Spy photographers have caught the next-generation Chevrolet Cruze wearing a little less camouflage than before, giving us the best look yet at the next-generation compact sedan.
From the photos we can see the entire shape and most of the smaller details of the two-tier grille as well as the shape of the headlights and two lower fog lights. Some of the body lines are now more defined, appearing sharper and more masculine than the relatively soft styling of the outgoing Cruze. The taillights are mostly uncovered and use typical Chevrolet design cues and are now accompanied by a third trunk mounted brake light.
Previous spy shots revealed the interior of the 2016 Cruze, which features a new, larger infotainment screen, a soft-touch dashboard and a new steering wheel.
The second-generation Cruze was initially expected to arrive in the fourth-quarter of this year, but it has since been delayed and is now set for a late 2015 release date. We do know that the new Cruze will ride on GM’s D2XX global vehicle architecture, but what will sit under its hood remains a mystery. Though at the very least, we expect the new Cruze to feature a member of the new Ecotec engine family.
