2019 Chevrolet Cruze Review

from the expert editorial team

What Is the 2019 Chevrolet Cruze?

The Chevrolet Cruze is a compact car available in sedan and hatchback body styles. A 153-horsepower, turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder gas engine is standard, and a 137-hp, turbo-diesel 1.6-liter engine is available. A six-speed automatic is standard with the gas engine and a nine-speed automatic works with the diesel. The Cruze competes with the Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra, Nissan Sentra and Toyota Corolla.

What’s New on the 2019 Chevrolet Cruze?

The front end has a new look with a larger grille and new headlamps. A six-speed manual transmission is no longer offered with the Cruze's gas or diesel engine. The new Chevrolet Infotainment 3 multimedia system is standard and comes with a 7-inch touchscreen.

What Features in the 2019 Chevrolet Cruze Are Most Important?

Standard equipment includes 4G LTE internet access with a Wi-Fi hot spot (data trial included) and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity. Though interest in diesels is minimal these days, those who want higher fuel economy have that option. A backup camera is standard, but forward collision alert and low-speed automatic emergency braking is available only on the high-end Premier trim level.

Should I Buy the 2019 Chevrolet Cruze?

The Cruze offers a choice of body styles and gas or diesel engines, and it comes with standard multimedia features many buyers desire. Rivals such as the Honda Civic and Kia Forte offer more safety features on lower-priced versions and better overall value. The Cruze is worth a look but shop the competition before buying.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
