Good news for Pinoy car enthusiasts! According to Chevrolet’s official distributor in the Philippines, Covenant Car Company Inc (TCCCI), the Chevrolet Cruze 2018 will hit our shores soon, maybe sometime this year.
The new Cruze was first launched in Detroit more than 2 years ago with a sleeker appearance and said to be lighter compared with its predecessor. Looking at the front, it is easy to notice its new front fascia with a nice sweeping design, sleek LED headlights along with a restyled dual-port front grille. Moving to the rear, it is equipped with a new set of taillights, a more sculptured trunk lid, and a more aggressive rear bumper.
