Used 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Review
The Used 2014 Chevrolet Cruze is a four door compact sedan. It's a no-nonsense well-balanced compact car with a sensible design, spacious interior for its size and strong features.
The Cruze has become a serious rival for the traditional Japanese-brand leaders of the compact car segment.
The Chevrolet Cruze features a high efficiency 4-cylinder engine, ample passenger space and a larger trunk for a Compact at an impressive 15.0 cubic feet. The trunk space reduces to 13.3 cubic feet on the Diesel Model.
The Cruze's engine is a front wheel drive with a 1.8 liter 4-cylinder clocking in at 138 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque on the LS while the LT, LTZ and Eco models has a 1.4 liter 4-cylinder at the same horsepower but with 148 pound-feet of torque.
In government crash tests performed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) the Chevrolet Cruze earned a top five-star rating for overall safety performance, with five stars in the frontal- and side-impact categories.
The interior of the Chevrolet Cruze is comfortable and classy with a two-tone color scheme and fully adjustable seats. For convenience, the voice controlled interface for the MyLink touchscreen infotainment system is highly functional and responsive.
Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel
The Turbo Diesel model has a turbocharged 2.0-liter diesel 4-cylinder rated at 151 horsepower and 264 pound-feet of torque. It comes in a 6-speed manual standard or automatic optional. This potent diesel is a win-win offering good fuel economy and satisfyingly brisk acceleration. And for those worried about the stereotypical clatter of traditional Diesel engines, fear not, as extra sound insulation has been added to keep engine noise to a minimum.
The Used 2014 Chevrolet Cruze is the compact to watch. A small car with big aspirations, the Cruze will keep moving down the road to success.
