Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback Review 0

The Chevrolet Cruze is very popular in North America and is a car to be respected here in the UK. We discuss exactly why it is a worth taking a look at if you want a practical hatchback.

Safety and Security

The safety aspect of the Chevrolet Cruze is one of the car’s strongest assets. Unlike some rivals, stability control comes as standard with all models. This will help keep the car in check if it comes off balance. The six airbags fitted throughout the vehicle help keep everyone as safe as possible during a potential incident. In terms of a security aspect, it will be difficult for thieves to break in with deadlocks and an engine immobiliser fitted in to the vehicle.

Running costs

The price of the Chevrolet Cruze is amongst the cheapest in it’s class.


The quality of the car is quite high which has helped the company’s reputation increase. Inside the cabin you get a wonderfully designed interior with excellent material throughout.


The boot is quite spacious with plenty of storage space. The rear has a good amount of space in terms of legroom. The split rear seats help to extend the space if needed which is quite a neat feature. In terms of practicality the Hatchback edges the Saloon version of the Cruze given that it is a lot easier to load items.


At the bottom end of the scale, The Chevrolet Cruze LS contains a CD player, electric front windows, remote locking, a CD player, air conditioning and MP3 connectivity ability. In our opinion this quite a generous amount of kit for a standard entry level hatchback, especially given the price of the car.

Upgrading to the LT trim, you will get cruise control, electric windows all round, stylish alloy wheels, parking sensors as well as front foglights.

With the LTZ package you’ll get Bluetooth connectivity ability within with automatic headlights and wipers. At the very top end of the range with the LTZ Executive package comes leather heated seats with satellite navigation.
