General Motors previously committed to introducing 20 new or refreshed products by the year 2020 in China. Today, another vehicle can be checked off the list.
Chevrolet announced the next-generation Cruze hatchback would launch in China next month, sharing the same platform as its North American cousin. Chinese consumers should be delighted to know the Cruze hatchback reveals nearly 26 cubic feet of cargo space upon lifting the rear hatch. With the seats folded flat, that figure jumps to 47 cubic feet.
As for power, Chevrolet will offer a familiar 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a naturally aspirated 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine. However, three transmission options will be available including a seven-speed dual clutch, a six-speed automatic with start-stop system and a traditional six-speed manual transmission.
The Chevrolet Cruze has been a monumental success since its inception. Last year alone, 208,718 Cruzes were delivered worldwide.
