2017 Chevrolet Cruze Walk Around


The Cruze sedan is longer and wider than most compacts, with a wedge shape that leads to a short rear deck. It has the same grille as the Chevy Volt, Malibu, and Impala.

Though they share the same wheelbase, the Hatch is eight inches shorter overall, all of the loss coming behind the rear doors. The roof curves back to a spoiler over the back glass in the fifth-door hatch that’s a bit small.

Interior

The cabin is modern without being too digital. It’s similar to the high-tech Volt, with relatively simple instrumentation in a pod, outlined in chrome, and intuitive controls. The layout is clean and sharp. In the center of the dash there’s a stand 7.0-inch or 8.0-inch touchscreen. Two-tone trim on the higher models. The front seats are comfortable, with better bolstering in the leather seats than cloth.

For a compact car, the Cruze sedan is very spacious. By the tape measure, it looks like a midsize car. It holds four adults as advertised, with more leg and hip room in the rear seat than rivals, namely the Ford Focus or Hyundai Elantra.

The trunk is a large 13.7 cubic feet.

The smaller hatchback has 23.7 cubic feet behind the rear seat, not as much as the Honda Civic or Ford Focus hatchbacks. Even though it’s a compact, the Cruze hatch is slightly smaller than the subcompact Chevrolet Sonic hatchback. It’s all in vertical room, a penalty of the Cruze’s curvy roofing. However, with the rear seat folded, the Cruze hatch holds a competitive 47 cubic feet of cargo.
