Chevy is hoping that their new 2017 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback is going to appeal the young drivers. After all, the world is full with different types of drivers and you can’t expect them all to be the mature and serious ones only. That’s why the hatchback design is designed and created to meet the demands of these youth – and hopefully, the company will be doing well with their plan.
2017 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback Development Plan
Chevy is following a foolproof recipe when they are designing the new 2017 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback. Basically, you only need to change your compact sedan and add a hatchback design and voila! You get a hip and trendy ride, perfect for the youngsters. Chevy doesn’t want to deal with the complicated and difficult creation process so they follow this recipe when they are making this second gen Cruze and now, they have the compact and (claimed to be) powerful ride that is ready to compete with other small car variants.
2017 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback Design
The new Cruze hatchback isn’t too much different from the sedan – the only difference is the dimension and space in the cargo section. For the entertainment feature, you can still find Android Auto and Apple CarPlay technology with its 7-inch media system (with the touchscreen ability). What about the comfort? It is still comfy although it may not be as luxurious or exclusive as before despite the premiere trim.
Unlike the other competitors like Mazda 3, Ford Focus, or Hyundai Elantra, you won’t find this Cruze hatchback in the entry level package. You will have to spend extra for the LT package, which will be a good thing if you don’t mind spending extra. But price has always been a problem for most people, mind you.
2017 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback Engine and Performance
The new 2017 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback will be running on the I4 turbocharged 1.4 liter engine that is able to deliver 153 hp of power. The small ride may not be the fastest ride in the compact vehicle industry but you can be sure that it is one of the smoothest and best small rides ever made. It is also coming with diesel engine from VW TDI along with the manual transmission – although it may be not easy to sell from the price factor. The suspension is solid and working well. When compared to the previous Cruze, the new one is better and somewhat more promising because it offers better control and maneuver on the road.
2017 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback Technology
If you take a look at the new Cruze, not only the exterior design is pleasing to the eye, but the technology is also impressive. With a good media system, WiFi connection, and all the safety features, It is easy to see why this Cruze hatchback is considered a potential winner when it comes to the small car market.
Up for now, there hasn’t been any confirmation about the price and the release date so the best thing that you can do is to wait and see for further updates about 2017 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback.
