CarPix spy photographers have caught the 2015 Chevrolet Cruze under a little less camouflage than the last time we saw it. The shape of the two-part grille is no longer a mystery and we finally see the foglights that flank it - the details of the slimmer headlights are obscured by stickers, though. In back, some family familiar taillights bring the rear into production spec, and beneath them a clean rear diffuser goes uncovered.

We've seen the interior shots before, the cockpit featuring a larger touchscreen under a stitched dashboard and a new steering wheel. There are also fewer buttons, those who've seen them saying there's one for Eco, Park Assist sensors and voice recognition, and the extra cruise control buttons on the left side of the steering wheel could be for a lane departure warning system.

After having been delayed until the end of 2015 here, it's still so far out that we haven't got an info on what other changes might lurk under the hood and skin. Still, have a look at the spy shots above.

      I hope Chevy doesn't screw up the exterior design of this car up, i really do-

      It appears to have a bit of Malibu design cues with a hint of impala. The interior looks top notch for its class. Nice work Chevy. Would have been nice to see a led driving lights. Maybe on the top end models in the bumper insert like the impala LT2 or LTZ. Hopefully they go back to coupe, sedan, hatchback/wagon, and convertible models with this series. It is much needed in the Chevy lineup.

        I saw plenty of 2014 Malibu in that front end too, especially in the grill area. I'm really excited to see what the final product will end up like.

      Hope they chopped off a few pounds of the weight.

      I hope we get a global launch date that doesn't make us wait 2-3 years after the rest of the world like the current gen car did. And I hope they keep the 6 speed manual available on 90% of the lineup, like the current car.

        It's coming in 2015, same time as everyone else.

      Looks like a mini-Ford Fusion. Cruze has done pretty well overall, compared to what it replaced, so another generation of improvements never hurts.

      Why does every new car and small sport ute front end look like a fish with it's mouth wide open? I don't get it. It's not a look that I think is so great. Besides, everything looks the same.

        The big mouth design is really popular right now. It's tuner trend from guys making fiberglass bumpers with huge openings to show off intercoolers. This car isn't nearly as big of a follower to this as the Ford Focus. Unfortunately, the size of the opening needed to deliver the right amount of air to the radiator is much, much smaller than what is wanted by the current style trend. a big opening has the aerodynamics of a parachute. What they do, then, is blank off about 3/4 of the opening with black matte plastic. From about 50 yards it looks like an aggressive tuner car. Up close, though all I see is the black plastic faux opening. It's horrible.

      I hope a 2 door is somewhere in its future as well. (Tru 140)

      It looks pretty promising but guess we will have to wait and see. I have to say though, I feel like every new compact car design has that swooping roof toward the rear. I understand aerodynamics and all that but all of them are starting to look visually similar.

        Well, lady, you certainly doth protest too much... The problem with so much unsolicited hate such as yours is that it betrays just how insecure and threatened you feel. Yes, the Americans are kicking ass with their vehicles now. Deal with it like an adult, if you can. Your potshots are nothing more than (lame) desperate pleas for attention. I suppose it's working, but, then, what do you feel you've accomplished by becoming the unofficial Euro-trash douchebag troll of AB? Maybe I'm wrong, and you suffer from an illness, like some kind of keyboard-induced Tourettes or something?

          LOL. if there's anything worse than poor design, it's the little angry man who tries to defend poor design by means of his undying 'patriotism' towards this country. If you really loved your country, you'd be disappointed by how terrible products are being developed here. Shallow and empty like yourself, most likely.

          You're pathetic. Accusing me of defending poor design, when your total argument for calling it poor design is, and I quote: "looks terrible already.....as expected." Aaannnddd, that's it... When I defend an American car, it's "undying patriotism." When a Brit car mag does the same, as with the Corvette, pray tell me, what is THEIR dysfunction? The amount of cognitive dissonance you have to endure must give you a migraine. I'm a car guy. I appreciate quality vehicle engineering, no matter from where it comes. I appreciate innovation, no matter what the company, what the market, or what the price range. You are not a car guy, you are a CAR SNOB. You are the worst type of insufferable, arrogant, and WILLFULLY uninformed know-it-all, who opens his mouth without opening his mind. How else do you explain the loads of drivel you spew onto your keyboard? And you call ME shallow and empty? You are the archetype. Fool.

      Interior looks all right, but exterior is a bit...dated.

      I might be one of the few people who think the current cruze (in high end trim) is an attractive car. It reminds me of my old A4 in a way - with its simple, geometric profile and nicely balanced proportions. I hope the new one doesn't get too busy with complicated lines running every which way.

        I agree. The LTZ with the big wheels is one of the nicest looking small cars on the road. Once you drop down to the LT, not so much.
