Article by Christian A., on October 23, 2014

Chevrolet Cruze is brand’s best-selling car around the world and since mid-2010 more than 3 million units left the showrooms. The 2015 Cruze in North America arrives with a new design, enhanced interior as well as better connectivity as the sedan offers new Text Message Alerts, Apple Siri integration and OnStar 4G LTE with available built-in Wi-Fi hotspot.

For those who want even more, the American manufacturer offers the RS Package that includes unique fascias, side sills, a rear spoiler and new fog lamps, as well as chrome accent rings that replaces the standard silver finish and opaque cluster bezels.

At the 2014 SEMA Show, Chevrolet will bring the Cruze RS Plus Concept, a vehicle that features the styling cues of the 2015 Cruze RS with a custom Wildfire Metallic exterior with the unique lower body moldings as well as a custom rear spoiler.

In addition, the concept gets a twin-stripe package in matte black from Chevrolet Accessories. The Jet Black interior gets a Chevrolet Accessories ambient lightning kit and illuminated door sills. A sport pedal kit accentuates the stylish design.

An amplifier kit and a Kicker subwoofer mean a high quality sound for your years. The 1.4-liter turbo engine was also improved thanks to the performance-enhancing stage kit from Chevrolet Performance as well as a concept fresh-air intake system.

Chevrolet will be unveiling the new 2015 Cruze at the 2014 New York International Auto Show. The latest iteration of the Cruze features heavily tweaked exterior, improved interior convenience and greater connectivity. In fact, the new Cruze offers Text Message Alerts, OnStar 4G LTE with available Wi-Fi hotspot, as well as Apple Siri integration.

Outside, the new Cruze dons styling cues that take inspiration from the all-new Impala and restyled 2014 Malibu, while inside, it features more intuitive controls. Thanks to new voice-controlled features, it has become safer to respond to text messages inside the new Cruze.

Steve Majoros, Chevrolet director of passenger car and crossover marketing, remarked that the 2015 iteration is better version of the already great and versatile Cruze. He noted that Chevrolet keeps on designing, producing and selling the most compelling small cars, and the 2015 Cruze is a testament to this, as laden with more features, connectivity and efficiency that modern customers demand.

For 2015, the LS, LT, RS and LTZ models of the Cruze are given a fresher look. To give its sedan range a more consistent appearance, the dual-port front fascia of the Cruze borrows a number of styling cues from Impala and Malibu. For instance, the LT and LTZ trims of the new Cruze make use of LED daytime running lamps that complement their swept-back headlights. The new Cruze will be available in a number of new exterior and interior colors.

In terms of connectivity and convenience, the new 2015 Chevrolet Cruze comes with a new Text Message Alerts feature for smartphone users. This feature boasts of a Bluetooth profile (M.A.P.) that could read incoming text messages via the on-board speakers.

Connectivity and convenience inside the new Cruze are also enhanced by the Siri Eyes Free for iPhone iOS 6 and iOS 7, allowing for voice-controlled connectivity, which means drivers could keep their hands on the steering wheel at all times.
