Chevrolet will officially pull the wraps off of the 2015 Cruze this week at the New York Auto Show. It may not be the all-new 2016 Cruze some of us have been waiting on, but the current car could use a bit of a redesign, so we’ll accept this new facelifted model with open arms.
The most obvious change to the 2015 Cruze comes in the way of its grille and front fascia. As you can see, it now uses a two-tier grille which is similar to that of the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu. In LT and LTZ trims, the front fascia also features LED running lights located beneath the headlights.
From the front bumper backward, the new Cruze remains relatively unchanged. The biggest revisions come in the way of the car’s upgraded infotainment system, which can now be equipped with General Motors’ 4G LTE connection from OnStar. It can also now read text messages aloud through Bluetooth or Siri Eyes Free and with an update, will be able to accommodate Chevy’s AppShop service.
There are other small changes, too. The cupholders have been revised to be more useful, there is a trunk release button on the center console and the door-lock switches have been moved to a more conventional spot on the front doors. So with these changes in mind, tell us, is the 2015 Chevrolet Cruze Hot or Not?
