The second –generation Chevrolet Cruze is already on Chinese roads where it’s being built. The new Cruze debuted at the Beijing Auto Show in April where only the exterior was showed, but now GM has released images of its interior.
Chevrolet’s flowing signature dual-cockpit design features in the new Cruze, with the cabin described as practical, roomy and comfortable. The sports theme is continued with the three-spoke multi-function leather steering wheel, combined with a dual gauge instrument cluster.
The interior should not be unfamiliar to Cruze owners, as it is more of an evolution of the current model’s cabin, but with a more luxurious touch. The photos appear to depict a top-spec model featuring leather upholstery. Not only the seats feature leather, but also the lower part of the dashboard and door panel. Chrome accents, a piano-black centre console and ice blue ambient lighting add to the interior.
In terms of technology used in the Cruze it features an 8-inch multi-point touch screen and Chevrolet’s MyLink II system with personalised apps which allows customers to get directions, access their contacts, and stream music and images by connecting their smartphones via Bluetooth. Voice control also features on the new Cruze.
According to GM, the 2016 Cruze, set for other parts of the world, should look very similar to the Chinese model.
