In a remarkably retro festive atmosphere, North American Chevrolet presented the Cavalier 2018, a model that debuted just last September at the Auto Show in Chengdu, China. Revive an important name for the brand and aims to fill the gap that exists between Sonic and Cruze. Also, the arrival of this model from China represents a watershed in the deep reconfiguration of the origin of production for the Mexican market in the low range of Chevrolet in the coming months.
The new Chevrolet Cavalier 2018 features a small 1.5-liter propeller with 107 hp and 104 lb-ft of torque associated with five-speed manual transmissions or a six-speed automatic with manual mode. The traction by its position is to the frontal axis and the suspension geometry is forward McPherson and of torsion bar behind.
As for the equipment and depending on the version, the Cavalier offers multifunction steering wheel, air conditioning, sunroof, leather-lined seats with genuine leather inserts, glass and electric locks. While on the connectivity side we find a 7 "screen with Chevrolet MyLink system that offers Bluetooth interface with streaming audio function and MirrorLink among other functions, although it misses the compatibility for Apple Carplay and Android Auto. The available ports are: USB, Aux in and Micro SD.
The Cavalier does not offer details that would be appreciated by consumers as a steering wheel with depth adjustment and also leather-lined, as well as an automatic climate control zone, folding backrest and intelligent key start system.
As for safety, the entry version offers ABS and front airbags, while the intermediate adds ESP and Hill Start Assist. Finally, the more-named Premier adds 2 airbags for a total of four, tire pressure monitor and disc brakes on the rear axle. Again it would be good that all versions have at least 4 bags and ESP, while a negative aspect we found was the absence of headboard for the central square of the rear bench.
One of the objectives of the Cavalier 2018 is to be a family car, so the space for rear occupants is quite good, also the trunk is 405 liters and although it is far from the largest in the category, there is enough space for the luggage of the whole family.
