The next generation of the Chevrolet Cruze has been spied once again, this time around testing on the Nürburgring.

The 2016 Cruze will allegedly ride on an all-new platform developed by General Motors which will be known as D2XX. GM already said the new Cruze will come with "new exterior and interior styling, improved fuel economy and an improved interior compartment and more storage space."

Initially scheduled for a fall 2014 release, Cruze production was pushed back until December 2015 which means it will go on sale as a 2016MY. As a consequence, the current-gen will live on through the 2014 and 2015 model years.

General Motors plans on investing 220M USD in their Lordstown and Parma plants to get them ready for the next-gen Cruze production. The car will allegedly be offered as a sedan, hatchback and coupe and should feature an Impala-inspired front fascia. Its D2XX platform will also underpin other models in the GM empire such as the next-gen Volt, Astra and Equinox.
