Global Chevrolet Cruze to go on sale in China this year

The Chevrolet Cruze that’s sold in the US and elsewhere around the world is due to enter Chinese showrooms from September this year.

To be made by SAIC-GM, the new Chevrolet Cruze will be available in seven trim levels, with prices ranging from RMB 109,900 (US$16,460) to RMB 169,900 (US$25,500).

The new Chinese Cruze will be available with a 1.5-liter direct injection I4 with 84kW and 146Nm, and a 1.4-liter turbo I4 with 110kW and 240Nm.

The 1.4-liter turbo is paired to the 7-speed DSG, while the 1.5-liter has a 6-speed manual or 6-speed auto.

We’re not sure what’s going to happen to the China-only Chevrolet Cruze (below) that was only revealed in late 2014 and went on sale in 2015. The two could be sold alongside each other, or the older car could be very short lived.
