These same cars seem to be all over the place. These were spotted by my friend yesterday outside his building in Bellandur. Seems the Chevy guys had taken a halt for dinner.
The only things he could get from those guys was that both these cars were diesel, one manual and other automatic, and will be priced around 15-17 lakhs to take on Honda Accord and Skoda Laura.

Why were they going around like that ? I managed to see them near BF,marathalli as well.[I was in a vehicle and it was running so just failed to manage a snap].

I mean they can only run a roadshow once the product is officially released.Also people are pretty smart these days-if they see a masked badge or a zebra clothed car the pics are immediately on the forums and experts take seconds to identify them. Also if this is something like a demo model for a yet to be released product , why were they being driven to their destination ?

Free publicity ? Letting people like us create the hype perhaps

Saw a white one 2 days ago. Side view looks a little Hyundai'ish.
The problem with modern Chevy and Ford is they look good in photos and when they are new and they sort of don't age well.

Saw the same car yesterday morning, one more white color was there. The car was on my route from Marthahalli to Domalur. I had some closer look, but couldn't take any snap as i was driving.
Interior, front dash and dials look good even outer appearance also. Had a quick chat with co-driver, the one which i had a closer look was a diesel variant, a very silent engine.

Yes, Even I saw the Car on 20th on MG Road and on 21st on the Ring Road, Bangalore. They've not camouflaged the Car with only tapes on the Badge and name. So it is due anytime.

Chevy have launched the Cruze Singapore website. Some great pics/specs and other cool info here
http://www.chevroletsingapore.com/allnewcruze/
Hopefully, they wont strip the car of most of the (important) functions that are available in SG when they launch it here.

[My first post here! Excited when i saw the website and thought it was a good share.]

I live in Vadodara which is around half an hour away from the GM plant (in Halol). The Cruze is a common sight in this city now. Have spotted at least 5 different ones in the last week (different colors including a wonderful shade of faded blue, can't put a name to it). The one I saw yesterday morning was being driven by a GM official in uniform (a sikh). They are only masking the logo and the name badges now.

Was at the local GM dealership last week and was informed that the Cruze would be in the showroom in the second week of Sept.

the GM's Automotive REsearch Center is near ITPL. Its on the junction of ITPL and on the way to Forum Value Mall.

All new ones will be brought there I guess. I have seen both Cruze and Beat there
