2019 Chevy Cruze refresh aims for more 'upscale' look

by Justin King

The Cruze has been one of Chevrolet\'s worst-performing nameplates this year, with US sales down by nearly 33 percent.

General Motors has introduced the restyled 2019 Chevrolet Cruze, one of three Chevy facelifts unveiled today.

The mid-cycle update features a revised front fascia and a new grille, aiming to achieve a more premium appearance. In the Premier trim, the brand's signature dual-element taillamps now feature LED accent lighting.

"Cruze's refreshed styling gives Cruze a more upscale look while maintaining its Chevrolet design DNA," says Chevy design director John Cafaro.

Other enhancements include a standard seven-inch infotainment system, new wheel designs and revised trim elements for the sportier RS package.

The company has not yet announced pricing or a specific launch date for the 2019 Cruze lineup.
