Using some of the basic design details of the current Cruze, this next generation model arrives in a much sleeker and stylish body. Lower proportions add to the high speed look of this turbocharged sedan. Please let me know what you think :)

That looks pretty cool. Maybe alittle racy for a high volume Cruze though.

I see some Aston Martin in there and I like the beltline, but I'm not sure about horizontal and vertical aspects in the grille. Overall it's got great proportions, well done!

Thanks for joining in on the comp', and what an entrance. This looks the bees knees, and you've used simple lines so effectively. Very impressive :). Sure I see some Aston, but I can't see that as a bad thing.

It's becoming a bit flooded with Euros, but I'm really liking this segment at the moment, there's a few C63s around here and they are just amazing, GM has the powerplants... 'bout time they got to it.

Thanks bejeweled & Z284ever, about the design- i wanted it to stand out among all the competition and really push the envelope. Knowing that designs usually get watered down before production, better to start a little crazy if you ask me.
Thanks Slideways, I will experiment with a few different grille styles and see what I come up with.
Joe88, thanks for the compliments and thanks for starting up a design comp! It is always interesting to see what the GMIers come up with.

it's amazing-spooky (with the Aston & Ford comment(s)) how,
to me anyway, you came so close to the front of the Focus-BEV the day before anyone knew about it

Haha 2b2, I did not notice that similarity until you pointed it out. Kind of creepy!
Thanks for all the compliments!

looks very good. But the front is too long. It makes the car look very long--not a compact.
