After being redesigned in 2011, Chevrolet is experiencing even bigger things in 2012 with its compact Cruze. It used to be that cars such as the Honda Civic, Mazda 3, or Toyota Corolla dominated the small car market in the United States. However, after tremendous improvement on last year’s model, the 2012 Chevy Cruze is making quite a name for itself. Equipped with a luxury-style cabin and a very smooth ride, this year’s Cruze has become a fan favorite for drivers around Cedar Rapids, IA and throughout the Midwest and is waiting for you at Pat McGrath Chevyland.
Features and Fuel Economy of the 2012 Cruze
The 2012 Cruze is available in four trim levels: the LS, Eco, LT and LTZ and each come with distinct features and amenities. Starting with the LS, drivers of the sleek and compact sedan will get 16” steel wheels, a trip computer, OnStar, full power accessories, a six-speaker stereo system with a CD and MP3 player, and an auxiliary jack. The Eco model is very similarly equipped to the LS, but it is optimized for maximum fuel efficiency with its lightweight alloy wheels, low-rolling resistance tires and aerodynamic body style.
The LT is broken down into 1LT and 2LT subcategories. The 1LT model has a turbocharged engine, color-keyed power mirrors and the Connectivity package, which brings with it Bluetooth, a USB port and steering wheel mounted audio controls. On the other hand, the 2LT comes with a remote starter, a sport suspension, leather, and a few other amenities. Finally, the LTZ adds 18” alloy wheels, rear parking assist, keyless ignition, automatic climate control and premium interior trim.
The Cruze gives drivers an estimated 25 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway for the LS model. The turbocharged engine for the LT and LTZ Cruze gets roughly 26/ 30 mpg.
