    I think this is a handsome looking car in and out, but I'm almost tired of seeing it. Having it launch in other markets and at US auto shows SOOOOO far ahead of its US launch (a GM practice that HAS to go), makes it seem like old news over and over. And the day of the Cobalt's demise and the Cruze actually showing up at dealerships is still many months away.

    I don't like how it looks on the outside, and it doesn't look like it will age too well. The interior though is fantastic for this kind of car.

    Re: New Cruze pics

    We have a cruze in our shop right now that we will be lowering for SEMA. It has the cloth seats, steel wheels, base model car I guess. took it for a short drive, handles fairly well, seats are comfortable. Definitely needs more power. One thing I noticed is that in the engine compartment there are some decals for emissions and such and they all seem to be in some sort of "arabic" print. Will post some pictures after I'm done lowering it.

    Interesting license plate.

    Are such plates available in India or were these added specifically for the shots?

    I agree that it would have been nice to have the car here now, but it is a really nice car .. worth waiting.

    Great pics of the car. I wish projectors were at least available, not to gun ho about the plastic triangle instead of a window (what other "me too" criticisms can I come up with?) But the car is really nice and I am excited about it.

    Looks great!

    How does the Cruze compare to your previous Honda City, and C220? I am just wondering if it has a premium feeling, or is that only skin deep.

    A Mercedes is a Mercedes, so no point comparing a chevy with it. It, of course gave me a better interior quality and a "premium feeling" as compared to cruze.

    The Honda, falls a segment below and simply lacks the "feel" after I have driven this for about a week. Moreover, the Honda only had a 1.5 petrol while this has a 2.0 CRDi turbo diesel with that tidal wave of torque while driving on highway.

    The car feels rock solid and sturdy at speeds as high as 170-180 kmph and there is no reasn why this car will not succeed. It has already netted 1,100+ pre orders before launch and the car has a month long wait.

    My car is equipped with aux-in, USB port inside the front armrest, sun roof, keyless-go, push button engine start and stop, 6-CD in-dash audio (mp3) with bluetooth connectivity as an option (which I went for). Due to harsh roads, 17" wheels are not offered and the car comes with 205/60 R 16 tyres (I changed to michelin primacy for better grip and stability).

    0-100 takes about 8.5 seconds.

    Current diesel economy:
    Urban:13.5 kmpl
    extra-urban (highway): 17-18 kmpl, expected to improve after the car has run-in and first service done.

    The rear seat is a bit short on legroom and not that comfortable.
    Front seats are amazing and lower thigh support superb.
    Ride with the new michelins has improved a lot and GM India has calibrated the suspension for optimal balance of ride and handling.
