Cash for Cruze

December 28th, 2015 by

The 2016 Chevy Cruze gives you plenty of bang for your buck, and there is a reason that it’s the number one selling vehicle outside of the U.S. (it’s the Silverado in America). That’s because the 2016 Cruze blends state-of-the-art technology, a bold and striking design, impressive efficiency, and a sporty ride. It almost sounds too good to be true, and then you see the competitive pricing and think it has to be a dream. But it’s not a dream, it’s a Cruze.

Striking Design

The 2016 Chevy Cruze is one handsome vehicle. As far as sedans go, I personally think this is the best looking one. This sedan is not as dainty looking as some of the other ones out there, it’s got some muscle. Leading the charge is Chevy’s bold split grille design with the trademark Chevrolet logo sitting in the center. The grille is peeled back by the sleek and aggressive looking LED headlights, which sweep back and up towards the chiseled hood. Powerful curves on the hood run back and up, seamlessly melding with the roof and sides of the car. From that point on, it’s a sleek and smooth design that is sure to capture the eyes and hearts of many.

Innovative Technology

Inside the 2016 Cruze, the technology is just as impressive as the way it looks. Equipped with the latest and famous Chevrolet MyLink technology, it’s also the first car in its class to offer 4G LTE Wi-Fi built in. This syncs well with the MyLink technology, and allows the Cruze to make hands free operation of your device even more versatile. On top of the built in phone integration, the Cruze also sports a colorful and organized touchscreen that can be customized the way you like it. It also sports some state-of-the-art technological safety features, such as: lane keep assist, forward collision alert, and rear cross traffic alert.

Powerful Efficiency

The blend of power and efficiency in this vehicle makes for a wallet-friendly and sporty ride. The 2016 Cruze is housing a 1.4-liter turbo charge engine, paired to either the standard six-speed manual or optional six-speed automatic. This is the only engine option for the Cruze, and it puts out 153 horsepower. The Cruze is said to get up to 40 mpg highway and around 27 mpg city. 153 horse and 40 mpg highway sounds like a good balance too me.

Competitive Price

Best part about this 2016 Cruze; it’s all at a very competitive price. Take a sedan like the 2016 Honda Accord and start it off at around $22,000. Then, take a sedan like the Cruze and give it a starting price of around $18,000 after all basic offers are added on the baseline trim. It blows the mainstream Accords price out of the water, while still being in the same class. The most expensive Cruze trim with all the offers (including the RS package) is only a net price of $24,580. That’s only 2 grand more than the baseline 2016 Honda Accord.

That $2,400 is money well spent for a car of this caliber, and while everyone outside of the U.S. knows it, I think we are about to understand why as well.
