The diesel indeed has 150 ps ? Read in the other thread that it was only 125.

Great stuff as usual sidindica. Maybe you should change your id to Scooperman

Awesome scoop. The Optra replacement is finally here!
Good to see ABS as standard!
No airbags even as an option?

IMO this is overpriced! That too from a brand which is not doing too well in India.
The same specification Cruze is available here in Australia through Holden and is priced below $24k.

Awesome scoop as usual Sid. The price bracket is also quite tempting. But replacement for the optra ? I doubt.

Pearl white? Is it first in this segment?

dual airbags are standard. Request to mods to kindly add "dual airbags" in safety section.

The leather upholstery is supposed to be in some white color in addition to grey interior plastics.

Awesome. I think this will go up against Laura and Sonata CRDI. Even if the fully loaded model comes at around 15L, it's still value for money. Finally, GM India is bringing some heat prior to the launch of BEAT.

This is exactly what the interior color combination will look like- 2 tone grey it seems.Of course, navigation will not be standard.
