The redesigned 2016 Cruze possesses big car qualities such as a comfortable ride and a quiet interior. The standard engine is an unobtrusive 1.4-liter, four-cylinder turbo mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. A smooth start-stop feature reduces fuel use during idling; we got 30 mpg overall in our tests. A new 1.6-liter turbodiesel and a hatchback version will be available later. A new infotainment system, featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, mirrors some of your smart-phone icons on the screen. The rear seat is relatively roomy for the class but the front seats are short on lower back support. A variety of advanced active safety features are available, unfortunately only on the top-trim premier version. First year reliability of the redesign has been well above average.
