We catalogued as gibberish Chevrolet's attempt to use emojis in an official press release about their upcoming 2016 Chevy Cruze. It took us some time to decipher the smiley faces-filled text, but in the end we came up with a more or less accurate translation.
However, Chevrolet came out today offering a solution for the unusual riddle. All in all, the overall message is "you are going to love the new Cruze".

So, allow us to test how fluent we are in emoji language. For that, we'll make a quick comparison of what we managed to understand and what Chevrolet actually meant with the written emoji soup. Here's our 'translated' version of the press release and what we thought the next-gen Cruze will be like:

- more athletic, lighter, and attractive;
- equipped with OnStar 4G LTE with Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 7 devices;
- compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto;
- sufficiently spacious for five people;
- the segment leader in terms of cargo space;
- sold all over the world.

And now, here's what Chevrolet wanted to transmit with the wacky press release:

Design: Athletic build, stylish and good looking
Technology: 7 connected devices with available 4G LTE Wi-Fi. Cool! First in its class to offer compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Bluetooth compatible. Touch screen. Speakers/music.
Seating: Seats 5
Fuel efficiency: The 2015 Cruze offers an EPA-estimated 35 mpg hwy. The 2016 Cruze is expected to offer better fuel economy, which is awesome. Look at how much time will pass before you need to fill up your tank again!
Safety: 10 airbags. Comes with OnStar standard for six months.
Available: Soon! Coming in Spring 2016.
Available: Globally
