The 2018 Chevrolet Cruze is a package of top technologies and smart innovations. For 2019, the new Cruze lineup follows this recipe of success. There’s more tech, more style, and more fun in store for Cruze shoppers.
The 2018 model year saw the Cruze sedan and hatch become even more popular. For 2019, refreshed styling gives the car more curb appeal. Chevrolet has fashioned a premium appearance by upgrading different aspects of the exterior. The fascia and grille have taken on more distinctive look. LED accent lighting enhances the signature dual-element tail lamps. LT models have Projector headlamps with LED signature lighting. A new RS package adds black bowtie emblems and black window moldings. A rear spoiler and sport body kit adds to the racy attitude. It wears 17-inch black machined wheels. This is just one of the new wheel designs that Chevy has provided for the Cruze trim levels.
Chevrolet packed the 2018 model with a touchscreen and a rearview camera. It has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Now the 2019 model will have an updated system. This Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system utilizes a 7-inch diagonal color touchscreen radio. As before, the 2019 Cruze offers OnStar 4G LTE connectivity. You can have a WiFi hotspot. 2019 upper trims have picked up automatic climate control for high-tech temperature regulation. A remote starter is another new feature for the higher trims. Premier models have a long list of features, including keyless start, heated front seats, and a heated steering wheel. The biggest stylistic difference is a new Umber interior color for 2019 models.
The 2019 continues the choice of a 1.4L turbo or a 1.6L turbo-diesel. Both of these engines are remarkably swift while maintaining good fuel economy. Chevrolet offers one of the longest lists of driver aids on the market. For parking maneuvers, shoppers can get a rear cross-traffic alert that watches for danger. A forward-facing pedestrian watch can trigger an autobrake. At low speeds, forward automatic braking may intervene when traffic stops suddenly. The following distance indicator can help prevent close calls. On the road, a lane change alert tells the driver not to leave the lane. The blind spot monitor reveals neighboring traffic that the driver may not be able to see. A lane keeper will sound a warning and assist the driver. Like the 2018 edition, the 2019 Cruze has 10 airbags for extra safety.
