Hi friends here are the spyshots of new chevy cruze which going to launch here in 2009!!.................smiley1.gif

The next gen Optra is to make its International debut in October this year at the Paris motor show. It is expected to arrive in India in 2009.

 In the Indian market, the new car will be rebadged Cruze and will sell alongside the present Optra.

Looking at the spy shots, the Cruze is sharply styled and slots in a segment higher than the current Optra, bang into the Civic territory. It is significantly larger than both the Civic and the new Corolla. It bears strong family resemblance to its brother,the Epica.

The interiors are very good looking, and looking at the spy shots,it is quite a stunner ! It is expected to have higher levels of comfort and quality, being in the league of its European rivals. Considerable time has been spent on honing the ride and handling to bring it up to levels with its German rivals which is evident from its testing at the Nordschliefe Nurburgring.

It is expected with 2 engines. A 1.8 petrol with around 130bhp will be available. This is an all new motor and not the outdated Holden unit present in the previous car.

The big performer however is expected to be the 2.0 TDCi incorporating a Variable Geometry Turbo with 150bhp!!! Now that makes it a hot car and it could easily outrun the Jetta,Laura and even the base Auti A4 with 140bhp.The Cruze is the first car to roll out of GM

Good GM can now concentrate on Asian markets , as Western have started to slip out of its hands bigtime.

The diesel engine seems to be the same with increased power , like the one in Captiva.

@MNM= civic is a nice car but it doesnt  have the diesel advantage now so if cruze comes with diesel engine think it will be a hit...but hope before its launch civic gets a diesel so then it will be a nice to see the competition!!! smiley1.gifvibhor2008-08-06 13:21:34

If LCD screen makes to India, it will be a 1ST. for the segment.

Segment above Civic means Accord territory & unchartered for Chevy. in India. Extremely diff. to challenge the Accord.

To be launched new Lancer & Cruz would fall into somewhat categories. Lancer is an outrightly wonderful saloon, while Cruz will have to prove its mettle. I'll any day pick the new Lancer.

Let both come...Lancer though will be priced in same category its selected by different class of people...while Corolla, Civic and this Cruze will be for masses....And new lancer should remain with H City only...it should not enter D segment...

Sad to say this but all Chevrolet's that are sold in India are FAKE!!!! They are actually all rebadged Daewoo's. But the Tavera is a Isuzu Panther.
