The current-generation Chevrolet Cruze is not a bad car, but all good things must end. Though, from what Chevrolet says, the 2016 Cruze will only build on what has made this current Chevy Cruze a top-seller for the brand.
Chevrolet has served us the first official teaser for the 2016 Cruze, and announced current Cruze sales have surpassed 3.5 million units sold.
“When we introduced the Cruze it replaced 15 other compact vehicles around the globe,” said Alan Batey, president, General Motors North America and global Chevrolet brand chief. “By consolidating design, engineering and marketing efforts, we were able to produce an award-winning, value-driven sedan that won over customers around the world.”
But it’s time to up the ante, according to Chevrolet. And they’re ready to deliver.
Following the latest engineering trend, the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze will be larger, yet, shed pounds in the name of fuel economy. Chevrolet says new powertrains, technology and safety features will “bring a higher level of sophistication to the compact car segment.”
Consumers have many choices when considering compact cars, and the all-new 2016 Cruze should arrive with plenty to cater to the compact-car consumer, rounding out Chevrolet’s 25 new technologies to be introduced in 2015. This includes being one of the first Chevrolet models to feature Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support.
With the introduction of the 2016 Cruze on June 24, it will join four other Chevrolet to have been unveiled this year, and will keep 95 percent of Chevrolet’s lineup less than three years old.
