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 39 - 72 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.

The best way of keeping down Chevrolet Cruze Station Wagon running costs is by opting for the 1.7-litre diesel car. This version of the estate is capable of averaging 62.7mpg, according to the manufacturer. With a five year/100,000 mile warranty servicing costs should be kept to a minimum and Chevrolet dealerships aren’t overly expensive when it comes to servicing costs.

The main point about the Chevrolet Cruze is that the purchase price is quite low. That means that even if its ownership costs turn out to be higher than rivals, the difference will be offset by your initial saving.

Similar to the fuel economy stats, Chevrolet Cruze Station Wagon emissions output is lowest on the 1.7-litre diesel model. This version of the spacious estate has CO2 emissions of 119g/km. This is accomplished with the help of stop/start technology. This does mean it makes sense as a company car, especially with the low P11d value of the car. While Cruze emissions are fairly low however, resulting in affordable road tax costs, its emissions aren’t quite as low as many of its rivals

With the majority of engines and components used across a number of models in the manufacturer’s range, Chevrolet Cruze Station Wagon reliability should be pretty sound. Any small niggles in the first few years should be covered by the extensive warranty too. High mileage ex-rental or ex-company estates could have had a hard life so these may be more susceptible to bigger mechanical issues as well as additional cosmetic wear and tear.
