If it is priced well below accord it could also see the sales cruising, however if it comes off in civic segment, am sure it will see tough competition.

Rear resembles the Civic, headlights look like those of the new Accord!!
With the mothership going down, will they be able to pull this one off??

Now is this a proper Chevrolet or another car from the DAEWOO stable?

Folks I spotted Chevy Cruz @ Rohtang Pass near Manali. Here are the pics. THe interiors are not as great as the pics posted on page 1 of this post. It seems like a car in Honda Civic segment.

Saw this car day before yesterday on ECR, Chennai. It was coming in the opposite direction, and didn't get enough time to pull my mobile to click some snaps.

Looks like GM is conducting a 'road show' of Cruze across the country. Why else would they test a car on this side of the country when the factories are there in the other corner!!

From the spy pics it looks like the interior will be similar to the Australian / Asian model and not the American version.

A tour of the interior's of the Australian version
The all-new Holden Cruze

The only thing I do not like about the car is the large front mesh grill. Prefer the Holden grill.

I spotted this car today in Bangalore, near Hope Farm. There is a small GM Workshop there and the car went into that workshop. Looks really big and sleek!

Oh that roof shape seems to point at low rear seats or insufficient headroom. On the other hand, its a great design.

The Cruze looks good. Is the waist line too high or is it just me.

Chevy Cruze spotted on Delhi roads (same car as the one in Manali). Is GM doing a road test or giving us a sneak preview.?
