2016 Chevy Cruze
2016 Chevy Cruze Release Date, Diesel, Price, Interior – Once more, the American automobile giants-Chevrolet are gearing up to unleash the brand new 2016 Chevy Cruze. This gracefully designed sedan will come with some of the best features and technological improvements of the decade.
This next generation vehicle is scheduled for release very soon and the auto maker has already announced that there will be two versions, the first one will be heading to North America and the other will go to China.
Despite the different locations, the two models will not have any major differences in performance and overall designs. The new 2016 Chevy Cruze will come with sleeker lines which will give it more aerodynamic composure which will result in better fuel economy ratings and better stability whilst on the road.
The vehicle will be ‘versatile’ in performance and will be suitable for different kinds of global markets. The Cruze will significantly retain the Chevrolet design while still embracing new and modern features and specs.
2016 Chevy Cruze exterior
The new 2016 Chevy Cruze will come with some modifications but not total overhauls to its parts. This is attributed to the fact that the auto maker would not want to upset the impressive sales records of the model which is by far the best selling coupe on General Motors Chevrolet line-up.
However, the new 2016 Chevy Cruze will be modernized and will come with chock-a-block features. It will come riding on the same platform which is the GM’s Delta II platform which will be attributed to some changes which we will later see in this review.
The coupe’s body will be four doors. The overall design will be modern and dynamic at the same time. The grille will be magnificently sculpted and will come decorated in chrome strips. The headlights will be sloping backwards and will come equipped with high quality LED technology for better night vision.
The lower part of the front fascia bears the twin fog lights which will also come in LED technology and will prove useful during stark weather conditions. The mirrors and locks will donned in the same colour as the exterior.
The posterior end will also get some few redesigns, it will come refreshed with modern designs.
