Chevrolet Cruze to Launch in India on the January 27
General Motors CEO Mary Barra unveiled the 2nd generation Cruze in Detroit last year. The 2016 Cruze is one of Chevrolet’s best selling cars around the world, and is all-set to launch in India on the 27th of January.
John Cafaro, executive director, Chevrolet Design, says that the new design has been influenced by the 2014 Impala and the new Malibu, keeping the common style design. The new Cruze sports a dual port grille surrounded by LED headlamps. The new sedan is 68 mm longer and an inch shorter than the previous model. The change in height and length leads to a more spacious cabin. A 7-inch touch screen displays MyLink and Android Auto with an optional 8-inch screen for CarPlay.
In terms of safety, Chevrolet has deployed 10 air bags, a side blind zone alert, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure alert and forward collision alert in the new Cruze.
The car is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine, which generates 165bhp of power and 380Nm of torque. Pricing of the sedan will be revealed at the time of the launch.
