We’ve seen photos of the next-generation D2XX-based Cruze for China on the auto show floor and we’ve seen a dolled-up, prepared photo of the car’s heavily upgraded interior, but we’ve yet to see photos of the car taken up close and personal. Car News China had the chance to pore over the new Cruze recently, and took some high quality photos of the car including from inside the interior and under the hood.
The car is shown in the same color scheme as we’ve seen it before, painted white with a saddle brown interior. Just as in the pre-production photos we saw, the interior appears more upscale and polished. Glossy piano black trim lends to the refined look, as does the subtle chrome trim and new 8-inch color touch screen.
The model brought to the special event was equipped with the range-topping 1.4-liter turbocharged engine producing 148 horsepower 173 lb-ft of torque. A 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine is also available with 113 horsepower and 108 lb-ft.
