Chevrolet Cruze VCDi


A new and very economical version of the Chevy Cruze hatchback is available to order in the UK, called the VCDi.

That refers to the engine that powers this car, a 1.7 diesel Developing 130PS and 300Nm of torque. It accelerates from 0-60mph in 9.4 seconds and has a top speed of 124mph. 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. And if you’re wondering about the fuel economy that’s in the 50mpg area.

Available initially in the five-door Cruze, a Station Wagon variant of the 1.7 VCDi model will appear later in 2012. Pricing for this model starts at £16,725.

Trims and specs:

Three trim levels will be available, with equipment identical to comparable models in the Cruze line-up. The entry-level LS, which comes with such features as air conditioning, ESC, remote central locking, follow-me-home headlamps, electrically-adjustable mirrors and electric front windows, is priced at £16,725, while the mid-range LT is £17,825. The range topping LTZ, priced at £18,685, is one of the best-equipped cars in its class, with standard cruise control, 17-inch alloys, auto-dimming mirror, automatic headlights, climate control, rain-sensing wipers and aluminium-effect interior detailing.

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.”
