The 2021 Chevy Cruze is a top compact car in our rankings. It has some really great features, like an easy ride and good gas mileage.

The debut of the second-generation Chevrolet Cruze in the United States took place on June 25, 2016. The car has grown in size, acquired modified electronics, received a new power unit and began to look more modern.

In general, the new Chevrolet Cruze looks much more dynamic and aggressive than its predecessor. The radiator grille with cells, arrow-shaped headlights, rapid contours give the car’s appearance lightness and grace.

The base for the Chevrolet Cruze will be a 1.4-litre turbocharged gasoline engine. It produces 153 horsepower at 5600 rpm and is capable of accelerating the car to a hundred in 8.5 seconds.

In the basic configuration of the Chevrolet Cruze, the engine will be paired with a six-speed manual transmission, but it can also be equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission, with which the declared consumption on the highway will be 5.8 litres per hundred kilometres.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has given the 2019 Cruze an overall safety rating of five out of five stars, with five stars in the frontal and side crash tests and four stars in the rollover test.

This popularity is reflected by IIHS: The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave it a 5-star rating – Good — on both exams they conducted, while its Front Crash Prevention System only merits a Basic rating.

The Cruze has many good qualities for a small car. We recommend it to drivers who need power and can’t get around town in a sports car.

The Cruze seats five people in two rows. The interior of the cabin is attractive and incorporates soft-touch materials. Front seats are comfortable, with enough legroom for most adults. Headroom is also good in both rows of seats but due to the sloping roofline, there’s less headroom backseat.

One thought on “Chevy Cruze Transmission Fluid Capacity

  1. Would you have a diagram of how to fill transmission fluid. I have a JG manual Cruze and can’t find the fill point. It is the GM Daewoo gearbox. I know I have to remove gearbox sump to drain but I can’t figure out how to fill. Most videos show a screw cap but that seems to be 2012 build on wards. I have a 2010 build. Thanks
