JOLIET, Ill., May 10, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The rising cost of gasoline is a major purchase decision for those looking to buy a new vehicle in today's market. While many hybrid cars are available, there are other choices of very efficient, non-electrified cars available, such as the 2012 Chevy Cruze Eco. While the Cruze Eco does not have electric assistance, it still achieves class-leading fuel economy while retaining the same performance and features of the non-Eco models. Great features, a comfortable interior and a high level of safety and technology await drivers of the 2012 Chevy Cruze Eco in Joliet, IL.
Design-wise, the Cruze Eco looks very similar to the Cruze sedan, but actually the front is slightly different. The reason for this is that the Eco's front end used technology found during the testing of the Chevy Volt and features new aerodynamic enhancements not found in the Cruze sedan. The grille of the Cruze Eco has more blocked sections that open during city driving to increase engine cooling and close at highway speeds to reduce aerodynamic drag.
Another reason that the Eco is more fuel-efficient is the fact that it weighs less. This has occurred due to reducing the length and thickness of sheet metal in parts of the vehicle by only .1 mm while still maintaining structural integrity. The 17-inch ultra-low rolling resistance Goodyear tires help a lot as well. The changes made to this vehicle reduce the aerodynamic drag immensely and aid the car to become the most fuel-efficient gas powered/non-hybrid car in the country.
Driving the Cruze Eco is more fun than any customer could've imagined. The six-speed manual and 1.4-liter turbocharged engine offer plenty of quickness and power. The six-speed manual transmission will bring the best fuel economy of 28 mpg in the city and 42 mpg on the highway, the class leader. An automatic transmission is available as well and still has optimal fuel economy of 39 mpg on the highway.
The interior design and features are exactly what you would expect in a modern day Chevrolet. The car has LED lights throughout and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Power controls on everything adorn the car and the seats are bolstered and comfortable. There is even a scoring system located near the speedometer to show how well the driver is doing on fuel economy. OnStar, satellite radio and tons of standard safety features are also included in this fine vehicle.
