Chevrolet has announced that the all-new Cruze, its new midsize vehicle is set to hit Middle East showrooms next year and will launch a website where visitors can register to receive regular updates on the car. The Cruze will be manufactured and sold in North America, Europe, Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia Pacific.
The Cruze’s arching roof-line gives the car a sleek look typical of new Chevrolets. Wider and longer than most of its competitors, the Cruze has a purposeful stance with its wheels located at the outer edges.
The Cruze has a dramatic profile, matched by bold front styling carrying Chevrolet’s new front grille, with large headlamp housings that wrap around the front corners and sweep up. Inside, the Cruze has a ‘twin cockpit’ design which was first introduced in the iconic Chevrolet Corvette.
Chevrolet’s design also extends to the interior of the Cruze. The interior has grained surfaces, soft-touch materials, low gloss trim panels and unique color-keyed fabrics.
The Cruze will be available with an Ecotech 16-valve, 1.6-liter (112 hp) and 1.8-liter (140 hp) gasoline engines featuring Variable Valve Timing (VVT).
