RSS 2015 Chevrolet Cruze refresh adds Malibu's face and upgraded tech

The Chevrolet Cruze has proven to be one of the brand's best-selling cars worldwide with over 2.5-million moved globally since its launch, and for the 2014 New York Auto Show, Chevy is taking an if-it-ain't-broke-don't-fix-it approach to the sedan with a slight exterior refresh and some tech upgrades. This isn't to be confused with the global Cruze that is rumored for the Beijing Motor Show, which rides on a shorter wheelbase.

On the outside, the refresh is limited to some small changes to the front end. The grille has the more angular shape from the Malibu to bring styling in line with its big brother. The LT and LTZ trims also receive LED running lights that are mounted below the headlights.

The infotainment system may be getting the biggest update of the whole car. The system now alerts driver's to text messages and reads them over Bluetooth, and iPhone iOS 6 and 7 users benefit from Siri Eyes Free voice controls. A 4G LTE connection from OnStar allows the car to act as a Wi-Fi hotspot. Finally, the seven-inch touchscreen display has additional USB ports. Later, Chevy is launching an update to support its AppShop service that allows additional features to be downloaded directly.

The interior has some minor styling tweaks as well. The cupholders are reshaped to be more useful. Also, the button layout is slightly altered with the trunk release now on center console and the door lock controls on the doors, instead of the console.

None of these changes are earth shattering, but they at least keep the Cruze competitive in terms of its tech. Scroll down to read the full release about the updates.

Not really liking that front grille for it, think the old one suited it better.

You're all damn picky. I think it's a sharp looking little bugger.

I drove one when I was down in Florida a couple months ago. Its too small for me. I like my big honking Grand Prix

I've driven them as well, they certainly felt smaller than my Accord and Grand Am, but the Galant felt similar. Maybe that's why it didn't bother me too much. :lol:
