Chevy has just added a new model to its Cruze lineup: a new Clean Turbo Diesel version. However, it looks like at the same time the company is also working on the next-generation Cruze.
Even though the prototype caught testing here is heavily camouflaged, you can see that it looks much sleeker than the model it will replace. This impression is offered by a new and more rounded front end that will offer revised headlights. Additionally, the grille will be set a little bit lower than the current model and the hood-to-front fascia seam is higher. The rear also seems to be slightly longer, the lip on the trunk is a little more pronounced and the taillights will likely be completely redesigned – evident by the heavy camo on them. Also, it looks like the door handles now sit higher up on the door.
The next-generation Cruze will also be the first model built on General Motor’s new platform, which is internally called D2xx. The same platform will also be used for the next-generation Volt and Equinox among others.
We expect to see some updates under the hood too, with the biggest changes being made to lower the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
