Came in expecting b8 thread. Was going to say 'how else would I garner respect, admiration and prestige among my peers and associates alike'

Awaiting for news on the wagon, interior looks great. And yes, I agree with nasa. Surprised.

If they put this interior into their crossover lineup I might just buy one. Fantastic.

Funny, other than the obvous difference in the leather colour, the basic layout and the way the vertical air vents go around the infotainment/audio controls reminds me of the Ford Focus:

I'm seeing some Hyundai in there too(and this is a 2012 interior) - but that's how it works these days. Every manufacturer copies bits and pieces from each other.

Not really digging those blue rings around the tach and speedo on the new Chevy though, clashes with that tan leather dash(which I highly doubt makes it into a production model)

That is a production model. You can order that leather right now on their website.

Not sure what the point of this thread is, lot of "economy cars" can be ordered like this. But it does get expensive when its all topped out, well past $30,000. At that point, I rather buy a used Lexus or Audi. I own a luxury car and can never go back to anything non-luxury. At the end of the day a loaded Cruze is still a chevy, wont impress many

^whats the point in impressing people anyways. Not like anyone gives two sh*ts about what others drive.

Most of the interiors look very similar. Again it's the car brand that people are after.

Ah, not all buyers of luxury cars buy them for the name

How about:
More leg room
Comfy seats
Easier steering
Ac seats
Heated steering wheel
Quietness
Better sound system
Multi way adjustable seats
Auto window open/close
Home link / built in garage door openers
Power parking brake
Power glove box

Etc
Etc

Name and prestige trumps all of those options.

The dated and ugly Chevy badge needs a new design, just ruins the rest of the car.

Until I see it side by side with Corolla interior I can't properly dismiss it as inferior to Corolla. Which I will. Because Corolla.

Only high school kids and university kids and tweens in general care for these things.

Some people buy a Mercedes for the safest couldn't careless about the symbol. Or what's a difference between a Chevy and a Caddy?
