2016 Chevy Cruze vs 2017 Cruze Hatch

The Chevy Cruze has long been a top choice for drivers seeking top fuel efficiency and style in a small car. The 2016 Chevy Cruze has officially made its arrival here at Craig Dunn, but there are two other Cruze models that won’t be arriving until this fall. One is a diesel model of the Chevy Cruze, and the other is the 2017 Chevy Cruze Hatch, the first hatchback form of this compact car. We are excited about the possibilities, but what will be different between these two vehicles? Keep reading for our 2016 Chevy Cruze vs 2017 Cruze Hatch comparison.

Cruze Trim Levels

While the 2016 Chevy Cruze will be available in L, LS, LT and Premier trim levels, the 2017 Chevy Cruze Hatch will only be available in the upper LT and Premier trims. A sporty RS package will be available on both.

Interior Space Cruze vs Cruze Hatch

One of the advantages of a hatchback five-door body style is that it offers more cargo space behind the rear seats. The 2017 Chevy Cruze Hatch will feature 524 litres of space behind the rear seats, which can expand out to 1,336 litres with the rear seats folded down. The 2016 Chevy Cruze has 419 litres behind the rear seats on the L and LS trims, and just 393 on the LT, Premier and RS.

Powertrain on the Chevy Cruze

We’re pretty sure that both the Chevy Cruze and the 2017 Cruze Hatch will boast the same 1.4-litre turbocharged engine, rated for 113 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. Thanks to features like direct fuel injection and engine stop-start this engine delivers stunning fuel economy in the 2016 Chevy Cruze sedan.We are hopeful that that will carry over to the hatchback model as well.
