The Chevrolet Cruze quickly became the brand’s bestselling vehicle worldwide and the latest model recently landed in China. Officially debuting on July 20th, the new Chevrolet Cruze brings minor design changes for the market. Considering China is the world’s largest automotive market, odds are the Cruze will continue to do well.
Chevrolet touched up the new Cruze for the Chinese market with a few cosmetic changes. The front fascia sees a different design, most noticeable in the hexagonal grille and headlights. Despite cosmetic changes, the wheelbase remains 106.3-inches long.
Essentially the American version of the popular sedan, the new Chevrolet Cruze joins the older model that’s still being sold in China. That leaves the possibility that the new Cruze could be marketed at the Chevrolet Cruze XL. It wouldn’t be the first time a new model was sold alongside an old version. The ninth-generation Chevrolet Malibu, called the Malibu XL in China, was sold alongside the older version as well.
The new Chevrolet Cruze is available in seven trims with pricing ranging from $16,405 to $25,365. Standard features include heated seats, a seven-inch multi-touch color screen, OnStar 4G LTE connectivity with built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, and push-button start.
We here at Nehls Chevrolet are happy to see the new Cruze available in more markets!
