New Chevrolet Cruze spied

The next-generation Chevrolet Cruze has been caught cold-weather testing in Scandinavia

These are the first pictures of the next-generation Chevrolet Cruze, snapped testing by our spy photographers in northern Scandinavia.

Due in 2015, the Cruze will be completely new from the ground up, with a more aggressive look inspired by the smaller Chevrolet Aveo. Despite this prototype’s disguise, its elongated nose and swept-back headlights can be seen, as can the longer bootlid and rising shoulderline.

The Cruze is expected to use the fresh DX22 modular platform that will underpin the next Chevy Trax and Volt, plus Vauxhall Astra. A new generation of GM turbo engines from 1.0 to 1.5 litres is being co-developed for the Cruze with Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC), and they’ll be shared with future MGs.

"Due in 2015, the Cruze will be completely new from the ground up, with a more aggressive look. . . "

Exactly what we need on the roads - more aggression! (or maybe not).
"...a more aggressive look..." seems to be a common phrase used in new car reviews these days.

It's made in Korea, won't do much help create jobs here.

Leave it South Korea, buy a British made car instead and help give your kids and Grandchildren a future some hope of a future.

Would like to see Nissan, Honda, Toyota, Mini and Land Rover/Jaguar employ more in the UK, than send export our manufacturing base to South Korea.

Don't care if its more aggressive or not, l won't be buying one sending cash off to keep Koreans in employment, and watching out youth unable to find a job in the UK.
