the ample technology that Chevrolet added to this powerful vehicle.
No matter which feature draws you to this unique car, you’re going to love it. These efficient haulers are available in most showrooms already, see our inventory here. Contact our team today to see about taking one out for a test drive!
