The Chevrolet Cruze is a compact sedan competing with the Ford Focus, the Honda Civic and the Toyota Corolla, among others. It's a crowded segment, and any car looking to stand out needs to bring its A game. The Cruze does just that, with a class-leading wheelbase to improve interior room and a bevy of available features, including upmarket luxury items like heated seats. A new generation of MyLink smartphone integration is also standard, displaying through a seven-inch color screen mounted on the dashboard.

Introduction

The 2017 Chevrolet Cruze compact comes in two body styles, sedan and hatchback, all made in the U.S. This second-generation version was launched as a 2016 model. All-new for 2016, the Cruze sedan carries over to the 2017 model year unchanged.

New for 2017: Chevrolet Cruz Hatch.

Cruze was in the news when then-president-elect Donald Trump tweeted that General Motors was building them in Mexico and importing them over the border. In 2016, GM built 188,876 Cruze sedans, 8400 of which were built in Mexico, or about 4.4 percent. The 95.6 percent were built in Lordstown, Ohio. GM said that all Cruze models built in Mexico were intended for global sales, but then they brought some into the U.S. to meet unexpectedly strong demand. But the controversy flared in the first place because GM laid off 1200 workers at the Lordstown plant, saying the Cruze wasn’t selling well enough. The paradox might lie in the reality of the car business running hot and cold, and the issue of lag time. The demand was then, the layoff is now.

For 2017, Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback was added and is being built in Lordstown, Ohio. GM says it won’t import any more sedans from Mexico. So the bottom line is that the 2017 Cruze is made in America.

The front-wheel-drive Cruze is powered by a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine making 153 horsepower, with a 6-speed manual transmission in the base model and 6-speed automatic in most models.

The 2017 Cruze sedan with automatic gets an EPA-rated 30 miles per gallon City, 40 mpg Highway, or 34 Combined; it’s rated 31 mpg Combined with the manual. The 2017 Cruze hatchback is rated 29/38/32 mpg. That’s nearly the same as the Honda Civic, and a bit better than the Toyota Corolla.

The NHTSA hasn’t crash-tested the Cruze, and the IIHS has only done a couple of tests, with the top Good scores in side impact and moderate front overlap. All Cruzes come standard with 10 airbags and a rearview camera, as well as electronic stability control.

(For 2018, a diesel engine will be available.)

Lineup

The 2017 Chevy Cruze comes in L, LS, LT, and Premier trim levels, and is available in sedan and hatch versions. All are front-wheel drive and powered by the 1.4-liter turbocharged engine.

Cruze L sedan ($16,975) is the base model with manual transmission, cloth upholstery, and 15-inch steel wheels with plastic hubcaps, but it still comes with rearview camera, 10 airbags, 7.0-inch touchscreen with infotainment, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, 60/40 split folding rear seat. Cruze LS upgrades with air conditioning and offers the choice of an automatic transmission. (All prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

Cruze LT sedan ($20,150) and Cruze LT Hatch ($21,240) add a six-speaker sound system with available satellite radio, steering wheel controls, 16-inch wheels, foglamps, and a space-saver spare tire rather than a tire repair kit. Cruze Premier sedan ($23,475) and Hatch ($23,945) are loaded with leather, heated steering wheel and rear seats, upgraded rear suspension, and 17-inch wheels.

The RS package for LT ($695) and Premier ($995) models adds sporty front and rear fascia, spoiler, and 18-inch wheels. Other packages include infotainment and sound upgrades, safety equipment, such as blind-spot monitors with rear cross-traffic alert, active lane control, forward collision alert, and automatic headlights. Automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control are not available.

Walkaround

The Cruze sedan is longer and wider than most compacts, with a wedge shape that leads to a short rear deck. It has the same grille as the Chevy Volt, Malibu, and Impala.

Though they share the same wheelbase, the Hatch is eight inches shorter overall, all of the loss coming behind the rear doors. The roof curves back to a spoiler over the back glass in the fifth-door hatch that’s a bit small.

Interior

The cabin is modern without being too digital. It’s similar to the high-tech Volt, with relatively simple instrumentation in a pod, outlined in chrome, and intuitive controls. The layout is clean and sharp. In the center of the dash there’s a stand 7.0-inch or 8.0-inch touchscreen. Two-tone trim on the higher models. The front seats are comfortable, with better bolstering in the leather seats than cloth.

For a compact car, the Cruze sedan is very spacious. By the tape measure, it looks like a midsize car. It holds four adults as advertised, with more leg and hip room in the rear seat than rivals, namely the Ford Focus or Hyundai Elantra.

The trunk is a large 13.7 cubic feet.

The smaller hatchback has 23.7 cubic feet behind the rear seat, not as much as the Honda Civic or Ford Focus hatchbacks. Even though it’s a compact, the Cruze hatch is slightly smaller than the subcompact Chevrolet Sonic hatchback. It’s all in vertical room, a penalty of the Cruze’s curvy roofing. However, with the rear seat folded, the Cruze hatch holds a competitive 47 cubic feet of cargo.

Driving Impressions

According to Chevrolet, the Cruze sedan can accelerate from zero to sixty in less than eight seconds, which is adequate. But there is a hesitation in the acceleration when you floor it, from the automatic transmission or maybe just the 153-horsepower engine. Uphill freeway on-ramps can be an issue.

Having lost 250 pounds in that redesign two years ago, the Cruze is now responsive , nimble, and fun to drive. The chassis is planted. The rack-mounted electric power steering isn’t too light at low speeds, and nicely weighted at high speed. It’s no sport sedan, but the Cruze handles better and with more confidence than some of its Japanese and Korean rivals.

The comfortable ride is one of the best in a compact car, even with the big 18-inch wheels. The standard rear suspension is torsion beam, but the Premier gets an improved Watt’s link setup for crisper cornering. The Cruze also comes with four-wheel disc brakes, using long-wearing Duralife rotors. We’ve tested a number of different iterations of Cruze, and the one we like is the most expensive: Premier Hatchback with the RS package. Besides handling the best, it’s smooth and compliant without being noisy or harsh.

Summary

The Chevy Cruze is well worth considering in the compact class, especially the new Hatch. The engine could use a bit more oomph, and we wish the glitch at early acceleration would go away. The expensive Cruze Premier RS is way sporty, while the cheapo Cruze L with the manual gearbox and cloth upholstery is still solid and complete enough to work as an economical daily driver.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
