This new Cruze will official be launched at the 2014 New York motor show.
The original Holden Cruze was innocent. It was never going to be the pinnacle of automotive craftsmanship, but it was innocent. It didn't look angry and as though there were too many hood ornaments littering its bonnet. GM seem to like large grills, and have used that as an excuse to add more air intakes to the front of this little car. They've over sold a little car.
Here is the current Holden Cruze, it is innocent, not head turning, rather basic, not over sold, but appropriate; ballanced:
The spacing on this car is perfect, they're not over selling power of this car by having so many in-crested hood lines. This is a good, 2 litre run around car, it is not an angry 'don't know if we will get you there', crap American car. It's appropriate.
I've enjoyed driving the Holden Cruze, it is fun, but it is not a long cruising car with those hard and unforgiving seats. But that doesn't mean they've needed to ruin its face too.
Maybe, just maybe it is the horrific Chevy logo, that brown cross doesn't do any justice to the front of any car. So maybe once they replace that cross with a proper Holden lion it may bring back some dignity to the appearance of this little puppy.
