2018 Chevrolet Cruze is two car models from General Motors. The first Chevrolet Cruze was a compact SUV manufactured in Japan by Suzuki in 2001-2008. Second-generation Cruze was a brand new car developed by GM itself. The car has nothing in addition to its name in common with its predecessor. The car was first launched as a four-door sedan which, depending on the market, replaces Chevrolet Cobalt and Daewoo / Chevrolet Lacetti. The sedan model has been followed by semi-combi and combi models.
The first Chevrolet Cruze was originally presented as a concept car named Chevrolet YGM1 at the car show in Tokyo in 1999 and was based on Suzuki Ignis. The production-ready car had evolved from the Japanese car and was named, by GM’s Australian division Holden. The car was manufactured by Suzuki in Japan and was sold in Japan as Chevrolet Cruze, but in Australia, it was sold as Holden Cruze. From 2003, it also replaced the former Suzuki Ignis in Europe and sold under the same name as the predecessor.
The second-generation Chevrolet Cruze entered the market in China in mid-2015 and in the United States at the end of the same year. The models sold in different markets are slightly different in appearance. The five-door hatchback will be launched in 2017.
