A Look Inside The Next Chevrolet Cruze

The next Chevrolet Cruze – at least the one sold in China – will be getting a snazzy new interior.

Along with new Ecotec engines and a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, the Cruze will get a heavily revised cabin, which looks miles ahead of the interior in our current Cruze. From the looks of it, this is one Chinese car that would be a welcome addition to the GM lineup in the United States.

    Its like someone took one of my shoes and designed a whole car interior around it, not impressed, at least it isn't gray though. The center console design is a mess though, the important buttons and knobs are undersized and shaped weirdly, while the dash directs your attention to twit and facebook your friends, forgetting the traffic ahead. I wouldn't care if the interior was still hard plastic like a stereotypical GM (seriously do people regularly massage their car interiors now?), its the design and odd shapes that bug me.

      @Old Man Pants Helps that its largely built from Daewood bits. I had the chance to pick of a Daewood VCR, wonder how many bits they re-used from their VCRs to their GM platforms.

    I like it! The seats would look much better with black inserts in them however. Overall this is SO much better then most interiors (especially GMs & Dodges) that are normally just a blanket of black or grey with random fake bits of silver or wood in them. My 350Z is all black bore-fest inside, however at least its silver bits are REAL metal.

  • Probert No, they're not the future. BEV sales are growing every year, and, along with sound energy policy, result in cleaner air, lower CO2, foreign policy not based on oil, and will continue to drive like a smooth powerful nearly silent turbine. Some 19% of new car sales in 2023 were BEVs - this will continue.

  • Redapple2 Love/lust a 110 diesel defender. Should buy one since the INEOS is gas only (and double the price). Had a lightweight in Greece. Wonder how this rides.
  • Ajla There is inventory on the ground but as pointed out it is generally high dollar trims of high-dollar models and at least around here dealers still aren't budging off their mandatory nitrogen tires and Summer weather protection packages.You aren't paying '21-'22 prices anymore but it's still a long way to go.
