Chevrolet Cruze Launch At Paris Motor Show

Posted on Jul 22, 2009 by

Chevrolet will unveil a small crossover – Cruze at the in
October 2008. Growing concerns on fuel economy and pollution legislation around the world has compelled most auto makers to re-align their vehicle lineup to reduce carbon footprints.

General Motors has not lifted the veil on what this small crossover will look like as yet.  All we know is that
the Cruze has been penned by Chevrolet’s global design and engineering
team and is to be built in multiple locations around the world. The
Cruze is designed to handle a parcel of five passengers.

Chevrolet used to sell a
badge-engineered version of the Suzuki Ignis with the same name
‘Cruze’ in Japan as well as some South Asian markets. The same was
rebadged as the Subaru Justy for Europe and Holden Cruze for
Australia. We are not sure if Chevy is intending to launch an all-new
Cruze altogether or scout around from its partner parts-bin and come
up with some sort of a compact SUV to keep up with the rest of the
players in the market!

One thing we are
definitely sure of is that the Cruze is gonna cruise to this side of
the world as their press release rightly puts it: The new Chevrolet
Cruze will be available in European markets in spring 2009, followed
by other “global regions”. Currently the smallest SUV offered by
Chevrolet here in the Middle East is the mid-sizer Captiva.
