Talking about the Cruze, I absolutely loved the 3 features mentioned in the end of the post. Dual air bags, ABS and an emergency exit system (including boot exit) is a nice package ! Match that with the aggressive looks !

Another car coming up very soon with a good over all package is the Manza. I am sure it wont be in the same bracket as the Cruze, cost wise. But the list of its features also includes some attractive ones at a very competitive price. Ive booked a TD already at http://www.indulgeinmanza.com

Hi!

I am a lover of Chevrolet products. And the recent release…Cruze driven me literally crazy! (Except the hefty price tag for a person like me though it is justifiable).

I can’t wait to own it! Will you please let me have the details of cashless ownership option?
So that prospective buyers like me might be benefited!

Thanking you so much !

Soma
