An all-new Holden Cruze is on the way, but with reports last year pointing to development delays, it could be another year before we see a showroom debut.

Spied in cold-weather testing this week, the new Cruze is set to take a more sporting look.

Camouflage obscures most details here, but it is clear that the next Cruze will combine a higher belt line with the appearance a low-slung roof, creating a more coupe-like style.

Greater detail in the tail-lights can now also be seen, revealing a design that could bring the new Cruze closer to the larger Malibu's Camaro-inspired rear design.

It is likely that the new Cruze will draw its styling inspiration from the Tru 140S concept, which appeared alongside the squarer 130R showcar at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show.

The 140S features Chevrolet's familiar dual-port grille design, and its coupe styling suggests a two-door model could debut to take on the likes of Kia's Cerato Koup.

The current Cruze line-up includes the original sedan, along with a five-door hatch and the recently added Sportwagon.

The new Cruze is also expected to be longer than the current model, creating more interior space for rear passengers and boosting storage capacity.

The current model's Delta II platform is expected to continue with the next Cruze, although extensive upgrades will help the car remain competitive in the small-car segment.

The platform is also likely to underpin a number of other GM models which, according to business paper Reuters, will result in around 2.5 million small cars and crossovers.

Manufacturing

Production of the new Cruze will continue to be a global project, but with Holden exiting Australia's manufacturing industry by the end of 2017, it is unlikely any all-new Cruze models will be built here.
