A causal browsing of the Chevrolet India website might give a surprise to you as Chevrolet has launched the facelifted Cruze in India. While thanks to the recent happenings with the Tavera, the company as been silent on the launches front though it has been updating its current range.
The headline news regarding the new Cruze is the Dual Port Front Grille, new alloys, new front bumper which certainly adds even more muscle to the design. We like the new front looks and the alloys. Inside it continues with the black leather interiors which look good and also come loaded with features like 6-Way Power Adjustable Driving Seat, cruise control, Bluetooth etc.
Engine wise you get the 164 bhp engine with 6-speed auto/ manual transmission. Prices for the new Chevrolet Cruze sedan start at Rs 13.75 lakh. These changes have been applied to the Cruze within some days of the launch of the new Skoda Octavia- the biggest rival of the Cruze along with the Hyundai Elantra. The question is will these changes be enough though overall the Cruze does come across as a desirable package.
