Chevrolet Cruze gets greener engine

A new 1.7 VCDi engine has been introduced to the Chevrolet Cruze line-up.

The new model, which goes on sale in May, has low CO2 emissions of 117g/km which means free road tax for the first year.

Three trim levels will be available, with equipment identical to comparable models in the Cruze line-up. The entry level LS has features such as air conditioning, follow-me-home headlamps and electric mirrors and is priced at £16,725. The range-topping LTZ comes with cruise control, 17-inch alloys, auto-dimming mirrors and climate control and is proced at £18,685.

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."

The 1.7 VCDi accelerates from 1-60mph in 9.4 seconds and has a top speed of 124mph.

Available initially in the five-door Cruze, a Station Wagon variant of the 1.7-litre model will appear later in 2012.
