What class of car is a Chevy Cruze?

I’m buying a new car. I would love to get something that’s fuel-efficient but still has a good amount of room for cargo. I was thinking about the Chevy Cruze or something similar. What kind of car is a Cruze?

Great question! Smaller cars are definitely a great option if you’re looking for fuel efficiency, but you’ll need to keep an eye on the cargo space if that’s also important to you.
In terms of the class of car, a
Chevy Cruze
is considered a compact car. It has an excellent fuel rating—a combined city/highway fuel economy of 33 mpg—and a plethora of standard and optional tech features that give it as much substance as it has style.
The Chevy Cruze offers a choice of two engines: a standard 153-horsepower 1.4L turbocharged gas engine or an upgraded 1.6L turbo diesel engine (which can eke out four additional miles per gallon!).
That said, the Cruze is no longer available, but if you’re looking to ride in style while saving money on fuel, the
Chevrolet Spark
is a great contender. Or if you need a bit more space and great versatility, the
Chevy Trailblazer
might fit the bill.
