Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.

Sources have told IndianAutosBlog.com that the Chevrolet Cruze facelift that is undergoing trials before it is launched in India later this year could be more than just a cosmetic operation.

A few weeks ago, GM India had confirmed to Indian Autos Blog that they are indeed working on a facelift but were not forthcoming on the specifications.

But here's what our sources tell us. We advice readers to consider this information as speculation.

  • A better finished interior
  • Cosmetic changes to the car's front and rear
  • Further adjustments to the car's rear seat leading to better comfort
  • Contrary to earlier reports, a 2.2-liter diesel engine, borrowed from the Captiva, producing 165-170bhp, is in the Cruze's engine bay
  • Launch to be conducted in the second half of 2012

We're awaiting more details on this matter, so stay tuned to IndianAutosBlog.com.
