Review of Chevrolet Adra
Initially a part of the American Automobile Company General Motors (GM), Chevrolet earned its identity when Swiss race car driver and automotive engineer Louis Chevrolet was ousted from the company and co-founded Chevrolet with three others in Detroit on November 3, 1911. The progressive thought of the masterminds of the company, "a car for every purse and purpose," took the automobile market by storm and established a strong footing for Chevrolet, making it spread its presence throughout the globe.
Since then, Chevrolet has been designing both high-end and budget cars, efficiently pushing barriers in the automobile industry, the latest ace being the Chevrolet Adra.
The Chevrolet Adra is the newest SUV from General Motors designed specifically to suit the Indian Market. The new SUV comes packed with 1.3L Multijet diesel engine, 77BHP maximum power and a revamped look as it sports a blacked out A- and B- pillars and a blacked out roof. Chevrolet has also kept the customers spoilt for choice with the option of more than one contrast roof color.
The Adra is built on quintessential General Motors Gamma 2 platform, making it primarily a front-wheel drive platform for sturdy, compact cars. With the maximum seating capacity being five and the price range being close to 5.5 lakhs, the Chevrolet Adra aims to be the new crossover SUV for the Indian families.
Review of Chevrolet Cruze
Chevrolet India has decided to give a refreshed feel to its already popular sedan the Chevrolet Cruze by installing in it an upgraded engine having an engine displacement of 1998 cc, a torque of 360Nm @ 2000RPM and an engine power of 164 bhp @ 3800 RPM. It has also made some minor changes in its design quotient and has made marked improvements in its noise, vibration and harshness levels.
On the look factor, the Cruze gets a more aggressive look than its former as the front fog lamps have given way to triangular nacelles, giving it a clear-cut sharp chin. Besides, it also has been redesigned to give a new look to its front bumper and the front two-part grille, which has a sharper lower section, with horizontal slash replacing the previous honeycomb mesh. The rear portion of the car too has a fresh feel as the round elements within the lenses gets replaced by greater angular designs. The new alloy wheels give the car the final touches with much élan.
With the company working hard to up the drivability of the car, the GM looks to consolidate its position in the Executive Sedan segment with the launch and revamp of the Chevrolet Cruze.
