The redesigned 2016 Chevy Cruze made its debut on Wednesday with an updated look, reduced weight, and increased room for passengers. This next generation of the sedan will be offered not just in the US, but in more than 40 other global markets after it goes on sale in North America early next year.
The Cruze adds .6 inches to its wheelbase for a total of 106.3 inches and 2.7 inches to its overall length which brings it to 183.7 inches. This means more room for passengers. Rear legroom is now 36.1 inches and there’s an additional 2 inches of knee room over the previous version of the Cruze. Despite its larger size, curb weight is down 250 pounds.

There is MacPherson strut suspension up front and a torsion beam axle in back on the L, LS, and LT models. A new Premier edition of the Cruze gets an enhanced Z-link design.
 Every model receives rack-mounted electric power steering, StabiliTrak electronic stability control, traction control, rollover mitigation, and anti-lock brakes.
Power will come from a 1.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder that produces 153 horsepower with 177 lb-ft of torque with a choice of a standard 6-speed manual or automatic transmission.

 The Cruze has a 0-60 time of 8 seconds with estimated highway fuel economy of 40 MPG. It will also feature an all-new MyLink Infotainment system with a 7″ color screen that is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
