Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 36 - 51 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Servicing costs should be modest, and depreciation won't be particularly harsh, so the Cruze should be relatively cheap to keep on the road. No super-efficient versions available, although the diesels should be capable of 50mpg.

No special 'green' versions of the Cruze are available, and while the 1.6-litre petrol and the 2.0-litre diesel versions have respectable figures for CO2 emissions at 159g/km and 149g/km respectively, they aren't especially low.

No major problems are expected with the Cruze. Its engines and gearboxes are used in a variety of other cars and are well developed.
