2018 Chevy Cruze Fuel Efficiency
With the Cruze, outstanding fuel economy means fewer trips to the gas station and more time spent on the road. The efficient 1.4-liter standard turbo engine offers an EPA-estimated 29 MPG in the city and 40 MPG on the highway when linked to the automatic transmission. This 153-horsepower engine feels smooth, sporty and responsive.
The available turbodiesel engine provides an EPA-estimated 30 MPG in the city and 52 MPG on the highway, perfect for long drives when you don’t want anything to stop you. The 137-horsepower turbodiesel engine can be conveniently paired with a six-speed manual or nine-speed automatic transmission.
The 2018 Chevy Cruze offers technology features which keep drivers connected. The standard 7-inch screen display features the Chevrolet MyLink® infotainment system. The crystal-clear graphics, intuitive touchscreen and easy-to-read menus are hallmarks of the MyLink® system. With this system, keep on driving knowing the touchscreen is just a quick tap away from adapting to your needs.
The Cruze offers support for Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, too. With Apple CarPlay™, connect your phone and access maps, music, messaging and calling features right on the touchscreen display. Android Auto™ offers similar capabilities, including access to calendars, playlists and apps like Google Maps, which can aid in navigating to a destination.
Chevy Cruze Safety
Rearview camera comes standard on the Cruze. When backing up, you’ll see a real-time, live image of the area behind the vehicle on your touchscreen display. Backing into a spot or pulling out of a driveway is a smooth maneuver with the camera. No matter where you’re heading, you’ll be doing it safely, too, as the Cruze hatchback and sedan have both received a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating.
Chevrolet’s Teen Driver technology also comes standard. This technology mutes audio until front-seat occupants are buckled in and automatically turns on available safety technologies. This comes in handy if a younger driver or friend borrows the vehicle, letting you set limits on what can be done when they’re driving.
