Chevrolet has introduced a familiar nameplate to Americans in the China. The brand took the wraps off the new-for-China Chevrolet Cavalier, and it has an official price tag.
The Cavalier will start at RMB 79,900, or $11,961 USD, and will climb up the trim hierarchy to top out at RMB 109,900, or $16,453 USD. Chevrolet states the Cavalier will be offered in five different variants falling between the two price points.
“The Cavalier is an exciting new nameplate for China,” said SAIC-GM President Wang Yongqing. “It features advances in design, quality, technology and fuel efficiency to meet the demands of mainstream Chinese families.”
The Chevrolet Cavalier is really the previous-generation Cruze Classic with a new face and name, but the move to this strategy will allow the all-new 2017 Chevrolet Cruze to move more upmarket.
The Cavalier will arrive with a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine with standard stop-start. The engine may be paired to a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic.
Inside, the Cavalier won’t skimp on content. A seven-inch touchscreen is present along with Bluetooth connectivity. It’s also the only vehicle in its class to feature Baidu CarLife support.
The Cavalier will arrive at dealers across China in the coming months.
