Seems China is one of the worst places to leave your yet to be launched car uncovered. Yet another car has been undressed before its global unveiling – this time it’s the next-generation Chevrolet Cruze, which is rumoured to make its official debut at Auto China 2014 in Beijing towards the end of April. It certainly matches the spyshots that we’ve seen previously.
This time, the Chevrolet bowtie goes back to being positioned in the upper grille instead of being in the middle of a bar as with recent Chevy models. The front end is sharper and slimmer now, compared to the outgoing Cruze’s bold nose. We also see daytime running lights installed above the foglamp surround.
If you look closely at the rear fender, you’ll see a crease forming a slight pontoon above the rear wheel arch, which gives the Cruze family ties to the current Impala.
We’ve also seen the interior before in spy photos, but since this is not a test mule, the dashboard seen here is a lot cleaner. Like the outgoing car, the new Cruze seems to have a colour-coded interior – this one gets a brown leather wrapped dash to match the leather seats.
How does this new design compare to the original Cruze, in your opinion?
