Gets a mildly revised front fascia.

The previous gen Chevrolet Cruze is gearing up for a minor refresh in the Brazilian market as evident from the recently spyshots clicked by Tatiana Kano, a reader of Autossegredos. The facelift exercise is aimed at squeezing more life out of the car which is being replaced by the new gen model in a phased manner.

The test mule features a disguised front fascia but the rest of the sedan remains unchanged. Going by the spyshots, one could expect a revised grille and bumper (similar to the US-spec facelift) with possible LED daytime running light strips within the foglight enclosures. While there is no information on the interior, a mild update can be expected.

The 2015 Cruze for the Brazilian market will continue with the existing 1.8-litre flex-fuel engine which produces 142 PS and 175 Nm of torque while running on ethanol. The motor is mated either to a 6-speed manual or an automatic transmission, sending power to the front wheels.
