Exhaust pipe is invisible, what a sad, but it might mean there will be a sporty version in the future.

    the exterior of this Chinese version looks a little too soft, like a Prius. however, at least it looks a hell of a lot better than the terrible, old-hat US version. see: http://jalopnik.com/2015-chevrolet-cruze-this-is-actually-it-1562868423

      The “U.S. version” was one of the bestselling cars around and best model for GM for a while. And it was the EXACT SAME lookung in every market!!!

      While looks are subjective, the U.S. Cruze was loved a lot judging by the sakes numbers (all that matters), so you are in the minority.

      “Old hat”??? Of course this should look better since it is 5 years NEWER! “Terrible”? See global sales numbers to see how wrong you are. Again, the U.S version was the same as the international version minus a few tweaks here and there for country-specifc needs.

      The U.S. version is not out until late thus year or early next year becayse they are upgrading from the simple Chinese one.

    Is this based on the MG6?

    The U.S. Cruze was already a smash hit in the samples department for GM, so this should keep the trend moving upward.

    I heard the U.S. version will be an upgraded model from the Chinese one, so I am excited.

    The Cruze is a great car.
