GM has found the Cruse as their one of the best-selling vehicle, not just in North America, but worldwide.

Longer wheelbase will increase space between seats in cabin. Aerodynamic will be slightly improved with few new shapes on the exterior of the 2016 Chevy Cruze. Inside, more legroom on the back seats and increased cargo area will be highlights. Also, latest technology features will be installed in the car, which could appear in hatchback and coupe versions for US market.

It will be 1.5-liter four-cylinder with output somewhere around 150 hp. Also, 1.4-l turbo four-cylinder is a candidate to replace current 1.8-l engine for base models. One option introduced in 2014 could be carried over. It will be diesel engine, turbocharged 2.0-liter.
