New diesel engine for Chevrolet Cruze

Chevrolet has introduced a new 1.7-litre VCDi engine to its Cruze line-up.

The fuel efficient and low CO2 engine emits 117g/km and can travel up to 72.4 miles per gallon (based on the combined cycle), and Chevrolet hopes the new engine will give the Cruze a broader appeal to private and fleet drivers.

Chevrolet UK Managing Director Mark Terry said: "The new 1.7 VCDi gives Chevrolet a real opportunity to compete in the core area of the five-door hatchback market, where tax implications, fuel economy and CO2 emissions are critical. Already a hit with private buyers, this new engine gives Cruze a much broader appeal to fleets and really helps underline our commitment to growth in this key business area. With the five-door now established in the market and a Station Wagon imminent, the Cruze range keeps getting better and better, and is just what our customers and dealers are requesting."

Motorists get a choice of three trim levels with the new engine, with kit identical to comparable models in the range.

The entry-level LS, which comes with air conditioning, ESC, remote central locking, follow-me-home headlamps, electrically-adjustable mirrors and electric front windows. While the range-topping LTZ adds cruise control, 17-inch alloys, auto-dimming mirror, automatic headlights, climate control, and rain-sensing wipers.

Available initially in the five-door hatchback Cruze, an estate variant of the 1.7 VCDi model will appear later in 2012.

First deliveries to customers are expected in May.
