General Motors Vietnam (GM Vietnam) recently introduced the new Chevrolet Cruze. It has begun accepting pre-contracts, with deliveries starting on November 30.
The new Cruze is priced at VND 589 million for LT trim and VND 699 million for LTZ trim (including VAT).
It maintains its predecessor’s Chevrolet-signature dual-port chrome grille, sculptured lines and balanced taillight design with a wide chrome bar on the upper rear bumper that creates a sophisticated look.
The stylish exterior is complemented by a luxurious interior. With premium black leather in both the LT and LTZ trims, the new Cruze creates an impression of elegance and refinement. The Cruze LTZ also comes with a power sunroof and redesigned dashboard.
The new Cruze offers a rearview camera, which helps the driver to see stationary objects behind the vehicle when parking on the street. Four air bags, including two front and two new side air bags, in the Cruze LTZ enhance safety in case of a high-impact collision.
Speed-sensitive auto door locks activate when the car starts moving and a high-strength steel cage provides strong protection for all occupants. The Cruze is also equipped with the anti-lock braking system (ABS), rear-park assist, an LED high-mounted stop lamp and an anti-theft alarm..
Like its predecessor, the new Cruze comes with a choice of economical engines. The Cruze LT is equipped with a five-speed manual transmission and a 1.6L four-cylinder DOHC engine. Meanwhile the Cruze LTZ comes with a six-speed automatic transmission and a 1.8L DOHC ECOTEC engine with Variable Valve Timing (VVT).
