The second-generation Chevrolet Cruze has been spotted undergoing testing on the road, following a series of spy shots revealing the car during winter testing.
Predicted to go on sale in the US in late 2014, this fully disguised Cruze prototype is believed to be the first car to use GM’s new global D2XX platform.
It is thought to underpin a variety of future Chevrolet and Opel/Vauxhall vehicles, including the next-generation Vauxhall Astra and Ampera, as well as a wide range of other models from GM's other brands, that is Buick, Cadillac, Holden and GMC.
Externally the prototype looks longer and sleeker than the current generation. Estate, hatchback and saloon versions are likely to be available, along with a range of updated petrol and diesel engines.
