With news of China receiving the North American specification Chevrolet Cruze, the brand will be shuffling its portfolio.
Car News China reports the Chevrolet Cavalier will be introduced as a previous-generation Chevrolet Cruze, while the new Cruze offers a more premium package. The Cavalier will wear updated styling, but receive the same engine as the current Cruze Classic sold in China, a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. A manual transmission is said to be the only option.
The report states a September 2 introduction date, and a very inexpensive price point. Chinese consumers will be able to purchase the Chevrolet Cavalier for just 80,000 Yuan, or nearly $12,000 USD.
