Launched in 2009 the Chevrolet Cruze has been a huge hit with outselling its rivals every month. Actually its not hard to see why as the Cruze has great looks and fantastic performance. One of the major selling points of the Cruze has been its dynamic styling with sharp muscular lines all over giving the car a sporty yet an elegant look.

The interior similarly has more styling flair than its rivals with a futuristic looking dashboard. It has got many gizmos like a start/stop buton and cruise control. Available with an automatic transmission also, the Cruze has covered all the areas and certainly has everything a luxury car buyer wants. But it seems GM wants to improve it even further. They are going to do some major updates notably addressing the shortcomings of the car.

Chevrolet Cruze is a stylish new sedan and brings very modern and contemporary looks to the segment. The Cruze has been a hit product for GM in India and it has done very well for itself in the segment with only one engine option available. In June 2012 Chevrolet Cruze was updated with a new engine and minor tweaks and that has certainly helped matters and make it remain fresh. Looks wise things remain the same. It still has the sleek and sharp lines which makes it look fast when it’s standing still. Chevrolet Cruze brings top notch paint quality while the fit and finish is excellent.

Inside, it has very comfortable seats which give excellent lumbar and thigh support to the driver and all of its other 4 passengers. It has ample storage area for your items and includes center armrest with storage and illuminated glove box and a boot space of 280 liters for all your luggage carrying needs. The new Cruze now gets a dead pedal as standard feature, 6-way power adjusted driver’s seat and the electric windows now come with anti-pinch technology. The in-car entertainment also received an update with surround sound feature. 

With improved torque and 163 BHP of power, the updated sedan can now break into triple digit in just 9.5 seconds and can reach a top speed of 220 km/h.It is a high performing engine and offers excellent amount of torque for in-city drives and plenty of punch for highway runs. The new Cruze has a 163 bhp diesel engine and it gives about 13 kmpl in a combined cycle which is decent considering the performance in offer and the increased power.  Cruze sedan loves to cruise on the highways at great speeds thanks to good combination of engine performance excellent high speed stability offered by its excellent chassis and suspension combination.

Chevrolet Cruze has a slightly firm suspension setup but the ride quality isn’t compromised and it’s a pleasure to drive in city and absolutely blast on the highways during weekend getaways. It comes with ABS + EBD to aid the driver in stopping the car which is highly capable of reaching speeds of over 200 KPH. Prices start at Rs 13.85 lakhs to Rs 15.67 lakhs ex-showroom Delhi. Chevrolet Cruze has been an extremely good performer for Chevrolet and GM in India and it has seen excellent response from its owners. Chevy has good dealer and service network and have been ramping up and improving their after sales network and service. For a detailed analysis read below.

By Lovish Jain Posted on 14 Oct 09, 01:51 PM

Pros great looks,amazing price tag,comfort.all new style

Cons none!

hey guyz! i just got my hands on new chevy cruze and i was amazed after the ride! the cars heart is flawless and it wont bother to throw itself on ur demand. Powered by 2.0 ltrs diesel engine that produces 150 bhp is great. with all new masculine it demands second look from everyone on the road (thou it looks like civic from back but its front is just amazing and the shoulder line is mind blowing) The car feels great in interiors and is full of luxury. and to talk abt features u can just go on and go on. but few features that makes it different from other cars in this category is PUSH BUTTON START AUTO MATIC RAIN SENSORS ELECTRONIC GATE LOCKS ONE TOUCH ENGINE STOP HUGE DISPLAY SCREEN GREAT WHHEL BASE and all this come for a price tag of Rs 13.45 lacs on-road new delhi. it is the chevy diwali gift for all the people who are looking to buy a car in this range and also it has gifted sleepless nights to toyota and honda! sanchit!

Cheaters

By PRABODH MEHTA Posted on 21 Aug 10, 03:54 PM

Pros looks good

Cons service is pathetic

I purchased a Chevrolet Cruze on 22 feb 2010 from DPM sales Deharadun, day I bought it I wanted LTZ model but dealer was very perticular in giving LT model as according to him LTZ was not available but 4 LTZ was standing in front of us. Reason we didn't want to puchase LT was, there was a bump(manufacturing defect) at the back of the car, but finally we bought that only because we didn't want to go empty handed. Well after all these things we were happy that we bought a nice car as so much of trust is there towards GM, that you seems to be one of the best manufacturers in the world. But within few days that car started showing its true colors, some noise started coming from it, It started fusing smoke from the back., etc... on 18/08/2010 first servicing of that car was done at (Virdajoyti, Meerut), after that I thought now it will run good, but within 2 days car stopped on the road and was not starting up,I was going for a very important meeting that I couldn't attend then immediately I called to Deharadun office they took my car to the service center and on 21/08/2010 they replied back saying servicing was not done properly and some sensor was not working. I told them how it can be possible one day back it is coming from service they replied we dont know. Then I called to your Delhi Customer care department, there I got a very fantastic answer saying that - "we dont know what happend and we can not do anything regarding that, it is a mechanical ploblem it can happen to any car it doesn't matter if it is coming from servicing, you do what ever you want I can not help it" I am in a shock after listening to all this and in back of my mind I am planning to gift this car to Chevrolet team for making me fool.... You all know from what you are going through and after all this If you behave like this I don't think so you people will exist in indian market for a long period. I hope you have some brains regarding customer relationship and if not then pack your bags and make fool of some other country citizens.

Cruze - The Muscle Car Cometh!

By Unnikrishnan Posted on 31 Jan 10, 10:53 PM

Pros Great Looks, Strongest in (and above) class

Cons Pricing Conflict

The Cruze qualifies as an elite among beasts. Its got everything from good curves and bulked presence to roomy front interiors. Classical Chevy representation makes the car your sanctum sanctorum - you step in, power up the windows and you throw away the world. Floor the gas pedal and your scenery changes faster than your dreams could do it. The engine rarely utters beyond a purr when you hear it from within (behind rolled up windows).....lower a window and the 'bad boy' roar is all too apparent. Cruising a bend, it makes no lurch or squeals-adjusting to demands almost seamlessly. The mileage is a non-issue, clocking in at 11.5 kmpl making it a delight for the pocket. The power output is distinctly zippy, pouring power faster than most cars in its class. Could give ALL bigger boys a run for their money.....its not exactly the Laura (Skoda) but you'd hardly notice coz its the newest dream machine and has that "Broad shouldered" look that'd outshoulder ANYTHING that passes for a car on the roads as yet. BTW, some of the so-called UV wannabes (SUV and MUV) are pathetic underperformers too! Go buy it! Behave yourself when driving....being powerful doesn't mean being misbehaved! Honestly! ;-)

Chooze to Cruze

By Dakshina Murthy Posted on 14 Nov 10, 02:50 PM

Pros Agressive looks, powerful.

Cons No!

What they say is right, it is really a Diesel rocket!! But sometimes it makes very high pitched sound and sometimes a very little sound. Fuel economy is great.
