The all-new Chevrolet Cruze isn’t expected to launch for another year or so after a reported delay, but from the latest spy shots, it seems everything is going just fine. And the latest prototype 2016 Cruze photographed driving in the cold white north shows something we haven’t seen before: a finished tail lamp design.
From the looks of things, the lights incorporate an LED setup, with the yellow indicator lights fixated above the angular red brake lights. Looks aggressive, and definitely different from what we see today with the larger, jeweled look of the 2014 Cruze. We’re also noticing a shortened rear decklid, giving the D2xx Cruze more of a fastback look than before, and kind of similar to today’s Volt. This leads us to believe that the shape was sculpted this way for aerodynamic purposes, as the Volt has the lowest drag coefficient in Chevy’s stable outside of the Corvette.
