Chevrolet Sells 3 Millionth Cruze

Chevrolet Sells 3 Millionth Cruze

Global compact car is brand’s best-selling nameplate

Eleven plants. One-hundred and eighteen countries. Eighty-eight awards. And now, 3 million sales for the Chevrolet Cruze.

The best-selling Chevrolet model crossed the milestone recently, just 16 months after selling its 2 millionth model. From the U.S. and Canada, to Laos and the Philippines, to UAE and Jordan, the Cruze has proved itself a global player among small cars.

“The Cruze is an extremely adaptable car that can cater to the demands of nearly every market in the world,” said Alan Batey, GM executive vice president of Global Chevrolet. “It is a testimony to Chevrolet’s global focus and capabilities to offer a car that is so highly regarded in so many places.”

The Cruze has collected 39 product awards in China, 27 in the U.S. and 12 in Brazil. Chevrolet is committed to building product in the markets they are sold, so the Cruze is built in 11 different countries on five continents. GM design teams in South Korea and Germany had the global consumer in mind when developing the car in just 27 months in the late 2000s before debuting in South Korea in November of 2008.

 The Cruze endured intensive durability testing, including extreme weather tests and more than 210 crash tests tailored to the regulatory demands of the countries where it is sold.  

 For the Middle East market, the 2015 Cruze features enhanced connectivity with the easy-to-use Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system and upgraded safety features such as Side Blind Zone Alert. It also provides Chevrolet Care aftersales service, which ensures hassle-free service and the lowest maintenance cost in the compact car segment.

 According to recent research, Cruze’s cost of maintenance for up to 100,000 km is @ 3.98 baiza per km. Cruze also requires less upkeep than other models in its segment. The manufacturer’s scheduled maintenance interval for the Cruze is once every 10,000 km versus once every 5,000 km for most of its competitors. This means fewer visits for service, more time for driving pleasure and more money to spend on the pleasures of life. 

 The service price of the Cruze is not only competitive, it is also consistent and transparent. Pricing information is available at dealerships and online at, enabling owners to check the cost of service in advance.

 Chevrolet Cruze comes with a 1.8-litre engine and is coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission, delivering responsive performance with 140 hp at 6,300 rpm and peak torque of 175 Nm at 3,800 rpm,  In terms of power output-per-liter, this engine is among the most efficient in the market.  

 Cruze is not only loaded with a lengthy roster of features such as leather seats, rear view cameras & sensors, smart entry, push button start etc., but also features a host of standard active and passive safety features.
