Scoop: We Uncover the 2015 Chevrolet Cruze's Interior

If we had to use one word to describe the next generation of the Chevrolet Cruze based on what we know and have seen up until now, we would go for more ‘character’ – okay, that’s two words, but you get what we mean.

We already established this about the compact model’s sharper exterior through spy shots and from Carscoops’ rendering of what we think the final product will look like, and now we can say something along the same lines about the interior, thanks to these revealing scoops.

Our photographer was able to get mighty close to a development prototype snagging the sedan’s newly designed dashboard with what appears to be stitched leather surfaces on the fascia and lower parts. The design of the instrument panel and center console are fresh in a familiar, yet more elegant kind of way

Other notable features seen on this particular prototype’s cabin are the many chrome accents used throughout the interior, the new multifunction steering wheel, a larger (touch?) screen on the top section of the center console, a six-speed manual, plus buttons for “eco” mode, park assist sensors and what looks like a lane departure system.

While GM had originally planned to launch the new Delta platform-based Cruze late next year, a recent report said that the Detroit automaker has pushed the date back to 2015 (possibly with a 2016MY designation).
