Sweet! Will be very tempting if the price is OTR and as suggested!!

Sid, one very very minor suggestion: Can you try picturing the brochures without flash next time onwards. I think your pictures will be bolder

If the pricing is right, it will definitely succeed with some aggressive marketing.

Now waiting for the detailed drive report from GTO.
Looks like you have missed the brilliant review of Cruze by Tsk. Check out http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...ve-review.html

Thanks for the brochure! They are really going to redefine the segment!

I have test driven this car, and absolutely fell in love with it. Booked it right then and there. Am expecting it to be delivered by 22nd of this month. But, if it is more than 14.5L OTR, I am going to cancel the booking.
The official launch of this car is tomorrow- 12th december.

I am still wondering if even a single bit looks similar to something in the Corvette!

I'm having totally similar thoughts as does rajivn that how GM positions it against the Jetta. 13 to 15 lakhs should be justified according to the normal pricing scene. Anything lower or higher would be a surprise of either kind.

Now we have 4 Cruze thread - 2 closed, 1 test drive and now this.
Isn't it possible to just keep it to one - so many of the points are re-re-re-repeated.

People from some Advertisement agency were shooting an Ad for Cruze in DLF phase 5, In the sequence a blue Cruze was chasing a black Endeavour. A lot of detergent was put on road to increase the wheelspin at startup to make it more dramatic.

Here is the link to a Video i shot-

Seems a promising launch for GM India.

However, I only saw ABS in the brochures, no EBD, BA etc.
If EBD is missing, its a glaring omission against the Honda, Toyota, Skoda brigade ?

So there is a good change that Chevrolet will go for a price reduction in the future, as it did for Spark.
Its much bigger than the Verna.

hope the auto is coming soon. A 5 speed auto will do wonders for this frugal diesel.

I was referring to interior space. The rear legroom, as well as the front room is comparable to cars like Verna.
When compared to cars like Corolla, she falls short of expectations.
If you talk about 14L price tag, then the Embera whips her good in space and comfort.
