Scoop: 2015 Chevrolet Cruze Sedan Spotted For the First Time

It’s no secret that the Chevrolet Cruze has been a critical success for General Motors in a very competitive segment, not only in the States, but worldwide as well, having sold nearly two million unit since its launch in 2008. However, GM isn’t resting on its laurels as it has already began work on a replacement model that was captured testing by our scoop photographers in Europe.

While still in an early development stage, the prototype suggests that the next Cruze will have a sharper looking design with a more aggressively styled green house and a lower front end sporting Chevy’s new face.

Under the skin, it was recently reported by Reuters that the next Cruze will be the first vehicle to use a new General Motors global platform that could eventually underpin nearly 2.5 million compact sedans and crossovers a year by 2018. The platform will be shared with several other mainstream vehicles from GM’s lineup including the successors to the Chevrolet Volt and Opel / Vauxhall Astra.

Aside from the sedan model seen here, the Cruze will also be offered in other body styles including an estate (not the one seen in these pictures and which is the Opel Insignia facelift) and a compact hatchback.

According to GM sources, the new Cruze will arrive in the market in fall of 2014 as a 2015 model.
