Over on Motor Authority, we get a pretty good look at how the design of the next-generation Chevrolet Cruze is shaping, thanks to a fresh set of close-up photos. For one, the front clip takes a lot of inspiration from the Tru 140S concept, with a dash of Chevy Sonic. Meanwhile, we definitely see some miniature Chevy Impala in the back with the way the tail lamps widen outwards.
A quick shot of the interior shows that Chevy is keeping with its ice blue coloring of its gauges, while the shifter is a dead giveaway for a manual transmission. Is this the new Cruze Eco? Perhaps, perhaps not.
We do expect General Motors to offer far more variety with the next-generation Cruze, when it begins launching sometime next year as a 2015 model. Hopefully, this means coupe and hatch variants at the very least.
