Dont know if the specs are out as yet, but its meant to have a 2.0 litre diesel engine; about 140bhp if I remember correctly. Someone I know drove it and said that the acceleration and engine smoothness was much better than that of the Swift Diesel. Again, dont know if this has been put up here; so please pardon if this is a repeat.

Wow, the car looks good inside out. I just hope they price it well and GM's bankruptcy does not affect it too much. GM India has already started feeling the heat with reduced footfalls at dealerships and lowering resale values.

You are right about the launch period. But I think the ranges are way ahead. Not sure of price though. Was thinking around 15L.

I think cruze petrol topend should come at around 11 L OTR and Diesel 12.5L OTR then only it will make some sense.

the current optra diesel top end sells around 12.8 on road in bangalore .Why would they price it similarly.
add another 2-3 lacs to the optra's price for the cruze.
18 lacs is not acceptable for this vehicle with its limited space.
while you get an accord for 20sh.I dont think Chevy is that Dumb to price it so high(maybe)

and at that price, Optra is already dead. If they try to price is close to Corolla or Civic, they will have one more dud on their hands.

If I remember correctly, I think ET had an article stating that the price would be between Rs 12 to 15 lakhs.

It seems that GM is openly running test mules all around to simply show that they are still very much committed to India and will be launching new cars. Who knows what the truth is, but the way Daewoo India went down is still very much in the minds of many of the Matiz owners
