The face lift version of the Chevrolet Cruze was launched in India in 2016. The car was a big success on Indian roads. The Cruze’s beefy profile immediately distinguished the car from its peers in the midsized sedan segment. The muscular characteristics were evident in its split grille, broad doors and the sculpted rear. The car earned praise for it driving pleasure.

The Cruze was a comfortably long car and was one of the first recent vehicles in India to sport a sunroof. The all-diesel Cruzewas a well thought out package and was probably the only truly American car on Indian roads. Sales of the Cruze were discontinued when General Motors (GM) exited the Indian market in 2017.

The Chevrolet Cruzewas a powerful car and its diesel motor was one of the best in class. The 165mm ground clearance offered a comfortable ride even on potholed roads. The entry-level trim was later upgraded to feature adjustable driver’s seat, keyless entry, and fog lamps. The vehicle had ample legroom and headroom to accommodate taller passengers.
