A personal pre-launch party of the Cruze is being organised by Chevrolet in Chandigarh on October 5. So will get to see the car then.

We have all already seen the car on TBHP and various car shows, now all that remains in the final pricing.

Economic Times has this to say about the Pricing
GM's Cruze may be priced in Rs 12-14 lakh bracket- Consumer Life-The Sunday ET-Features-The Economic Times

Pricing is important but so is actually seeing and feeling the car. Photos and car shows are only a small part of the story.

I saw the teaser yesterday and it was like a SUV at first look, due to the sand dunes.Are they trying to show that this car is capable of offroading?

Me too saw the teaser on COlours yesterday and I thought they are launching perhaps new Captiva since the background was of a desert and the way the front grille showed a menacing stance.

Since it is going to be a powerful engine, I think it can pull off some stunts that the teaser attempted.
The punchline was - New Chevrolet this October.

whats the point of showing teasers now when already all of the major car shows on TV have revealed and tested the vehicle? Sounds FUnny to me.

Teh bonnet looks baby-camaroish.
Grille could be a little smaller, more aligned with the headlights. Like the Camaro.
Civic still is the benchmark in the looks department, IMO. Honda has got that low-slung, sporty look to almost perfection.

I hope Cruze is launched this month . Was anxiously waiting whole september for the release . All we have now is specs and test drive reports. Suppose now they could launch it to put all speculations to rest.
