The car that brought electric power into the mainstream, the Volt receives its first comprehensive makeover. Its most compelling asset remains an onboard generator that makes long trips possible and erases any anxiety about running out of juice in the middle of nowhere.

What's New for 2016

The Volt has been completely redesigned.

Choosing Your Chevrolet Volt

The reborn Volt dispenses with the outgoing model's futuristic design in favor of a mainstream contemporary look inside and out. There's now a bench seat in back, so three-across seating is possible in a pinch. Although it has the appearance of a swoopy sedan, the Volt is actually a hatchback -- but the cargo area holds no more than a conventional trunk due to the intrusive lithium-ion battery pack.

The Volt is powered by a pair of electric motors that together produce 149 horsepower. After about 53 miles of driving (up from 38 last year), the gas-powered generator kicks in to keep the motor humming. When the generator is in use, the Volt achieves 42 mpg in combined driving, a gain of 5 mpg. When necessary, the generator will also assist with propulsion, but that's a relatively rare event. As you might expect, the Volt operates in near silence, even under heavy acceleration.

The redesigned Volt is offered in LT and Premier trims:

LT

Comes smartly equipped with automatic climate control, keyless ignition and access, LED headlamps and taillights, the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment interface, and a six-speaker sound system with satellite radio. The LT Comfort package adds heated front seats and mirrors, a heated steering wheel, and (optional) leather upholstery. Audiophiles can upgrade to an eight-speaker Bose sound system. All Volts roll on 17-inch alloy wheels.

Premier

Adds to the basic goodness of the LT with heated rear seats, an automated parking system, a wireless charging pad for your phone, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Exclusive to the Premier are the available Driver Confidence package (blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert) and Driver Confidence 2 package, which adds front collision alert with automatic braking, lane keeping assist, and adaptive headlamps. Navigation is a standalone option on the Premier.

CarsDirect Tip

The LT is attractively priced for what you get, but the lack of available safety technology is a bummer. That makes upgrading to the Premier mandatory for the safety conscious.
