Looking a little bit softer and decidedly more upscale than the interior of the 2014 Chevy Cruze diesel I took on a thousand mile test drive last fall, the interior of the upcoming 2016 Chevy Cruze cuts the button-count down, improves the infotainment experience considerably with the addition of GM/OnStar’s Gen10 infotainment hardware, and ups the airbag count even higher than before (probably).
The newest version of the Chevy Cruze bowed earlier this year in China, which gets “our” 2016 Chevy Cruze – along with “our” 2016 Chevy Sonic – a year early. So, while the photos of the new “butterfly shaped” interior are probably 90-95% indicative of what we’re going to get once the newest Cruze lands, stateside, take everything written about the new Chevys (here, or otherwise) with a grain or two of salt. For now.
What do you guys think? Is the new look and new interior going to be enough to put the 2016 Cruze on top of the ultra-competitive compact car segment, or will Chevy need a few more tricks to take the compact crown away from the Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic? Take a look at these pics, then let us know what you think in the comments. Enjoy!
