2017 Chevy Cruze Hatchback Priced From $22,190

Chevrolet’s all-new 2017 Cruze hatch is set to hit US dealerships this fall with prices starting at $22,190 without tax, title and other dealer fees.

The price tag is for the entry-level LT model, but customers willing to pay extra of the RS package will get to enjoy unique front and rear fascias, rocker panels, rear spoiler, fog lamps and 18″ wheels.

While sharing its Ecotec 1.4-liter turbocharged unit and driving characteristics with the 4-door model, the Cruze hatch boasts up to 42 cubic feet (1,189 liters) of cargo space with the rear seats folded. Also like its sedan sibling, it’s the most connected car in its segment, according to Chevrolet.

Systems such as 4G LTE with Wi-Fi hotspot, Teen Driver, wireless charging, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are among its best features and safety tech like the Lane Keep Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Park Assist set it apart from the likes of the Corolla or the Civic – as the American automaker pointed out back when the 5-door Cruze made its debut in Detroit earlier this year.

There are currently less expensive 5-door hatchbacks available to US customers, like the KIA Forte5 ($18,090) or the Scion iM ($19,995), though they don’t come with as many standard features as the entry-level Cruze LT – which can hardly be called “entry-level” seen as how Chevrolet could have positioned another three trim levels beneath the LT, as they did with the saloon version.
