For folks looking for a fun but economical new car, a little diesel-powered hot hatch is endlessly appealing. The 2018 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback is now available with a 1.6L turbodiesel that maximizes performance and efficiency. This car lets you have fun on the track, but still offers some grown-up amenities and fuel efficiency for workday commutes.
The diesel engine in the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze gives you 137 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. With all of that torque available at just 1,500 rpm, you can turn the traction control off and easily get some wheel spin going. It’s equipped with excellent brakes that bring you from 60 mph to a stop in just 116 feet, shorter than most in the class. The brake pedal on the Cruze is is nice and firm, with a short travel distance that lets you keep your performance consistent. It also handles predictably, and Motor Trend testers noticed no torque steer to wrestle with.
The 2018 Chevrolet Cruze also performs admirably as a commuter car. It has a standout ride quality. The finely-tuned suspension isolates the cabin so well that you won’t notice bumpy roads and potholes around the city. If you want to upgrade your Cruze Diesel’s performance, the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze TD offers an RS package, as well. It comes with GM’s Z-link rear suspension, which gives you an even better ride than other variants. It’s also a highly efficient little hatchback. Some of the Cruze’s efficiency comes from its nine-speed automatic transmission. When you’re cruising on the highway or heading into town, the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze shifts so quickly and smoothly that you won’t even notice. The Cruze TD with the nine-speed automatic gets an EPA rating of 31 in the city and 47 on the highway.
Inside, you’ll find the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze has wonderfully comfortable seats and lots of amenities. The soft seat cushions and supportive side bolsters will keep you comfy for hours on end. There’s also plenty of rear-seat space for adults, so this makes a great car for road trips with your friends!

Your Cruze comes offers well-integrated systems like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, as well as all-access voice commands. A premium nine-speaker Bose audio system is available, too.
