The form of the hood Chevrolet Cruz with his side and central edges is no longer something new (such a decision can be seen in the latest Renault Megane), but in the face of these items are entered Cruze harmoniously. Profile and the rear of the vehicle is much quieter. From different angles they can somehow remind competitors: curved, large bi-colored tail lamps, curved roof line, parallel faces on the sides of the body - all these elements are widely used in the classroom.

In the design of interior Chevrolet Cruz used the original decision. The form of the steering wheel, instrument panel and control keys are not standard for today's C-class cars. Shop set up a claim to it to look "not in the class of expensive."
Torpedo shape and glove box lid to the Chevy Cruze emphasize the separation of the front of the passenger compartment into two zones: the driver and passenger. Scale of the speedometer, tachometer and other indicators placed in the wells. Keys a lot, but the console does not look overloaded.
