Upcoming Chevrolet Cars in India

0

It is not secret that General Motors has been struggling with Chevrolet in India. An old model lineup and a lack of new car launches have scuppered their growth. They outlined a new plan of action in 2015 promising to invest heavily in India. However, a few months back, GM India decided to rethink those plans and will now proceed with a different strategy for India. Over the next couple of years, Chevrolet will launch five new models in India. Read our Upcoming Chevrolet Cars in India post here to find out more about these cars.

Essentia

The third car on our list of upcoming Chevrolet cars in India is the Essentia compact sedan. It is yet another derivate of the 2017 Chevrolet Beat. Judging by its dimensions, the Essentia is likely to slot in below the current crop of compact sedans. This sub-compact sedan will rival the upcoming Tata Kite 5. We’re expecting the launch to take place in the second quarter of 2017. Engine and transmission options will be shared with the new Beat and Beat Activ.

Price (estimated) Rs. 4.2-7 lakh

Trailblazer Facelift

Out of all the upcoming Chevrolet cars in India, the Trailblazer facelift could be the first one to arrive in showrooms. Launched in late 2015, the Trailblazer rivals the likes of the Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour. A lack of a 4×4 variant and the fact that its rivals enjoy a better brand image meant it has not been able to find too many takers. The facelift should help things.

Expected Launch Date Early 2017
Price (estimated) Rs 27-30 lakh
Engine Options 2.8 L Diesel

Cruze

What was once the best-selling car in its segment has lost out to newer competitors over the years. Earlier this year, Chevrolet did roll out an update, but a mere facelift was not enough to revive the car’s fortunes in what is already a flagging segment. By the end of 2017 or early 2018, GM will bring the latest generation Cruze to India. The sedan gets a comprehensive makeover and should help GM make up some lost ground in the D-Segment.
