There is information that initially the 2nd family comes with only a single gasoline engine, but in the future the car received a diesel power unit. So far, the engine compartment of the Chevrolet Cruze II has a 1.4-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged power plant, which received an aluminum cylinder block, direct fuel injection into the combustion chamber, Start / Stop technology, phase shifters and a whole range of systems that reduce friction.

As a result, he generates 153 “horses” (240 Nm). The first hundred submits in 8 seconds. With the help of a new unit and well-thought-out aerodynamics, a good efficiency characteristic is ensured – about 5.9 liters per 100 kilometers. The Chevrolet Cruze engine has become much better than its predecessor.


Together with such an “engine”, a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission works. All torque is transmitted to the front wheels.


For their novelty, American experts decided to use the new GM front-wheel drive platform, called the D2. It has become 113 kilograms less, but the rigidity of the body has increased by 27 percent due to the use of hot stamping steel in its structure.

The front part received an aluminum spring suspension with McPherson struts, and the rear part received a twisting beam (“younger” versions), a beam with a Watt mechanism (“older” versions). The car is controlled by an electric amplifier. The brake system of the 2nd generation Chevrolet Cruze received disc mechanisms on all wheels (front ventilated). Anti-lock braking system and electronic stabilization technology are supported.

  • Ten airbags;
  • ABS systems and exchange rate stability;
  • New StabiliTrak system that prevents the machine from tipping over;
  • Technology that prevents frontal collisions.

In addition, a team of engineers has provided folding pedals and a steering column, which increases the safety of the legs of the driver and the passenger sitting next to him during a collision. Also, due to the increased rigidity of the body, the passive safety of riders has improved.
