2015 Chevrolet Cruze Reviews, Prices and Pictures – Welcome to Neocarsuv.com, we will provide the latest information about the Chevrolet Cruze Concept. 2015 Chevrolet Cruze changes is one brand new car from Chevrolet that was released in 2015. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2015 Chevrolet Cruze Release Date.
The 2015 Chevrolet Cruze is an affordable small car that receives styling and feature updates this year.
The 2015 Chevrolet Cruze might be a lame duck, with an all-new replacement due next year; but it’s hardly that in the market. Among compact sedans, the Cruze remains an exceptionally strong entry in nearly every respect, offering up a roomy interior, remarkably quiet highway ride, good safety ratings, an available diesel model, and even a top trim level that brings mid-size luxury to a compact four-door. And for 2015, the Cruze gets some meaningful updates to its infotainment and connectivity.
Chevrolet has changed just enough on the 2015 Cruze to be able to stand up to its claim of “smarter looking” although the changes for 2015 are by no means any thing radical. There are a few new colors and there’s yet a little more brightwork in front; and the headlights are new, but it’s merely the units themselves (they’re more nicely detailed). Otherwise from the profile to the sheetmetal and trim, the Cruze carries over on the outside. Inside, there’s nothing seriously different either, although there are new cupholders, and trunk-release and door-lock releases have been moved to more convenient places (the center console and door panel, respectively).
The 2015 Chevrolet Cruze is powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with 138 horsepower. A turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine with the same horsepower and 23 pound-feet more torque is available. A diesel version of the 2015 Cruze offers 151 horsepower from a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and earns an EPA-estimated 46 mpg city/highway combined. Meanwhile, the Cruze Eco gets up to 42 mpg on the highway. Exterior highlights include a redesigned grille and front fascia.

2015 Chevrolet Cruze Interior
The 2015 Chevrolet Cruze is handsome, but it’s not by means particularly bold. It hardly deviates from the compact-sedan norm; and unlike most other cars in this class, it saves its best, design-wise, for the interior.
That’s not to say that Chevy hasn’t tried to give the Cruze a little more curb appeal. They’ve changed just enough on the 2015 Cruze to be able to stand up to its claim of “smarter looking” although the changes for 2015, again, are by no means any thing radical. There are a few new colors and there’s yet a little more brightwork in front; and the headlights are new, but it’s merely the units themselves (they’re more nicely detailed).
Other available features include a 7-inch touch-screen display, additional USB ports and OnStar 4G LTE with a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, which allows up to seven devices to connect to the Internet. The center console now contains the trunk release controls, and the door lock switches have been transferred from the center console to the doors. Ten air bags come standard, while a rearview camera, rear park assist, rear cross traffic alert and side blind zone alert are some of the available driver assistance features.
The Cruze’s interior comfort and excellent ride quality will of course carry over to the 2015 model. The Cruze has the sophisticated, well-damped ride of a larger sedan; the cabin is quiet, too, with road and wind noise well damped out. There’s good front-seat space (it’s one of the best picks its size for taller drivers) and rear-seat comfort, and while this isn’t one of the sportier entries in this class (look to the Ford Focus or Mazda 3 for that), it’s definitely one of the most livable for daily driving and for regular back-seat use.
Otherwise, it’s the look and feel of the interior that really set the Cruze apart from other compacts; even up next to some of the newest entries in this class, it’s the one that will impress passengers. The Cruze’s cockpit uses rich materials and available two-tone color treatments to give a look that’s equal in design and material quality to that of a much pricier mid-size sedan.
2015 Chevrolet Cruze Exterior
The Cruze remains offered in an entire range of trim levels, including LS, LT, RS, and LTZ models all of which provide an impressive set of features for the money. As well, interior technology has received a significant upgrade throughout the 2015 Cruze range.
Cruze LT models are the most popular, and that’s understandable as they add items like a USB port, Bluetooth, remote start, chrome wheels and power rearview mirrors. The LT trim level can be upgraded to the 2LT to add 16-inch alloy wheels, leather seats, a power driver’s seat, heated front seats, cruise control, a USB port, Bluetooth, remote start, and steering-wheel audio controls.
And for 2015, the Cruze now can be equipped with an upgraded version of the MyLink infotainment system Siri Eyes Free connectivity for iPhones. It will offer a new Text Message Alerts feature that can read incoming texts. The new OnStar 4G LTE high-speed embedded data connection will also be available, including Wi-Fi hotspot capability; and the system now has a seven-inch touch screen, additional USB ports, available navigation, and an (upcoming) AppShop.
Chevrolet has imbued the four-door with a new upper and lower grille evocative of the solidly good-looking Impala’s maw. We’re not sure the swept-back grille works as well here, given how seemingly high it has been placed on the Cruze’s front end, but it certainly pulls the Cruze into line with Chevrolet’s other sedans. We dig the new lower fascia treatment, which comes with LED running lights on LT and LTZ trim levels, though. Chevy didn’t change anything, it seems, about the Cruze’s butt.
2015 Chevrolet Cruze Engine
As before, you’ll have a choice of three different powertrains for the Cruze: a base 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, a 1.4-liter turbocharged four, or a 2.0-liter turbo-diesel four. The 1.4-liter is the ‘premium’ of the two gasoline engines; while it makes the same 138 horsepower as the 1.8-liter, the 1.4T’s accessible low- and mid-rev torque makes it a better match for the automatic transmission as well as a smoother, more agreeable choice in terms of day-to-day livability.
General Motors rolled out the Eco for the 2011 model year, building on the fuel-sipper program it pioneered with the 37-mpg Chevrolet Cobalt SFE. But with the Cruze, GM engineers went to greater lengths to improve fuel economy, and they’ve made some further changes for 2012.
We’ll get into an analysis of the tricks that makes the Cruze Eco special, but first let’s emphasize what GM didn’t do to punch up the Eco’s mileage. This is a car without any hybrid technology, not even a mild hybrid system like the eAssist system GM deployed on the Buick LaCrosse and has planned for the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco. There’s no start-stop system to aid Cruze Eco’s 28 miles per gallon city fuel economy rating. In fact, the Cruze Eco’s turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder doesn’t even use direct injection to make its 138 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque.
The Chevrolet Cruze Diesel is well worth considering, even though it’s only offered in a single model and trim. For this, you need to ditch your diesel preconceptions. The four-cylinder 2.0-liter diesel puts out 151 hp but a strong 264 lb-ft of torque, and it’s mated to a different and beefier six-speed automatic transmission (there’s no manual here) than the gasoline car. Thanks to no fewer than three different types of exhaust after-treatment, you won’t smell a thing out the exhaust, nor see any smoke or soot. It will also return fuel economy that’s significantly better than its 33-mpg EPA—especially if you tend to drive more on the highway, or drive longer distances (with its 15.6-gallon fuel tank could give you as much as 700 miles of range).
You’ll find the 1.4-liter in most LT and all LTZ models is by far the better choice for gasoline models. It’s smoother, more refined, more fun to drive, and more fuel efficient too. It can be paired with a six-speed manual gearbox, but most buyers will opt for the six-speed automatic. The 1.8-liter four is the cheaper base engine, but it’s definitely not our preference as it’s noisy and coarse when pressed.
