Chevrolet has released pricing for the attractive and utilitarian Cruze hatchback before the vehicle goes on sale next month in the United Kingdom with a starting price of £13,995 for the 1.6-liter equipped LS model.
The 1.6-liter engine is rated at 122 horsepower, with the LS package bringing air-conditioning, remote locks, electric-front windows, and an auxiliary input to the table.
Next up is the 1.6L LT for £14,895, which builds on the LS with cruise control, all electric windows, a multi-function trip computer, parking distance sensors, 16-inch alloys, a leather steering wheel, and a matching leather shift knob. Topping off the gas range is the LTZ powered by the 139 HP 1.8 liter featuring Bluetooth, a USB port, rain-sensing windshield wipers, automatic headlights, an electro-chromatic rear view mirror, 17-inch alloys, and aluminium-effect trim on the instrument panel.
The diesel range for the Cruze hatch starts at £17,195 for the 163 HP 2.0L VCDi LT model. As far as features go, the 2.0 liter LT gets the same features as the 1.6 liter LT gas model. For only £600 more, you can step up to the 2.0 liter VCDi LTZ that comes with the same features as the 1.8-liter LTZ gas model. The LTZ diesel also gets a package called the LTZ Executive Pack, which includes leather trim, satellite navigation, and heated front seats; it starts around £19,295. As a comparison, the Ford Focus currently sells in Britain for £16,000 plus.
Fingers crossed for a North American launch.
