The 2018 Chevrolet Cruze Sedan is a compact sedan offered in 4 trims, starting off at a base MSRP of $16,975. For that price, it mainly competes with the Toyota Corolla Sedan, the Honda Civic Sedan, and the Mazda 3 Sedan. Between 3 trims, the Cruze offers 2 powertrain options. It is a 1.4L turbocharged Inlin-4 engine making 153 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. However, there is a choice between a 6-speed automatic transmission and a 5-speed manual (only on the LT trim). There is also a 1.6L turbocharged Inline-4 diesel engine on offer which puts out 137 horsepower. The Cruze reaches 60 MPH from zero in 8.4 seconds on its base engine, which gets pumped up to 8.2 seconds with the turbodiesel engine. Depending on the powertrain, the Cruze can manage a combined fuel economy between 33 and 37 MPG. While we’re on the topic of choices, the 5 striking colors the Cruze comes in really pull you towards itself.
