The 2013 Chevrolet Cruze provides the amenities, quietness, safety features, infotainment and roominess expected of a larger sedan, but with the efficiency and value of a compact car.
For 2013, Chevrolet adds infotainment and safety technologies that bring even more value to Cruze. They include the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system, standard on 2LT, Eco and LTZ models and available on 1LT. Two audio systems -- including an AM/FM audio system with GPS-enabled navigation and a 7-inch-diagonal color touch-screen, are also new for 2013.
Cruze also adds an Enhanced Safety Package that offers crash-avoidance technologies such as Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and rear park assist.
Cruze is available in LS, 1LT, 2LT and LTZ models, as well as a gas-sipping Eco model.
Cruze features Chevrolet's global signature face -- a two-tier grille with the gold bowtie logo. An arching roofline connects a steeply raked windshield and fast-sloping rear pillars that provide a sporty, coupe-like proportion.
Inside, the twin-cockpit is matched with high-quality interior materials and exceptional assembly tolerances. Grained, soft-touch components and low-gloss trim panels exude a level of quality uncommon in the segment.
Cruze models are equipped with one of two efficient four-cylinder engines and a choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmissions. Standard on LS models is the 138-horsepower Ecotec 1.8L four-cylinder. Standard on LT, LTZ and Eco models is an Ecotec 1.4L turbo. Also rated at 138 horsepower with 148 lb.-ft. of torque, the Ecotec 1.4L turbo enables a cruising range of more than 500 miles, meaning it can go longer between fill-ups.
