2017 Cruze Hatchback – Chevrolet has announced its newest model ahead of the 2016 North American International Auto show, the 2017 Cruze Hatchback. Technically already roaming other parts of the globe, the Cruze Hatchback is making its first appearance in the U.S. thanks to dispersing acceptance and growing sales of hatchbacks in the States.
2017 Cruze Hatchback Review
With nine percent market growth in small hatchbacks last year, its the ideal time to bring the Cruze Hatch to America, said Alan Batey, president of General Motors North America and Worldwide Chevrolet. As Cruze continues to set the tone for Chevrolet globally, it says the brand promise of offering cars with the newest technologies, more features and greater efficiency, functionality and security with fresh, distinctive styling.
2017 Cruze Hatchback Redesign
The hatchback version of Chevys bests selling worldwide auto rides on the same all-new platform uncovered under the 2016 Cruze. It also features the same greatly improved inside, updated powertrain, and continues undercutting the preceding Cruzes curb weight.
2017 Cruze Hatchback Interior
The 2017 Cruze Hatchback will offer all the same high-tech attributes as its sedan brother, too, including MyLink with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, heated seats front and back, a heated steering wheel, projector-beam headlights with LED accents, and an interior that features French stitching and available leather surfaces.
The Cruze LT (both hatchback and sedan) is anticipated to sport such regular features as 16-inch alloy wheels, heated outside mirrors, cruise control, a pair of additional audio speakers, and satellite radio. The top-shelf Premier sedan and hatchback are anticipated to boast typical 17-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, heated front seats with a power-adjustable driver’s seat, remote engine start, an updated rear suspension, and a heated steering wheel.
2017 Cruze Hatchback Exterior
The 2017 Cruze L and LS are eligible for choices that come standard in the higher trims. The LT and Premier sedan and hatchback can be upward-fitted with the RS Appearance package, hosting 18-inch alloy wheels, front fog/driving lights, and a rear spoiler, and the Sun & Sound package, with a power sunroof, 9-speaker Bose sound, and an 8-inch MyLink touchscreen display (plus GPS navigation on the Premier). The Premier also offers the Enhanced Convenience package, with an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, heated rear seats, a wireless personal charger, and an 110-volt power outlet. Available 4G LTE WiFi Hotspot capability can be added to the standard OnStar telematics on all 2017 Cruze trimmings.
Standard safety equipment aboard the 2017 Cruze includes 4-wheel antilock brakes, traction and stability control, front and back side-mounted airbags, front and rear head curtain airbags, daytime running lights, a post-collision security system, and OnStar emergency communications and alarms. The Premier is slated to qualify for a pair of optional Driver Trust bundles that include back parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, automatic high/low beam headlights, a lane-departure warning, and a forward collision alarm. The authorities give the present Cruze sedan its best evaluation of 5 stars for overall crashworthiness, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awards the Cruze a top score of Great on all crash tests.
2017 Cruze Hatchback Engine
Behind the aggressive grille lies the heavily revised 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. The engine offloads the old 1.4-liters iron block for an aluminum construction, which with the aluminum cylinder head, makes the all-aluminum engine with an apparent decrease in weight. Direct fuel injection and four valves per cylinder with variable time work in conjunction with new low-friction components that comprise the piston rings, camshaft drive, and oil pump to provide more horsepower and torque than before.
Electricity is up by 15 hp and torque is improved by 28 pound-feet, helping drop the Cruzes 0-to-60 mph sprint to eight seconds flat.
Specifically, electricity is up by 15 horsepower and torque is enhanced by 28 pound-feet, helping drop the Cruzes 0-to-60 mph sprint to eight seconds flat. Despite this, the engine is more efficient than before. In the sedan, the 1.4-liter earns an estimated 40 mpg on the highway. In-city fuel economy is currently assisted by a conventional start/stop function. The engine is mated to your pick of a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission, just like the sedan.
Chevy has made no reference of the 1.6-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel making its appearance in the Cruze Hatchback, though the chance is very high.
2017 Cruze Hatchback Price
The 2017 Cruze Hatchback will take a beginning cost of $22,190 when it arrives in showrooms in the fall of 2016. That makes the Hatchback $195 more expensive than the Cruze LT sedan. Keep in mind the Hatchback isn’t offered in the Cruzes L or LS trimmings. Costs for the Premier and RS Bundle have never been announced, but we anticipate Chevys pricing strategy to stick close to that $195 price increase for the Hatchback. If that’s the case, the Premier trimming will start at $24,190. The RS Bundle is now unavailable on the Cruze sedan, so pricing is still a mystery there.
