2012 Chevrolet Cruze 1.7 VCDi launched

2012-Chevrolet-Cruze-1.7-VCDi This is the Chevrolet Cruze 1.7 VCDi 5dr, which costs from £16,725, and is on sale now.

The new model has a 1.7-litre diesel engine that averages 62.7mpg – 12.3mpg more than Cruze 2.0 VCDi models, while CO2 emissions are 30g/km lower at 117g/km.

These figures – translated into lower running costs – should give the Cruze more appeal as a company car and will allow it to compete with 1.6-litre diesel versions of cars such as the Ford Focus and Hyundai i30.

Three trims will be available: entry-level LS comes with air-conditioning and stability control, while LT has extras such as alloys, electric rear windows and rear parking sensors. Top-spec LTZ models get cruise control, automatic headlights and wipers, and climate control.

Initially, the 1.7 VCDi engine will be available in five-door versions of the Cruze only. It’ll also be offered in the Cruze Station Wagon, which will go on sale in autumn 2012.

Deliveries of the Chevrolet Cruze 1.7 VCDi 5dr will start in May.
