Chevrolet has quietly released the first interior pictures of the 2015 / 2016 Cruze which was recently unveiled at Auto China.

Looking significantly more upscale than its predecessor, the redesigned model boasts a familiar dual cockpit layout but comes nicely equipped with high quality materials and better attention to detail. The model pictured is obviously a high-end variant but we can see saddle brown leather upholstery, chrome accents and piano black trim. There's also a leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel, ice blue ambient lighting and a MyLink II infotainment system with an eight-inch display. Last but not least, there's a "butterfly-shaped center console" that promises to provide "intuitive, user-friendly operation with clear functions at a glance."

As we have previously reported, the Chinese-spec Cruze will be offered with a turbocharged 1.4-liter engine and a naturally-aspirated 1.5-liter unit. They can be connected to a six-speed manual, a six-speed automated manual and an all-new seven-speed DCG dual-clutch gearbox.
