LED headlamps with a thinner appearance and a grille that now features chrome inserts are also included, and the new RS trim level dips the chain link grille in gloss black and adds black side rails and 19-inch wheels with the “Dark Android” version of styling. Inside the RS features red stitching on black leather upholstery, and there have also been upgrades to the suite of standard safety features that Chevy added last year with the inclusion of automatic emergency braking, forward-collision alert, lane-departure warning, and lane-keeping assist.

When navigating your way through your to-do list on the wheel, you’ll be deriving power from the 1.5-liter inline 4 turbo, paired with the choice of a 6 or 9-speed automatic. There are also the selection options of front-wheel or all-wheel drive, and this year sees the addition of Wireless Apple CarPlay/Wireless Android Auto.
