2016 Chevrolet Volt Review – The new Chevrolet Volt car is out and is being announced as the 2016 model. What has changed for the Volt car and its newest version, the answer is everything. All that was needed to make the car a better version of its previous self was done and executed to perfection. Now we have a much better car that has improved on all of its previous faults and even comes with a 53-mile longer range than before.
The 2016 Chevrolet Volt is the second generation car of the Chevrolet’s electric car lineup. It fixes upon many issues that the car has had with the previous model and extends them to a much better and acceptable range. As the previous generation vehicle had problems with its range, the new one has managed to solve the issue and added some range to the car. It is now a much more capable car than before with a great price and a more fuel efficient EPA rating.
With the new Volt you can go on a trip as the added range enables you to do that. The testing have confirmed it and the car’s higher performance and more powerful engine all add something new to the mix. There is even an option of adding a fifth seat, but that is just for particular use. But with a more crisp look, better handling and performance all the reviews put the Volt into top contention for this year.
2016 Chevrolet Volt Concept
The design and the look of the Chevrolet Volt has been very much reshaped. You cannot have a Chevrolet without a crisp design and this one is certainly something that does that. With pronounced forward-leaning wedge shape that car gets a much more aggressive tone than before. There are some remodeled steep front features and also some steep glass angels. The previous slab sided look has been removed and completely eliminated with the incorporation of a sharply incised side accent which does well to increase the angularity of the vehicle. The front part has been swept back as well and it does so with a pronounced center point. The lights have been carried over but also sweep back to the windshield part as well. Some aggressiveness is achieved with a circuit-diagram pattern grille which is made out of two panels. The rear deck is still high, but is less flat than the previous generation and proposes a plainer design now.
What we can certainly say that we like about the look of the Volt vehicle is that it makes it a more “normal” looking car and more of a Chevrolet than before. Maybe there are many similarities between this and the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze car, as the Volt does borrow some features but not in a drastic sense. The newly modeled car is visibly more imposing and has the characteristics of both a sport vehicle and also a modern one as well, as Chevrolet aims to attract a new fan base with the new design as well.
The interior of the Chevrolet Volt has improved immensely as well. The previous design of the car had many unusual switches, buttons and knobs and an all in all gimmick-like surrounding. Well this time all of it has been improved and the interior of the Chevrolet Volt vehicle is met with much praise. The Volt now uses a twin-cockpit design which has a black theme with silver accents. It is a look which inspires and is much better than the previous color choice. There is an added touch of elegance with the optional two-tone experience as well.
The layout of the dahs and the controls and switches which have been added to it is very intuitive and easy to learn. It can be operated very easily and anyone can learn it and get used to it very fast. There is a new touchscreen which has been added to the center dash which has higher-resolution, is more brighter and has a much more crisp element to it than before. The displays and the technology which was used in the previous Volt vehicle was largely chaotic, but now it is simplified and has a much more elegant display than before.
2016 Chevrolet Volt Performance and Price
As for the powertrain of the new 2016 Chevrolet Volt, it will enable you to make at least 90 percent of your trips using the electric engine alone. The added range provides you with the ability to do so and thus makes the Volt a much better and useful vehicle. Under the hood there is the 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which delivers 101 horsepower at 5600 rpm. It combines with a 192 lithium-ion cells, which is less than the 288 battery that was used previously, but holds at least 8 percent more power as each separate cell of the battery holds more energy than before. With a new 18.4 kilowatt-hours battery that can make a total of 53 miles more than before, and has an EPA rating of 53 miles of electric range. Maybe it does not pose as high es efficiency and fuel ratings like the Prius or even the Ford C-Max, but it can easily be compared with the 2016 Lexus CT.
The premier of the new 2016 Chevrolet Volt is scheduled for next year, but when is the exact release date going to be is still a mystery. We better ride this one out and patiently wait for the Chevrolet to release its data about the exact date. The price on the other hand is available now and you will be able to purchase your new 2016 Volt vehicle at a price of 33,100 USD base MSRP, or 37,200 basw MSRP for the Premier version.
