Exterior and Interior

Badly, the 2017 Chevy Cruze goes with the exterior dimension of Astra which is not completely transferred to its cabin. Although this hatchback is completed with massive leather seats with the spaciousness inside, it is clear that the car loses something. It is mentioned by some reliable sources that it only works with two seats at the middle row with the height between the head on ceiling is only 180 cm

For the rear seat, 2017 Chevy Cruze cannot support taller person. When sitting there, the height only 180 cm, it would not be enough. This compact hatchback will go with solid standard. Compared to other sedan, it has 2 cm more space per capita. Inside the cabin, you can find out new cup holders to complete the redesigned cockpit for driver. It has seven-inch touch screen display integrated to MyLink system. It also has rear view camera so that you can use it for driving assistance.


For its engine performance, there will be no significant change to offer by the automaker for 2017 Chevy Cruze. The European buyers will get the base engine that is gasoline 1.6 liter with the power to produce about 117 horsepower or 86 kW that is still similar as the previous model. Another engine option is with 1.8 liter to generate the output about 141 horsepower and 104 kW. The last engine to offer is turbocharged version with 1.4 liter to produce 140 horsepower or 103 kW.
