WoodwardDream Cruise is a tradition here in MI and is always a pleasure to spend a fewhours around all kind of cars that you won’t see all together at any otherevent.
Cruze2016 was also there and I took a few pictures. Well, my first impression is…negative!. I really don’t like how it changed. It looks too… “not American”, noteven European, what’s left?
Frontgrille “RS” looks cheap plastic, see the details. The back side of the car is toocurved, a tall person won’t be comfortable on the back seats. Rear lightscoming outside from the car shape are not my style. The new Malibu and the newImpala are way sharper and attractive in my opinion.
Iplanned next year to change my 2011 with a new 2016 Cruze but I think I’llreconsider it. You may like it but wait first to get closer and touch it when youhave a chance….

Love the front - still not sold on the back yet. Too bad I didn't make it walking up that far (3 miles was enough, that'd of been a good extra 4 miles in total), I'd of loved to have seen it in person.

It's strange, when you touch it and look closer it feels... cheap... Maybe is just me...:icon_scratch:
I think it's the "mono color" of the gray as well as the gloss of the covered grill. You realize that everything is just molded plastic that should have fooled the eye into something else - except they cut too many corners and the eye isn't fooled.

I think a lot of masking and some flat black paint would change the look.
