DETROIT – Pricing for the new 2016 Chevrolet Cruze will start at $17,495 when it goes on sale next spring, General Motors Co. announced Wednesday.

Suggested retail pricing for all models is:

  • L manual – $17,495
  • LS manual – $18,995
  • LS automatic – $19,995
  • LT automatic- $21,995
  • Premier automatic – $23,995.

The redesigned and re-engineered Cruze will offer features including standard Chevrolet MyLink radio with a 7-inch-diagonal screen, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, subject to their terms, privacy statements and data plan rates as well as a compatible smartphone. OnStar 4G LTE with a Wi-Fi hotspot and a standard rear-vision camera are also available.

Other active safety features are available depending on the model. They include side blind zone alert, rear cross traffic alert, lane keep assist and forward collision alert.
