While crossovers and SUVs are gaining popularity in America, Europe is still obsessed with compact cars. When you look at the benefits of small cars, they have good reason. If you can let go of a need for massive towing power and maximum space, these upsides to small cars might win you over.
If you want to save the most at the gas tank, a small car is the way to go. A 2018 Chevrolet Cruze can offer a whopping 52 mpg highway* with its available turbo-diesel engine. You won’t find that kind of mileage in a crossover or SUV.
Not only can a small car save you money at the gas tank, but it can save you money at the initial purchase as well. Small cars are often the most affordable of a manufacturer’s lineup, making them great choices for young drivers or any shopper on a budget.
Fun to Drive
With modern, peppy engines entering the compact car segment, and small, nimble designs, small cars are generally lots of fun to drive. They can take swift turns and fit into tight parking spaces with ease. If you’ve been used to driving an SUV or even a large car, you may be pleasantly surprised by the difference in feel.

New Standard Technology
Every trim of the 2019 Chevrolet Cruze will be equipped with a new version of the Chevrolet infotainment system, called Chevrolet Infotainment 3. The versatile system will connect passengers will a wide range of entertainment and tools for driving. It will come in a standard 7-inch color touchscreen and encourage drivers to keep their eyes on the road while still connecting them to navigation and music.

Chevy’s Road Trip Coming To You
Have you dreamed of seeing the entire country by car? Now’s your chance with Chevy’s road trip, designed in conjunction with data scientist Randy Olson. The trip takes you through all 48 contiguous United States (you’ll have to get to Alaska and Hawaii some other time) with an exciting stop in each state, including theme parks, national parks, and famous landmarks.
All Across America
The trip covers 13,389 miles of American roadways and would take roughly 214.56 hours—that’s nine days—of pure driving. But since you will probably want to stop to eat, sleep, and use the rest room (and fill up at the gas station and get some oil changes), the trip will likely take you much longer. In fact, with each of the 48 planned stops and your own detours to see family, friends, and travel destinations you’ve always dreamed of, you should probably plan for at least a month on the road.
Shared Memories With The Family
“Road trips are about creating shared memories and quality time with family and friends,” remarked Steve Majoros, director of marketing, Chevrolet Cars and Crossovers. “And when on the road, travelers can trust Chevrolet vehicles to help get them where they’re going reliably. Chevy is now the only brand to earn J.D. Power Dependability Awards for cars, trucks and SUVs three years in a row.”
Whether you plan to tackle all of Chevy’s road trip or just a portion near us in Pennsylvania, make sure to get your routine maintenance done first at H&H Chevrolet in Shippensburg, PA.

All Chevrolet trucks are crafted with a century’s worth of engineering and design expertise.
