Chevy showed off its new Cruze hatchback today, and it’s a pretty good-looking car, with styling that manages to strike a good balance between an aggressive front and a family-friendly shape, and has the potential to do pretty well for the brand. However, there is no denying that its overall stance and some of the detailing look a lot like one if its closest competitors in the marketplace…
… the Kia Forte5. Sure, the Chevy’s front is more aggressive and its bumper slightly more sculpted, but both have a similar, straight line between the hood and the windscreen, a similar grille arrangement, and almost identical profiles with the exception of differently-shaped C-pillars.
Things are no less similar at the rear, where the Cruze’s tail lamps are almost identical in shape (if not graphics) to the Forte5.
So, I’m curious – which one do you think, as they say in fashion, “wore it better”?
