The 2016 Chevy Cruze Eco Limited: Efficient, Affordable Luxury
With all the discussion around making cars more efficient, less wasteful, and more affordable for efficiency, it’s surprisingly difficult to find a car with good fuel economy that won’t break the bank for the average consumer. Sure, plenty of hybrid models out there offer excellent fuel economy, but the damage done to your wallet is enough to turn plenty of buyers away. On the other hand, those cars that are affordable tend to suffer in the gas tank, and that cost can build up over the long term. It seems like there aren’t many options for truly efficient, affordable vehicles out there – and that’s why we’re so excited about the 2016 Chevy Cruze Eco Limited, one fo the most efficient and well-outfitted trims available on the 2016 Chevy Cruze.
Built to challenge everybody’s preconceived notions of how efficient a fuel-powered car can be, this impressive compact offers an amazing performance on a highly efficient motor alongside a welcoming, stylish interior and the great advanced tech that modern consumers have come to expect. And for everything it offers, the Cruze Eco Limited starts at just $20,195 – an excellent value for an excellent vehicle.
Interested in putting some economical, modern, turbocharged style in your garage? Here’s a quick look at the 2016 Chevy Cruze Eco Limited, and why it might be the fuel-saving compact you’ve been looking for.
Highly Efficient Powertrain
When it comes to pushing out an amazing 42 miles per gallon highway consistently day after day, there’s nothing more important than having a powerful engine with a great fuel economy. That’s why the Cruze Eco Limited features a tightly-engineered turbo engine with transmission options to give each Eco Limited driver the chance to find the vehicle that works best for them.
An Efficient Turbo Engine
Featuring Chevy’s impressive EcoTec 1.4L Turbo engine, the Cruze Eco Limited utilizes an exhaust-driven turbocharger that delivers the power of a larger engine during periods of hard driving. Plus, with enough power to push out 138 horsepower and 148 lb.-ft. of torque, you’ll be able to get wherever you’ve got to go with a sporty and dependable engine under your feet.
Two Transmission Options
For those in search of a vehicle to meet every need, the Cruze Eco Limited features two transmission options to choose from. The standard Cruze comes with a highly-efficient six-speed manual transmission, offering 28 miles per gallon city and a whopping 42 miles per gallon highway. Those willing to sacrifice a little fuel economy, however, can choose the 6-speed automatic transmission for just an additional $1,275, which offers 26 miles per gallon city and 39 miles per gallon highway. The automatic option opens up a wide array of optional upgrades not found on the manual model, including a remote starter system, power front seats, rear center armrest, and a standard enhanced acoustic system, while the manual is the only one to offer a cargo cover compartment.
Bold, Modern Styling
For all the efficient and rewarding performance that the Cruze Eco Limited brings to the table, it doesn’t fail to impress us with its bold and sleek style centered around comfort and class on the road. Between its elegant exterior and welcoming interior, this compact is easily one of the nicest on the road today.
A Compact That Stands Out
With an exterior style centered around aerodynamic efficiency and bold lines across a compact body, the Cruze Eco Limited is sure to turn heads wherever you go. 17-inch light-weight forged polished alloy wheels accent standard features like the rear spoiler and the standard Aero Performance package, which includes a lower front grille air shutter, mid-body aero panels, and a front fascia air dam to boost aerodynamics.
A Plush, Welcoming Interior
Front bucket seats and 60/40 folding rear seats covered in premium cloth upholstery welcome you and your passengers each time you open the doors of your Cruze Eco Limited. A comfort grip steering wheel offers easy access to mounted audio and Bluetooth controls, while features like a sliding center console with an armrest and the standard air conditioner keep you comfortable and collected out on the road.
Built For The Future
If any vehicle is going to gain traction with modern buyers, it has to be outfitted with the advanced entertainment, connectivity, and safety tech we’ve come to expect both on and off the road. Luckily, the Chevy Cruze Eco Limited does just that, with a wide array of modern tech standard or available to make your drive more comfortable than ever.
Entertainment And Convenience Tech
Featuring a standard Chevrolet MyLink radio connectivity system, the Cruze Eco Limited features a CD player, audio input, MP3, and Bluetooth connectivity, and even streaming audio options to make your drives more fun than ever before. A free three-month trial of SiruisXM Satellite Radio offers hours of listening pleasure on the road, while the available navigation system promises to get you home no matter how lost you find yourself.
Centered Around Safety
Ten standard airbags, a high-strength steel frame, and standard OnStar Emergency services are all there and ready to protect you from the worst on the road in the event of an accident, but the Cruze Eco Limited’s preventative safety tech is what helps make this vehicle so safe on the road, helping prevent accidents before they ever happen.
