Chevrolet has facelifted the North American version of the Cruze for the 2015 model year with the highlight, if you could call it that, being a divisive split grille treatment. Oh, and 4G LTE internet.
If you can get past the what-were-they-thinking grille the updated Chevrolet Cruze also features LED driving lights on upscale LT and LTZ models. No styling changes have been made to the car’s rear or flanks. Inside, a few buttons have been rearranged and there’s a new design for the cupholders.
The most important change to the Cruze is the availability of an updated entertainment and nav system. The system sports 4G LTE mobile internet connectivity, a Wi-Fi hotspot feature, 7-inch touchscreen, USB ports, and the ability to read aloud text messages; sat nav is an optional extra.
GM will also open up a Chevrolet AppShop down the track for smartphone apps that are directly compatible with its MyLink entertainment system.
