Chevy Cruze Driver Assist Features
As you travel to work or class, sometimes it’s nice to know you have a second set of eyes on the road to help you get there safely. With the available Driver Confidence packages, drivers in the Chevy Cruze can have that peace of mind.
Smart safety features in the basic package are Rear Park Assist, and Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
