A car will also hit the Indian market, with the automotive press making a deal out of the news. The car will be offered in 7 different colours, giving everyone a choice.

The Cruze will come with a choice of a diesel engine which is extremely important in India. Motorists are looking to purchase cars that give back better economy amid a fuel price crisis.

The car is a saloon and one of the most respected cars of it’s kind in India. This time round the car has almost a coupe shape to it, making it more attractive.

Lowell Paddock, Head of General Motors’ Indian operations said “The Cruze has received an overwhelming response from consumers across India, since its launch in 2009. We expect the newest member of the Cruze family to continue to exceed the expectations of car buyers and stand out against the competition in its segment.”

We believe that the Cruze have to come a long way here in the UK if they are to compete with the top guns.
