2015 Chevrolet Cruze gets a facelift and new connectivitySun, 13 Apr 2014 00:00:00 -0700
The 2015 facelift for the Chevrolet Cruze Saloon
With the New York Auto Show looming this month, Chevrolet has revealed a facelift for the Cruze for the 2015 MY, although it’s unlikely the UK will see it. With GM trying to make sense of its European operations, it plans to drop the Chevrolet brand from the UK and Europe and concentrate on VAuxhall and Opel, so it seems likely the updates to the Cruze will be just of academic interest to buyers on this side of the Pond.
Cosmetically, the changes are not huge for the Cruze saloon with the usual fodder of titivated lights (the addition of LED running lights on high-end models), a tweaked front end and some new colour choices.
Inside, the 2015 Cruze gets some new switchgear and new cupholders, but the biggest changes are to its connectivity with a 7″ colour screen, Siri eyes free, Chevrolet Apps, Bluetooth with text message alerts and 4G wireless with a wi-fi hotspot.
Engine options for the States appear to be the same – a 2.0 litre diesel and a 1.4 turbo and 1.8 petrol – but there’s no mention of the 1.7 litre diesel the Cruze saloon gets in the UK. But that’s no surprise as we almost certainly won’t get the updated Cruze.
The 2015 Chevrolet Cruze saloon debuts at the New York Auto Show later this month and goes on sale in the US later in 2014.
