The journey begins with the 2013 Chevrolet Cruze

Cruze has redefined everything a compact car should be with one simple word: more. Chevy knows that just because Cruze is a compact doesn't mean you should get less. That's why it gives you more of everything you need and deserve from efficiency to safety, features to styling.

Designed to fit seamlessly into your ever-evolving life, Cruze is the first car in its class with 10 standard air bags, and even today, no car in its class offers more. Cruze offers more cargo space, more technology, more connectivity and more miles per gallon with the Cruze Eco. At 42 MPG, it’s the best highway mileage of any gas engine in America. Your wallet is going to thank you.

Everything you'd expect from a Chevy, in one compact car.

Awards & Accolades

“Highest Ranked in Initial Quality for Midsize Sporty Car (tie), Large Car, Large CUV, Large Heavy Duty Pickup, Large Light Duty Pickup (tie)”

July-01-2013
Chevrolet Has Received More 2013 J.D. Power Initial Quality Awards Than Any Other Automotive Brand. These results highlight Chevrolet’s commitment to quality. Customers want inventive designs, advanced features, exhilarating performance and great quality-without any sacrifices. At Chevrolet, quality is at the center of every decision that affects the development of every vehicle.

A New Standard

Beauty meets compact

"One of the first things you notice about the Chevrolet Cruze is that you notice it. Cruze is a compact sedan that rises above the anonymity that previously plagued the affordable car segment thanks to its bold design and pleasing proportions." – Autobytel.

The auto industry is not the only one taking notice of the stunning exterior. Centered by the strong, attention-grabbing Chevrolet grille, its swept-back lamps lead the eye across sculpted fenders, around the sides and back again. Bottom line? Don’t be surprised when people stop to admire.

And sure, Cruze leaves a lasting impression with its bold exterior design, but don’t forget that those curves, lines and angles do more than just please the eye and turn heads. They improve aerodynamics; in the end optimizing fuel efficiency and helping you get the most out of each drop of gas.

An interior to match your lifestyle

It’s called a compact, but that just doesn’t seem fair to other compact cars. The cavernous interior of Cruze not only has more passenger room than Ford Focus Sedan and Toyota Corolla, but it beats them out with more cargo space too. And Cruze is smart about how to use all that space with 60/40 split-folding rear seats so you can find room for larger items. Refinements such as soft touch interiors, rich colors and available heated leather-appointed front seats give Cruze a premium feel.

Sophisticated performance, ride
and handling

You want a car that makes the most out of every dollar you put in the gas tank without sacrificing performance and handling. To get those results you need to have a pretty impressive engine, and Cruze absolutely does.

The available 1.4L turbocharged engine is designed for fuel efficiency without compromising performance. It delivers 138 horsepower with 148 lb.-ft. of torque and accelerates with authority. With rack-mounted Electric Power Steering and an available race-proven Z-link rear suspension, it’s a driving experience that just might surprise you.

Getting the most out of each drop of fuel

Cruze takes you farther for less. With an incredible 42 MPG highway, advanced aerodynamics and its 1.4L turbocharged engine, Cruze Eco gives you more fuel efficiency without sacrificing performance. That’s better highway fuel efficiency than 2012 Ford Focus Sedan, 2012 Hyundai Elantra, 2012 Honda Civic and 2012 Toyota Corolla. That’s what happens when Chevrolet engineers approach every inch of a vehicle to improve its efficiency — it rises above the rest. It’s the best highway mileage of any gasoline engine in America.

Eco doesn't stand alone as all Cruze models live up to a high standard of efficiency. The standard 6-speed transmission, like the manual in Cruze LS, helps offer 36 MPG highway. Then there’s the available 6-speed automatic transmission with the available 1.4L turbocharged engine ­­­— helping Cruze offer 38 MPG highway.

Tested worldwide, just for you

Cruze offers solutions instead of sacrifices and was fine tuned in testing all over the world. Cruze proved itself in some hostile environments: continuous driving in the heat of the Arabian Desert, high altitude of the Alps, intense moisture of Thailand and more. Then it was put through its paces on some of the best test tracks in the world, including the famed Nürburgring in Germany, a beastly track and proving grounds generally reserved for high-performance and track-ready vehicles.

Cruze is one of the most tested vehicles in Chevrolet history, and that’s why we guarantee its quality with a 100,000-mile/5-year transferable Powertrain Limited Warranty.

You can even opt to hear directions and prompts from an automated voice. The OnStar Directions & Connections Plan® is standard on Cruze for 6 months.

Technology and safety come together

Cruze now offers an available Enhanced Safety Package that includes Rear Park Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert that alerts you when there is oncoming traffic that you can't see while backing up. It also comes with Side Blind Zone Alert, which uses radar to spot cars in the toughest place to spot – your blind zone. The available rear vision camera displays a rear view on the touch-screen conveniently located in the center stack for easy view. This feature helps you see stationary objects behind you when traveling in reverse at low speeds.

Prevention and Protection

Safety we hope you never need

Our philosophy is to provide the best protection and the best prevention. Cruze has received high vehicle safety ratings and accolades. The 2012 Cruze is an IIHS 2012 Top Safety Pick and received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In fact, Cruze has more standard safety features than any car in its class, including 10 standard air bags4. And with available safety features like a rear vision camera, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Side Blind Zone Alert — features that aren't available on Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla —
it sets the bar for safety. Simply put, it’s our “more” approach to safety.

Prevent

We’ve equipped Cruze with numerous safety features, including the StabiliTrak® Electronic Stability Control System with Traction Control. On slippery surfaces, StabiliTrak helps you stay the course by detecting the difference between the path being steered and the direction the vehicle is actually traveling. It then uses the brakes and, if necessary, adjusts engine torque to help keep your Cruze on track.

Protect

Cruze helps protect you and your passengers with 10 standard air bags, including frontal side-impact and knee air bags for the driver and front passenger, and a high-strength steel safety cage and roof crush resistance that outperform the requirements. Cruze was the first car in its class with 10 standard airbags, and there's still no other car in its class that offers more.

Respond

In most crashes, crucial information is sent to the OnStar® Command Center via the OnStar Automatic Crash Response system. There, trained Advisors utilize GPS technology to determine your location and can request that help be sent right away — even if you’re unable to respond. It’s part of the OnStar Directions & Connections Plan®†, standard for six months.

It’s continuous protection, no matter when you need it.

HOW SUSTAINABLE IS THE CRUZE?

Check out its “Ecologic” Features. Here at Chevrolet, we believe in being a responsible steward of our environment. Recently, we’ve developed a new way to communicate some of the environmentally significant features of each vehicle we make. We call it “Ecologic.”

Every aspect of Ecologic is audited by Two Tomorrows, an independent third party sustainability auditor. To learn more about Ecologic and the Two Tomorrows’ process, click here.

Fuel-Saving Technologies

Continuously Variable Valve Timing (VVT) adjusts airflow in and out of the combustion chamber under all engine speeds, which makes for better fuel economy and lower emissions. Smart alternator technology (Regulated Voltage Control) lowers the alternator voltage when the battery is fully charged, which improves fuel economy.

A six-speed transmission allows the engine to operate at a lower rate of speed as compared to transmissions with fewer gears, which results in better fuel economy. Electric power steering uses an electric motor instead of an engine-driven belt, which results in a lighter overall workload and better fuel economy.

The Cruze Eco uses a host of fuel saving technologies to help achieve an EPA-estimated 42 MPG highway. Active air shutters, underbody aero panels, an aero blade, lowered front fascia air dam and a decklid spoiler reduce drag, which lessens engine workload and saves gasoline.

Responsible Manufacturing

The 1.4L engine facility and the transmission facilities are landfill-free. These facilities use a process to reuse, recycle or convert to energy all waste created in their daily operations, which conserves resources.

The Lordstown, OH, assembly facility and Toledo, OH, transmission facility feature designated habitat areas certified by the Wildlife Habitat Council, which provide ecological benefits.

End-of-Life Recyclability

After the vehicle’s useful life, 85% of it is recyclable. The majority of its components can be broken down and recycled, which conserves resources and reduces landfill deposits.
