2013 Chevrolet Cruze WTCC China Edition


If you needed any more proof of the burgeoning auto gold mine that China is fast becoming, don’t look any further than Chevrolet releasing a special edition Cruze in that market.

We get limited run exotics and the supercar variety, but a Cruze? It’s not exactly the first model you’ll think of when releasing a special edition model in China. But that’s the kind of growth the Chinese market has had in recent years, enough for automakers like Chevy to green light a unique variant for a mid-size car like Cruze.

In any case, the Cruze WTCC Edition was designed to celebrate Chevrolet’s success in the WTCC racing series. The car itself carries race-inspired graphics and a slew of new body kit components that include a new rear bumper, modified side skirts, and a truck-mounted spoiler. Looking at the overall product,

As far as the engine goes, the Cruze WTCC Edition comes with a choice of powertrains, including a 1.6-liter gas engine that produces 115 horsepower and 111 pounds-per-feet of torque and a more powerful 1.8-liter gas engine that delivers 145 horsepower and 130 pounds-per-feet of torque.

For a chance to own one, you’ll have to be in China with 123,900 yuan, or about $20,000, to spend.

hmm, if so, well... that is not ok for Chevys business in China.

i heard that a famous HongKong racing driver was killed in a Cruze WTCC in Macau Grand Prix...

4 karla: you’re right, those two brands and many others should offer credible alternatives.

if I were to spend such money, I would go for something else, for a better value for money.

this engines are pretty decent but so are the latest Civic and Mazda 3

They are using again a prefacelift model to clear stock...

in my opinion, this car is nothing to be excited about

This car is better looking than civic, isn’t it?
