: To increase its market share in the four wheeler segment, General Motors India has now launched a Chevrolet Cruze’s auto version. The manual version of Chevrolet Cruze, which was launched in October 2009, has already redefined the Dsegment with its coupe-like design proportions, comfortable interiors, class leading features and other exclusive product attributes. The six speed automatic transmission will be offered on the LTZ variant, which also comes with a host of features like PEPS, push button start, cruise control, smart screen and electric sunroof to name a few. The automatic variant will also be available in a special three coat paint called white diamond in addition to the six colors already on offer. The Chevrolet Cruze AT also has a triptronic mode, which boasts to enable a sportier drive for the customer. Other highlights of this six-speed automatic transmission include clutch-to-clutch shift operation for added precision and smoother shifts between gears. Also, it has a wide spread ratio with the first gear designed for a very high ratio to provide brisk acceleration from the top while the sixth gear has an overdrive ratio to keep the engine revolutions as low as possible for highway cruising and improved fuel economy. One of the key benefits of this model is that it uses premium fluids in the transmission that does not need replacement during normal use. “Chevrolet has already become a driving force in India’s vehicle market,” said Karl Slym, president and managing director of GM India. The Cruze has already won awards including, NDTV Car and Bike Viewers Choice Car of the Year; Autocar Bloomberg UTV Best Saloon Car of the Year; ET Zigwheels Midsize Sedan of the year; Car and Bike NDTV Executive Car of the Year; and BS Motoring Best Value for Money Car of the Year. The Chevrolet Cruze is also claims to be one of the key drivers of the global expansion of Chevrolet. It said to be is backed by the highest scores in major crash safety ratings. The Chevrolet Cruze has also recently received the maximum fivestar rating in European New Car Assessment Programme (ENCAP) rating, after winning five star ratings in Australian and China NCAP. The latest feather in Chevrolet Cruze’s cap is its selection as a finalist in the reputed ‘World Car of the Year’ Award. And with the Automatic transmission option the Cruze offers everything any discerning Indian car buyer could want in a Sedan at a price point that represents uncontestable value for money.”
