Chevrolet is gearing up to sell its Cruze compact car in China, and the brand has released photos showing the car’s new interior.
The new innards of the Cruze seem to borrow many cues from the redesigned 2014 Chevy Impala, including the arching dashboard and center stack design.
According to GM Shanghai, young Chinese buyers are looking for more upscale cars with special attention to detail, so GM uses elements like saddle brown leather with contrast stitching in the new Cruze to give it an air of luxury. An eight-inch touchscreen also helps the upscale feeling, and is equipped with Chevy’s latest MyLink infotainment setup. Piano black trim, chrome accents and blue ambient lighting are also fitted.

Some small physical changes come to car itself. The cowl has been pushed forward and the roof curve now extends backwards in an attempt to add spaciousness to the cabin. The rear-seat knee room is also class leading according to Chevy.
When the new Cruze arrives in the US, don’t be surprised to see many of these same interior design cues.
