In production globally since 2008, the Chevrolet Cruze has now been given a much-needed refresh by the American carmaker, making it even more attractive "with its latest aesthetic and performance updates, including its flex-fuel E85 capability." The revised version was presented at the 34th Bangkok International Motor Show.
The updated Cruze gets new front and rear bumpers, new-design fog lamps, new headlight design with chrome bezels, and a new grille that makes the brand's bow-tie logo stand out more prominently.
Inside, the car receives a new "brown stone" upholstery trim in addition to the new grain and texture for its center stack.
The most prominent update to the Cruze, of course, is the 1.8-liter, E85-capable engine. This makes the car a "Flex-Fuel Vehicle" capable of running on any form of gasoline--from regular petrol to those with 85% ethanol content, with its power output at 141hp and 177Nm of torque.
Do you think this flex-fuel engine can handle our infamously "dirty" fuels?
