(from Chevrolet Press Release) Chevrolet introduced the all-new 2016 Cruze - a larger and lighter, more efficient and more sophisticated evolution of the brand's best-selling global car.
Packed with new technologies such as available Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and new active safety features, as well as a more spacious interior and an athletic, aerodynamically optimized design, the 2016 Cruze elevates the compact car segment - from San Francisco to Shanghai and from Boston to Buenos Aeries.
It will be offered in more than 40 global markets and goes on sale first in North America in early 2016. A new, standard 1.4L turbocharged engine with direct injection and an SAE-certified 153 horsepower (113 kW) helps enable a General Motors-estimated 40 mpg on the highway with the available six-speed automatic transmission. Stop/start technology helps enhance the Cruze's efficiency in stop-and-go driving.
The new turbo engine and a leaner architecture that reduces up to 250 pounds (113 kg) also contribute to the new Cruze's stronger performance, with expected 0-60-mph acceleration of eight seconds.
"The 2016 Cruze builds on a very successful program that introduced Chevrolet to new customers the world over," said Alan Batey, president, General Motors North America. "We retained all the attributes that made the original Cruze a hit around the globe and built on them to make this car more sophisticated, more fun and more Chevrolet."
Vehicle highlights include:
Next-generation Chevrolet MyLink with smartphone integration capability, including a standard seven-inch-diagonal screen and available eight-inch-diagonal screen (at launch, eight-inch screen only with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto coming later)
New 1.4L turbo engine with direct injection and stop/start technology matched with a standard six-speed manual or available six-speed automatic transmission (North America)
Maximum highway range of 530 miles per tank
All-new, stronger and lighter body structure enhances agility, efficiency and safety - with an approximately 250-pound (113 kg) lower curb weight
Class-leading 106.3-inch (2,700 mm) wheelbase enhances roominess, contributing to greater rear-seat legroom and more rear knee room
Projector headlamps with light-emitting diode (LED) signature lighting - and LED daytime running lamps on uplevel models
More standard features than most competitors' small cars such as 10 air bags, four-wheel disc brakes, rearview camera and available OnStar 4G LTE with Wi-Fi hotspot
New, available features including wireless phone charging, heated rear leather seats and heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel
Available advanced safety features include Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane Keep Assist and Forward Collision Alert
New model range for North America including L, LS, LT and Premier - and a more expressive RS package.
"The new Cruze is truly one of Chevrolet's most global vehicles," said Batey. "With content variations dictated mostly by local market demands, customers in every corner of the globe will enjoy the same fundamental dynamics that are making Chevrolet one of the fastest-growing brands around the world."
In 2017, Chevrolet will introduce a new diesel model for U.S. customers that builds on the success of the current Cruze diesel model.
Wind tunnel-optimized design
The 2016 Cruze's expressive design balances the designers' inspiration and the efficiency-optimizing input of wind tunnel testing - leveraging the aero experience of vehicles including the Volt. The result is one of the sleekest-looking cars in the class, with a 0.29 coefficient of drag - an attribute that contributes directly to a GM-estimated 40 mpg on the highway.
Proportionally, the new Cruze is 2.7 inches (68 mm) longer and nearly an inch (25 mm) shorter in height than the current model, giving it a longer and leaner appearance. A faster windshield rake and a faster-sloping rear profile lend a sportier look to the design, while the rear profile culminates in a standard integral rear spoiler that contributes to the car's aero efficiency.
The sleek profile is complemented by detailed, layered line work in the hood and body-side panels, contributing to an overall impression of muscularity - with an athletic stance enhanced by a longer wheelbase.
"With styling influenced by the acclaimed 2014 Impala and all new Malibu, the 2016 Cruze brings Chevrolet's new, expressive global design language to the small car segment," said John Cafaro, executive director, Chevrolet Design. "The Cruze's approach to proportion and premium details adds to Chevrolet's elevation of craftsmanship, content, quality and a fresh interpretation of an identity that is unmistakably Chevrolet in every market around the world."
