2018 Chevrolet Cruze near Dubuque IA

Vehicle Overview

Although Chevrolet has been mainly known for manufacturing large vehicles such as SUVs and trucks, it has recently forayed into smaller-car segments. Consequently, one of its youngest offerings is the Cruze, which made its debut in 2008. The 2018 model year exhibits few changes as it ostensibly approaches the midway point of its second production cycle. The available trims are the L, LS, LT, and Premier. There's also the option of getting a diesel-powered Cruze.

Dubuque IA - 2018 Chevrolet Cruze Overview

Exterior - 2018 Chevrolet Cruze

The 2018 model's exterior lighting includes halogen headlights, which automatically turn on to illuminate your way when needed and automatically turn off when you don't. If you upgrade to at least the LT, those lights will be upgraded to projector headlights with LED signature lamps to provide bright, long-lasting white light. Other standard exterior features include heated power mirrors. The L and LS gets 15-inch steel wheels with bolt-on covers. On the LT and the diesel model, you will get an upgrade to 16-inch aluminum wheels, thus discarding the need for the covers. The top-level Premier is the only model with 17-inch aluminum wheels.

Interior - 2018 Chevrolet Cruze near Dubuque

The 2018 Chevrolet Cruze is designed as a four-door sedan and a five-door hatchback. The hatchback version, however, is only available for the upper-level LT and Premier trims. New for 2019 is the availability of the diesel-powered version as a hatchback and a sedan, just like the LT and Premier. Regardless of bodystyle, the Cruze can seat up to five people, with a trunk that provides 22.7 cubic feet. The seats in the back can be folded down to increase cargo space to 47.2 cubic feet. Front seating, at the base level, consists of a 6-way manually adjustable driver's seat and a 2-way manually adjustable passenger seat. If you go with the Premier or a diesel-powered model, the interior will be upgraded with leather seat trim, front-seat heating, and 8-way power adjustability on the driver's seat. The Premier is unique with its 4-way manual adjustability on the front passenger seat and heated leather-wrapped steering wheel. Base-level comfort and convenience features include four-speaker audio, a 7-inch touchscreen display, the MyLink infotainment system, a built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, a USB port and audio jack for connecting mobile devices, Bluetooth® wireless technology for hands-free phone calling and audio streaming, AM/FM radio, and Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ for smartphone integration. Sprucing up the Cruze from the LT trim upward are features such as cruise control, keyless open and start, a three-month trial subscription to SiriusXM® satellite radio, and controls mounted on the steering wheel. The Premier trim and diesel model come with additional remote start and two speakers to bring the grand total to six.
