The current generation Chevrolet Cruze is likely to get some minor updates for 2016 while an all-new car is expected to arrive in 2017. The updates are expected to be in terms of cosmetics and a revised feature list.
The cosmetic updates include a larger grille with honeycomb mesh and projector headlamps with LED DRLs.
The rear too gets some styling updates in the form a revised bumper and tail lamp cluster. Inside, this updated Cruze will be offered with the same MYLINK infotainment system found on the Trailblazer SUV. This touchscreen system in addition to all the standard features includes Bluetooth connectivity and a reverse parking camera.
Under the hood, the Cruze will continue to be powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine that produces 168bhp and 380Nm of torque. Power is sent to the front-wheels via a six-speed MT or AT. When launched, the Cruze will compete with the Skoda Octavia, Hyundai Elantra, Volkswagen Jetta and the Toyota Corolla.
