2012 Chevrolet Cruze | new car review

Posted on Feb 16, 2012 by

The hatchback was introduced in 2010 and was launched in the Middle East this year. It offers the same levels of interior space, comfort and features as the Cruze sedan.

The 2012 Chevrolet Cruze hatchback gets a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 141bhp at 6200rpm and 176Nm of maximum torque at 3800rpm. It has a six-speed transmission which has tall ratios aimed at better fuel economy and it consumes 6.6-litres of petrol per 100 kilometers bringing the fuel economy close to 15km/l.

It is available in two trims, the LS and the LT. The LT is the fully loaded version while the LS misses out on certain creature comforts in favour a lower price tag. The LS is further segregated into the 1SC and the 1SD variant. The LS gets 15-inch pressed steel wheels, electronically adjustable outside rear view mirrors (ORVM) and keyless entry as standard equipment. Options list on the LS include alloy wheels and fog lamps.

The LT has two sub-variants, the 1SB and the 1SC with the LT 1SC being the top of the line variant. The LT 1SB gets 16-inch alloys, fog lamps, and electronically adjustable ORVMs as standard. The top of the line LT gets 17-inch alloys and a passive entry as standard along with all other equipment mentioned above.

Other standard features on the 2012 Chevrolet Cruze include climate control, anti-lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brake distribution (EBD), in-dash audio system with AUX and USB inputs (LT), steering mounted controls, four airbags (LT) and leather wrapped steering wheel and gear knob.
