The Chevrolet Cruze has been officially launched in Thailand, one of the fast growing markets in South East Asia. The Thai Cruze will feature several enhancements that will appeal to the local customers.
It is powered by a series of engines, starting with the 2.0l turbocharged diesel which produces 150 hp and 320 Nm of torque.
The Thai Cruze is also offered with a 1.8l gasoline engine that delivers 141 hp and 177 Nm of torque and a 1.6l unit that develops 109 hp and 150 Nm of torque. Both come with a five-speed manual transmission.
Martin Apfel, GM Thailand/South East Asia president, said that the introduction of the Cruze is “a step forward for Chevrolet in Thailand.” He described the Thai Cruze as an “all-new world-class sedan that offers superior design, technology, performance and safety.”
He adds that the Cruze has a great look, is fun to drive, and is responsive. The Cruze features a quick start button, remote keyless entry system, steering wheel-mounted cruise control and audio controls, USB and Bluetooth connectivity, windshield wipers with automatic control, auto headlamps and a navigating light system.
