Chevrolet Cruze By September 2009

GM is set to launch its Cruze by the September of this Year. The Cruze is the first GM car to be based on the company’s all-new, global, Delta platform. It’s interior and exterior design was carried out under a multinational team at GM DAT in Korea.

The car exhibits extremely delightful qualities.  It has unusual double-decker front grille, headlamps, rubber seals around the windows. The chassis of the Cruze is primarily engineered to provide high levels of comfort. The dual cockpit treatment is original and stylish. The quality of materials and finishes is also impressive. The switchgear, steering wheel, stalks and headlamps switch resemble those present in the more expensive Opel Insignia -with a unique impressive audio and climate control layout.

A huge glovebox, big door bins and excellent centre console storage sit alongside Audi-like air vents, a nicely shaped steering wheel rim and impressive audio system.

When it is launched in India, the Cruze will come with a choice of a 138bhp 1.8-litre petrol and a 147bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine, with an option of an automatic transmission as well. The 1.8 petrol version is the least desirable of the two -it occasionally stutters and has to be wrung out above 3000rpm before it really begins to move along. It didn’t quite live up to the performance suggested by the figures. (ACI)
