Paige Dodd. Chevrolet. October 20th , 2017.
The Chevrolet Cruze Hatch has the same, class-leading 106.3-inch (2,700 mm) wheelbase as sedan models, but features a unique roof and rear-end structure - including wraparound taillamps and an integrated spoiler at the hsatop of the liftgate. It opens to offer 18.5 cubic feet (524 liters) of cargo space behind the rear seat. With the rear seat folded, cargo space expands to 42 cubic feet (1,189 liters). An all-new, more rigid and lighter architecture is the Chevrolet Cruze foundation for driving dynamism, while also playing a significant role in safety and efficiency. It is more than 200 pounds (91 kg) lighter than the previous-generation model due largely to a body structure that is 100 pounds lighter and an engine that 44 pounds (20 kg) lighter. The Chevy Cruze lineup in North America is offered in L, LS, LT and Premier - and a more expressive RS package, featuring unique front and rear fascias, rocker panels, rear spoiler, fog lamps and - on the Premier model - 18-inch wheels. Chevrolet introduced the all-new 2016 Malibu - a completely restyled midsize sedan engineered to offer more efficiency, connectivity and advanced safety features than ever. An all-new hybrid powertrain, which leverages technology from the Chevrolet Volt, will offer an estimated combined fuel economy rating exceeding 45 mpg. The Malibu standard 1.5L turbo powertrain is projected to offer 37 mpg highway.
The entry model may be well equipped but there’s a lot more to come as we move up the range. LT models come with just the 150PS diesel engine and are fitted as standard with 17" alloy wheels, levelling suspension, half leather trim, heated windscreen and ESP, the electronic stability control programme. Practicality is not overlooked on the LT either with a load restraining net, front passenger underseat stowage and a facia deposit box for coins or maps - there even a cooled glove box to stop your chocolate bars melting in summer. LT models come with side airbags as standard. Level ride rear suspension ensures that the vehicle maintains good road manners even with a full load and automatic transmission is available as an option with the diesel engine (seven seat models only), not always the norm in this sector. The LT is available as a specific derivative with either five or seven seats. With the seven-seat model comes a cargo net (in lieu of the five-seat load restraining net) and rear park sensors. At the top of the range comes the flagship Captiva LT Special Model. This really is the has it all Captiva and here are some examples: 18" alloy wheels, full leather trim, 8-way power driver seat, 6 CD autochanger, air quality system with full climate control, cruise control and a trip computer. The full specification for all Captiva models is listed later. SUVs have a practical job to do for the family but also offer a feeling of greater security when driving that is particularly appreciated by women. The command driving position ensures a great all-round view and controls are light and convenient. There is plenty of space inside Captiva for five adults in great comfort. The third row of seats (available in the LT model) will accommodate two teenagers in comfort and even adults for shorter journeys. The easy-fold feature on the third row and fold-flat capability for both second and third rows is impressive and the large hydraulically assisted tailgate with wide aperture makes the big boot area easy to load (for light shopping, the remote control operated tailgate glass is a real boon, opening without the need to unlock the rest of the vehicle).
Loading the Traverse is a breeze with a new Chevrolet bowtie logo lamp feature illuminating the ground to show where drivers need to place a foot to activate the available hands-free power liftgate. A new split-folding second-row seat improves on the Traverse‘s original Smart Slide® feature. The curbside seat is capable of tipping up and sliding forward, even with a forward-facing child seat in place, to provide open and easy access to the third row. Third-row legroom is expected to be the most spacious in the segment at 33.7 inches (856 mm).
The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse offers purposeful technology designed to help keep passengers safe, comfortable and connected. Chevrolet’s latest connectivity technologies include available 7- and 8-inch-diagonal MyLink infotainment systems designed to support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as an available OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. Passengers will have access to USB charging ports in all three seating rows, available wireless charging and steering wheel-mounted phone and audio controls. Chevrolet’s Rear Seat Reminder feature is standard on all trim levels. A new 3.6L V-6 and nine-speed automatic transmission form the standard propulsion system, expected to offer nearly 10 percent more horsepower than the current model and a GM-estimated 25 mpg highway (FWD). The combination also supports an estimated 5,000-pound (2,268 kg) trailering capacity when properly equipped.
