Chevrolet Reveals The Cruze Hatchback For North America
Chevrolet has unveiled the 2017 Cruze hatchback ahead of the 2016 Detroit Auto Show. The car will be hitting the North American market before the end of this year.
Hatchback enthusiasts are now rejoicing as American automobile division of General Motors Chevrolet has made an announcement that a 2017 Cruze hatchback model will be hitting the North American region before the end of 2016. The car was originally planned to debut at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, but thanks to a nine-percent growth in small hatchback cars in 2015, General Motors says this is the perfect time to bring the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze hatchback to America.
In comparison to the sedan version of the Chevrolet Cruze, the hatchback offers superior space for cargo as the second-row seats can be folded. Like the sedan sibling, the hatchback will be coming with an array of techy features. This includes compatibility of Google's Android Auto and Apple CarPlay via the car's infotainment system known as MyLink, plus connectivity to fourth-generation Long Term Evolution.
On the other hand, the Chevrolet Cruze hatchback will be limited to two levels, the Premier and the LT. Also available is a racing-style package for the Cruze hatchback that adds cosmetic details like unique rear and front fasciae and 18-inch alloy wheels.
Other characteristics of the new car that are offered as optional include an active safety feature that assists the driver to keep the car in lanes, blind-spot warnings and cross-traffic rear alerts. It is expected that the car will come standard with the same direct-injected turbo-four 1.4-liter engine from the sedan sibling that gives it 153 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque under its hood. Transmission options will include a six-speed automatic and a six-speed manual drive.
The 2017 Cruze will be retaining the MacPherson setup for strut front suspension and torsion beam rear, though this has been improved for better dynamics in driving. However, Premier models will be getting a Z-link design upgrade for rear suspension.
