Chevrolet Cruze Launched in Malaysia

Paul Tan has popped up a brief post stating some details about the launch of the Chevrolet Cruze in Malaysia. Thailand is still waiting for this car!

Malaysia is not getting much choice in engines, and the car is imported from Korea. Clearly this strategy wouldn't be a success in Thailand, since it would be impossible to compete with locally built alternatives.

I just got back from the Chevrolet Cruze launch at the KL Convention Centre, where GM’s global C-segment sedan was unveiled by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak. The PM also read out the much anticipated price of the Cruze – RM97,888 for the sole 1.8-litre variant imported CBU from Korea. The on the road price excluding insurance is RM98,767.60.

The Cruze is powered by a 1.8-litre Ecotec engine with 140 bhp and 176 Nm of torque. The twin-cam 16-valve unit with DCVCP (Double Continuous Variable Cam Phasing) and VIS (Variable Intake System) is paired to a six-speed auto gearbox with Shiftronic. Major equipment include dual airbags, traction control, ABS, EBD, in-dash six-CD changer and climate control.
