Chevrolet Cruze is now cheaper still. General Motors had launched the revised Cruze at the Auto Expo 2016 early this month and has now further reduced the car’s prices. The revised pricing seems to be a result of slow sales of the D-segment sedan that have failed to pick up in spite of the facelift.
The Chevrolet Cruze facelift gets LED daytime running lamps, a revised front grille with added chrome and a chrome finish fog lamp housing. The entry level Cruze trim, the LT now costs Rs 13.95 lakh as against the launch price of Rs 14.68 lakh – lower by Rs 73,000. The LTZ and LTZ automatic prices are Rs 15.95 lakh and Rs 16.95 lakh with a price cut of Rs 80,000 and Rs 86,000 respectively.
Powered by the 2.0-litre 164bhp engine, the Cruze still remains one of the most powerful cars in its segment. It comes with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, rear-view camera for parking, climate control and also an electrically operated sunroof.
The Cruze competes with the Hyundai Elantra, the Skoda Octavia, the Volkswagen Jetta and the Toyota Corolla Altis in its segment with the Elantra and the Corolla Altis ruling the roost.
