In January 2015, Holden gave its Cruze small hatch, sedan and wagon range a new year cleanup with a restyled front-end and a dusting of new kit, but dumped its most efficient 1.4-litre turbo-petrol and 2.0-litre diesel engines from the line-up.
All Equipe, CD and CDX variants were be powered by the 104kW/175Nm 1.8-litre EcoTec engine, while more sporty SRi and SRi-V versions had the 132kW/230Nm 1.6-litre iTi turbo unit.
Entry level Equipe and sportier SRi variants got a new 17-inch wheel design and indicator repeaters in the door mirrors, as did the sporty flagship SRi-V with a revised 18-inch wheel style and the same integrated turn signals.
The range-topping SRi-V also got rain-sensing wipers and the remote start function previously seen in the Commodore large sedan, allowing owners to fire up the air-conditioning or heating prior to entry on hot or cold days.
Suede seat inserts completed the upgrades for the SRi-V.
