2018 Chevy Cruze now available in Ultra-Spacious Hatchback Model

Are the Chevy trucks near you simply too large for your needs? And are the sedans much too small? Sometimes it can be hard to find that perfect middle ground, but that’s what the 2018 Chevy Cruze hatchback is for. 

The 2018 Chevy Cruze hatchback has been flying off the lots at Chevy dealers near you for a reason–it’s a spectacularly efficient, fun to drive vehicle with ample space suitable for everything from cross country road trips to cross town errand trips. With more cabin room than the Cruze sedan, the hatchback has wider appeal and offers more comfort than any of its competitors. With the rear seats folded down, the Cruze hatchback has over 47 cubic feet of cargo space. (For comparison, the regular Cruze sedan’s trunk has just 14 cubic feet of space.) 

Of course, the Cruze hatchback offers more than just comfort and extra cargo room. The vehicle’s powertrain is powerful enough to compete with some Chevy trucks for sale. 

The new Cruze hatchback comes with the industry’s most exciting powertrain option: a 1.6-liter turbodiesel capable of producing 137 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque. Inside such a small package, the new turbodiesel packs quite a punch. But don’t worry–the 2018 Cruze doesn’t sacrifice efficiency for power. When paired to a six-speed manual transmission, the turbodiesel engine gets the Cruze an estimated 52 mpg on the highway. You won’t find numbers like that anywhere else outside of the hybrid or EV market. 

Want something with a little more power? The Cruze hatchback’s base engine is a turbocharged 1.4-liter gasoline engine which is capable of creating 153 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. It doesn’t offer quite the same level of efficiency though; the gas engine will get you roughly 40 mpg on the highway when paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. 

While many drivers choose the 2018 Chevy Cruze hatchback for its performance capabilities, others just fall in love with the way the vehicle looks. 

The new Cruze has a super sporty vibe thanks to its stockier tail end, roof spoiler and tall, sculpted rear bumper. Up front, the hatchback features a wide-mouth grille set inside an ultra-sleek nose with headlights that extend into the fenders. The available Redline package takes things to the next level with blacked-out wheels, mirror caps, window trim, bowties, fog lamp bezels and even a blacked-out grille. 

The 2018 Chevy Cruze hatchback is available now at a Chevy dealer near you.
