2017 Chevrolet Cruze – Fuel Economy Review + Fill Up Costs

In this episode, we test drive the all new 2017 Chevrolet Cruze Hatch. With its small yet powerful 1.4L Turbo engine and peppy 6-speed automatic, the Cruze offered decent fuel economy numbers without sacrificing the driving experience. Output is rated at 153hp (@5,600rpm) and 177lb-ft (@2,000 – 4,000rpm) – slightly lower than the Civic (158hp) but higher than the Sentra (130hp).
