All-new 2010 Chevrolet Cruze “world” car soon
General Motors has announced that they will soon unveil a new compact car called the 2010 Chevrolet Cruze, ready for release by mid-2009. The fact that it will be launched at the 2008 Paris Auto Show in October, and that it will also be available in the United States, hints at a new “world” car that will rival the Toyota Corolla and the Ford Focus in international reach. The car has already been spotted undergoing testing in USA.
Shown above is the prototype, shabbily photoshopped by me to give a better idea of how the car looks under the camouflage. Later, the photo of the actual car in red was leaked onto the net. Incidentally, a rebadged Suzuki Ignis is already sold as the Chevrolet Cruze in Japan, so it is odd that GM could not come up with a more original name. At least it should be better than the cheapish Korean-built Optra.
