Sagar Parikh, I'm the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!
Update - GM India has just launched the new Cruze and the prices are attached after the jump.
These are pictures sent in by our Delhi man Shakti from the launch of the new Chevrolet Cruze. We expect the prices and changes to be revealed in the next 15 minutes. Remember there's no facelift, so GM India better have a good reason for calling it an "all new" Cruze.
