The Chinese arm of General Motors, Shanghai GM, has revealed the interiors of the next-generation Chevrolet Cruze which was unveiled at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show.
The new Cruze’s interior is based on Chevrolet’s flowing dual cockpit design. It has a three-spoke leather multi-function steering wheel, dual gauge instrument cluster, 8-inch touchscreen display with built-in applications and Chevrolet’s MyLink II system which allows customers to get directions, access their personal contacts and stream music and images using their smartphone via Bluetooth. Voice controls can be used to access features like hands-free calling.
Chevrolet claims that the car’s interior space has been expanded by moving the cowl forward and extending the curve of the roof. The downsizing of the engines has also helped in increasing the interior space.
Chevrolet’s target customers for the Cruze are the youth.
