The Corollas, Lauras and the Jettas may be gunning for each other’s throat for supremacy but there is one car which exists in a league of its own and manages to take away quite a few customers from the above mentioned cars. It is the Chevrolet Cruze. The car has something which its competition lacks. 167 horses at the disposal of your left foot every time you get your car on the streets. The car has been quite a successful car for Chevrolet and has sold around 2 million units since it first broke cover in 2008 globally.
Our friends back at Carscoop have published the spyshots of the next generation of this powerful sedan and the spyshots suggest that the car will get a lot sharper in its next generation and will get styled all the more aggressively. The next generation 2014 Chevrolet Cruze spyshots appear to be of an initial prototype but the prototypes are made once a design is finalized. The car will get a lower front end in its next generation which will lend all the more character to the car.
The Cruze’s underpinnings in its next generation are expected to be used on other Chevy cars as well and the platform will be used by GM to produce around 2.5 million Compact Sedans and Crossovers by the time the year 2018 ends. The Cruze will also get an estate variant and its underpinnings will also be the ones to be used for the next generation Chevy Volt and Opel / Vauxhall Astra. The next generation Cruze is expected to break cover in 2014 and will hit the roads in early 2015 as per GM sources so we will pretty much wait till then and expect more spyshots to come in soon as well.
The car has been in the market for 5 odd years and the car has been given refreshes twice by GM in India. The first refresh came in the form of interiors getting updated and the next update added 20 horses to car’s engine capacity. The company realizes that the competition has started to look better than their offering and the design even though quite aggressive is bog similar to the one that was present on the it when it first made its way to Indian shores and the future might see the mean car get all the more meaner.
