Come See the New 2012 Chevy Cruze in Rocky Mount, VA, at Midpoint Chevrolet!
The Chevrolet Cruze has already earned wide praise as America's best conventional gasoline car with its amazing fuel economy and upscale amenities. Now Chevrolet has upped the ante with the 2012 Chevrolet Cruze, adding more standard features and introducing a lower axle ratio to improve upon that fuel economy even more. And you can check out the 2012 Chevy Cruze today in Rocky Mount, VA, at Midpoint Chevrolet, serving customers in Roanoke, Lynchburg, Altavista, Martinsville, Salem and throughout Southwest and Central Virginia.
CRUZE PERFORMANCE & HANDLING
The Cruze's 1.4L turbocharged engine (standard for all trims except the LS) is the ideal size - small yet powerful - designed for efficiency without compromising performance. It delivers 138 horsepower and accelerates with authority. Cruze takes on tight corners with rack-mounted electric power steering and an available race-proven Z-link rear suspension. In fact, Cruze LTZ outcorners the 2011 BMW 328i. It's a driving experience you might not expect in a compact. And that's the point. Cruze has solutions most compacts don't offer. Cruze LS, which sports a 1.8L, 138-hp, 4-cylinder engine and a 6-speed manual transmission, gets an impressive 26 MPG city and 36 MPG highway. Cruze LT also comes standard with 6-speed manual transmission for 2012, with 6-speed automatic transmission optional for both the LS and LT, while the LTZ comes standard with 6-speed automatic transmission. The combination of the 1.4L turbocharged engine, automatic transmission and a revised axle ratio that allows for a 5 percent increase in fuel economy over the 2011 model have pushed the fuel economy for the LT and LTZ to a fantastic 38 MPG highway. And Cruze Eco (with manual transmission) offers a staggering 42 MPG highway - better standard highway fuel economy than what a comparably equipped 2012 Ford Focus, 2011 Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla offer.
CRUZE STANDARD & OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT
The 2012 Chevrolet Cruze has a distinct look that sets it apart from other cars in its class, with details usually reserved for luxury vehicles, like its beveled hood, sharp angles and sculpted fenders. Inside, the generous room and comfort of the Cruze interior belies its compact exterior, with more passenger room and more cargo space than the Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla. The Cruze is designed with 30 distinct acoustical treatments - including a triple-sealed, acoustic-laminated glass windshield - to create a serene interior. Amenities such as remote keyless entry, air conditioning with single zone climate control, AM/FM stereo with CD player and MP3 compatibility, power steering, adjustable steering wheel, power windows, driver information center with trip computer, and front reading lamps come standard on every Cruze.
For 2012, a feature package containing Bluetooth phone connectivity, USB port, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, cruise control, leather-wrapped steering wheel and a leather-wrapped shift knob will be standard on 1LT and Eco models. Other standard and optional equipment for 2012 include keyless start (2LT optional, LTZ standard), touch screen navigation system with 7" color display (Eco, 2LT and LTX optional), 16" five-spoke machined-face alloy wheels (1LT standard), 17" five-spoke alloy wheels with four-wheel disc brakes (2LT standard) and fog lamps (LTZ standard).
Cruze engineers applied the same philosophy to safety that they did to everything else - more. And when you add more safety features, you'd better make room on the mantle for more accolades.
The Cruze is an IIHS "2011 Top Safety Pick" and received a 5-star overall vehicle score for safety from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA). It comes as no surprise when you think of all the safety features packed into Cruze. There are 10 standard air bags to help protect heads, chests and knees, and it's designed with a high-strength steel safety cage and roof-crush resistance that outperforms the requirements. Even better, every Cruze comes protected and connected by OnStar with Directions & Connections Plan - including Automatic Crash Response - standard for the first six months.
