India-bound 2017 Chevrolet Cruze launched in China
New model available in seven trim levels, starting at RMB 109,900 (INR 11,02,784.71). Chevrolet launched the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze in China earlier this week. The Cruze in China is now identical to the North American-spec model. The 2017 Chevrolet Cruze is available in seven trim levels, with prices starting at RMB 1,09,900 (INR 11,02,784.71) and going up to RMB 1,69,900 INR (17,04,850.98). The 1.4-litre turbocharged engine now produces 240 Nm of torque, up from 235 Nm previously. The older Chevrolet Cruze measured 4,567 mm in length, 1,786 mm in width and 1,454 mm in height, and had a wheelbase of 2,662 mm. The 2017 Chevrolet Cruze measures 4,666 mm (+99 mm) in length, 1,807 mm (+21 mm) in width and 1,460 mm (+6 mm) in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,700 mm (+38 mm). The new Cruze is bigger in every major aspect, but Chevrolet isn’t adding the ‘XL’ suffix to the name, as reported earlier. The 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine now produces 110 kW (147 hp) and 240 Nm (+5 Nm) of torque, and is paired to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The 1.5-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine, like before, develops 84 kW (112 hp) and 146 Nm of torque. However, instead of a 5-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic transmission, this unit can now be linked to a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic transmission. The 1.5-litre naturally aspirated engine can now be had with a new 6-speed manual transmission which replaces the 5-speed manual transmission.

Next-gen Suzuki Jimny to be made-in-India – Report
Reported to be based on the Baleno’s lightweight platform. Car and Bike reports that Suzuki will make India the production hub for the next generation Suzuki Jimny. It could be launched in markets like Brazil, Indonesia and Europe before the end of the decade. The Jimny could be launched in markets like Brazil, Indonesia and Europe before the end of the decade. Suzuki’s tough-as-teeth SUV will be based on the Maruti Baleno‘s lightweight platform, offering significant weight savings that could be beneficial when traversing mucky terrain. It will continue to offer the characteristic 4×4 drivetrain, but could be powered by the 112 PS 1.0L Boosterjet engine from the export-spec Maruti Baleno. Given that a 3-door mini SUV is a niche in the Indian market, Maruti is likely to introduce the Jimny as an extended, 4-door version in India, should the manufacturer consider a launch. As the Jimny name would be new to regular car buyers, Maruti could consider launching it as a long-time successor to the iconic Gypsy to garner attention. Like the Maruti Vitara Brezza, it can be sold as a sub-4m SUV, competing against the likes of the Mahindra TUV300. Given that a 3-door mini SUV is a niche in the Indian market, Maruti is likely to introduce the Jimny as an extended, 4-door version in India.

Kia to finalize Indian plant next month, Andhra likely option – Report
Likely to be located closer to Hyundai India’s plant. According to Reuters, Kia Motors will finalize a location for their first production plant in India next month. Reports suggest that it will be located in Andhra Pradesh, so as to have a close proximity with sister brand Hyundai’s plant located in the outskirts of Chennai. One likely product Kia could consider for India is the Picanto, which is based on the Hyundai i10. Operations are expected to commence in 2019, and the plant will be capable of producing 300,000 vehicles a year. Kia’s products for India would share platforms with Hyundai’s established models, which are almost fully localized in the market. Other than working on local production, Kia will also develop independent retail network and strategies, rather than leveraging on sister brand Hyundai’s wide dealership network. This will help Kia establish a distinct brand identity, similar to the likes of Nissan and Renault’s relationship. Kia will also develop an independent retail network and strategies.
