As expected, the CD JH model has its own unique set of chrome trim and inserts. There's also the added bonus of a sturdy, illuminated steering wheel for assisted driving, power steering and even ventilated rear disk brakes for longevity, as well as an integrated satellite navigation system. What might tip the scales is the fact that this particular feature has a whopping 7 inches worth of LCD magnificence.
You will also find Bluetooth integration, bottle/ cup holders and a couple of USB slots, although these could be considered fairly basic when compared to the other features offered by this model. If you were hoping for leather though, there isn't any - but that's not to say that the interior and seating aren't incredibly comfortable.
As far as the appearance goes, the Series II actually looks a lot like its predecessor in both style and trim. The trapezoid-inspired grill looks every inch the modern enigma and the front headlights take on a rather distinct appearance thanks in no small part to the sharp 140 degree angle. The wing mirrors leave a little to be desired, namely due to the fact that the lower portion contrasts sharply with the body.
It's mostly positive however, especially if you're a fan of the whole aerodynamic aesthetic - the likes of which can only be truly appreciated when discovering a smooth pebble on a beach. In many ways, the CD JH looks like a subtler take on the Honda Civic, albeit with far fewer edges and a smoother structure./
If you can overlook the 3.5 green star rating in favour of the full 5 star ANCAP score, this Cruze is nothing less than an ideal family car that can pack a punch on journeys of all sizes.
