The Chevrolet Cruze released in 2016 came with a redesigned exterior, lots of room for the occupants, and more technology and safety features.

In contrast with its predecessor, the new Cruze featured a sharp styling, with upgraded materials and the use of the latest technologies available.

The standard engine was a 1,4-liter turbocharged powerplant that developed with 15 more hp than the previous one. As the car was lighter and the torque was increased, Cruze became more agile.

The small sedan was offered with 4 trim levels: L, LS, LT, and Premier. The standard equipment included 15-inch alloys, air-con, a telescopic steering wheel, an adjustable driver seat, Bluetooth connection, and a 4-speaker audio system. It also had a rearview camera to ease parking and the MyLink infotainment system was equipped with a 7-inch touchscreen, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto included.

The LS trim level added a front center armrest and a carpeted floor, and buyers could additionally opt for an automatic transmission.

The LT trim level stepped up with bigger 16-inch alloys, cruise control, steering-wheel-mounted controls, a rear center armrest, LED running lights, and heated mirrors. The audio system was improved with 2 more speakers. Buyers could optionally add a so-called “Convenience package” with keyless ignition and entry, heated seats, and others.

Getting closer to the top range, the LT Premier came with 17-inch alloys, an improved rear suspension, a heated steering wheel, and leather upholstery.

The RS Package that could be added to either the LT or the LT Premier trim level offered 18-inch alloys, foglights, and a sports body kit. The touchscreen increased in size and got to 8-inch and the audio system was a Bose with 9 speakers.
