The latest Chevrolet Cruze with the new 1.7 VCDi engine will be on sale in May but the car is available to order now.

With CO2 emissions of just 117g/km, the newcomer qualifies for free road tax for the first year and a benefit-in-kind tax commitment of just 17 per cent. Coupled to Chevrolet’s traditional high specification and keen pricing, that makes the latest Cruze one of the best value five-door family hatchbacks on the road.

There are three trim levels offered with equipment identical to comparable models in the Cruze line-up. The entry-level LS has standard features including air conditioning, ESC, remote central locking, follow-me-home headlamps, electrically-adjustable mirrors and electric front windows, it is priced from £16,725. The mid-range LT is £17,825 and the top of the range LTZ is priced from £18,685. It has cruise control, 17-inch alloys, auto-dimming mirror, automatic headlights, climate control, rain-sensing wipers and aluminium-effect interior detailing all as standard features. Despite its excellent fuel economy, the Cruze 1.7 VCDi offers the kind of performance you wouldn’t expect from a car with such low emissions. Developing 130PS and 300Nm of torque, it accelerates from 0-60mph in 9.4 seconds and has a top speed of 124mph.
