New Car: 2009 Chevrolet Cruze

This is the Chevrolet Cruze, the firm's new small family saloon, which will make its first appearance at the Paris motorshow on the 2nd October.

The Cruze is the first in a long line of new Chevrolets that will include the Volt electric car, the new Camaro and a small city car based on the Beat concept. The Cruze will be built on Chevrolt's new Delta platform and will take the company in a new design direction with bolder styling cues.

The wrap-around headlights and new two-tier grille are key features of the car's design, and likely to continue across future models. Other important design cues include a crisp rising waistline, compact rear and sweeping front-wing lines that help to make this small saloon one of the best looking in its class.

The newcomer will rival the VW Jetta, Ford Focus and Honda Civic and at 4.6 metres, it's the longest sedan in its class.

The Cruze will go on sale worldwide in 2009. Three engines will be available at launch, producing between 110bhp and 148bhp.

The most popular engine choice is likely to be the 2.0 litre common rail turbo-diesel producing 148bhp, but there will also be 1.6 litre and 1.8 litre petrol engines, producing 110bhp and 138bhp.
