EPA-estimated 42 mpg highway from new 1.4L turbo matches segment’s best

DETROIT – Offering EPA-estimated highway mileage of 42 mpg, the all-new 2016 #chevrolet #cruze is unsurpassed in its segment for fuel highway economy.

 “Offering a maximum highway range of up to 570* miles per tank– you can spend less time at the pump,” said Steve Majoros, director of marketing, #chevrolet Cars. “The 2016 #chevrolet Cruze  has more horsepower and torque, and is lighter than the previous generation making it more fun to drive.”

The Cruze’s EPA-estimated 42-mpg highway rating for L, LS and LT models rivals its competition. It tops competitors such as Focus with a four-cylinder (40 mpg hwy), Nissan Sentra FE (40 mpg hwy), Mazda3 (41 mpg hwy), Hyundai Elantra (37 mpg hwy) and Volkswagen Jetta (40 mpg hwy – non-hybrid).

The top-line #cruze Premier offers an EPA-estimated 40 mpg highway.

The Cruze’s efficiency is rooted in a new, direct-injected 1.4L Ecotec turbo and a leaner architecture, which contributes to a nearly 250-pound (113 kg) weight reduction on L, LS and LT trims over previous models. Stop/start technology bolsters efficiency in stop-and-go traffic, helping the #cruze offer an EPA-estimated 30 mpg in city driving – a 7-percent increase over previous models.

The most connected car in its class based on built-in 4G LTE WiFi and connectivity features, including  offering new technologies such as  Android #auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility**, a more comfortable ride and an athletic, aerodynamically optimized design, the 2016 #cruze elevates the compact car segment.

It also offers 10 standard air bags, as well as an expanded range of available adaptive crash-avoidance technologies, including Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist and Forward Collision Alert.

The #cruze range expands in the fall with an all-new hatchback model and the #cruze diesel returns in early 2017.
