About ChevroletÂ Cruze
The Chevrolet CruzeÂ is aÂ range ofÂ compact passenger carsÂ thatÂ currently consistsÂ of a four-door sedan and five-door hatchback. It slotsÂ above the Chevrolet Spark city car and subcompactÂ Chevrolet SonicÂ and below theÂ midsizeÂ Chevrolet MalibuÂ and full-sizeÂ Chevrolet Impala. The current model was introduced for the 2016Â model year and represents the secondÂ generation of the CruzeÂ nameplate.Â It rides on theÂ GM D2 platformÂ shared with the second-generationÂ Chevrolet VoltÂ andÂ Buick VeranoÂ (in China).
Compared to its first-generation predecessor, the second-gen modelÂ is an all-new vehicle that is slightly larger, sleeker and more modern.Â The first-generation Cruze familyÂ was producedÂ in sedan, hatchback, and wagon body styles, but only theÂ sedan was available in North America. By comparison, the second-generation model is available only as a sedan and hatchback. Though a wagon variant of the second-gen modelÂ was never produced,Â the hatchback modelÂ becameÂ available in North America. TheÂ second-generation Cruze received a midcycle enhancement, otherwise known as a facelift, refresh or update, for the 2019 model year that consists ofÂ updated exterior styling, a new Chevrolet infotainment system, and new interior colors.
The Cruze is producedÂ across the followingÂ GM plantsÂ globally:
- GMÂ Lordstown plantÂ inÂ Lordstown, Ohio, USA assembling the Cruze sedanÂ supplying North America
- GM Ramos plantÂ in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico assembling the Cruze hatchs upplying North America
- GM Rosario plantÂ in ArgentinaÂ assembling the Cruze sedan and Cruze hatch (called Cruze6) supplying Latin America
- GM Norsom II plant in China assembling the Cruze sedan andÂ Cruze hatchbackÂ satisfying China
- GM Gunsan plantÂ in South KoreaÂ supplying Eurasia as Holden Astra Sedan (thisÂ facilityÂ was closedÂ in 2018, and Cruze productionÂ no longer takes place here)
In November 2018, General Motors announced that it will discontinue the Chevrolet Cruze, along with five otherÂ passengers cars. The move will see the vehicle discontinued globally, while resulting in the idling of the Lordstown plant in Warren, Ohio. The model is set to be discontinued in the first quarter of 2019.

Too bad GM doesn’t offer the Cruze with a decent engine.
“Dead man walking.” Isn’t this kind of a waste of space?
Deadwood vs oak wood?
I’m fortunate and thrilled to be a new Cruze owner now. I bought a 2019 LS sedan Oakwood Metallic with the convenience package (16″alloy wheels, a lot better than 15″, cruise control, steering wheel controls, and remote start). The Cruze is hands down the best looking car on the road. Could it be better? Of course. Another plus is this car is made in America (the hatch model in Mexico), it doesn’t have a CVT (like Subaru, Honda, etc.), and it doesn’t have major quality issues and recalls like Hyundai, and doesn’t catch on fire while driving like Kia. Yes the engine is small, but the Cruze is not a race car. It gets down the road good enough. Bottom line.
You must look at a lot of boring cars if the Cruze is “the best looking car on the road”
I looked at all of them. I don’t see you mentioning any, just criticizing my comment.
The color is hideous… But for some reason, these pictures remind me that I really like the looks of the car. I don’t know that it’s better than the model it replaced (except for the doing away of the fishhook/generic-cartoon-villain-mustache lower fascia), but it’s sharp. The Cruze really has been a great car, overall… It’s too bad what they’re doing with it; I wish they would keep it, and end the Sonic and Spark, instead. Or move its production somewhere else.
Something… As I understand, it’s still not the worst-selling car on the road, and it’s been such a great victory for American car makers. I hate to see it go, especially after a pretty decent refresh. It’s kind of sad.
