The final stage of tests in the real transit of the Chevrolet cruze rs, the sporty-trimmed version of the midsize car produced at General Alvear, Santa Fe. It will be distinguished by a distinctive aesthetic, although it will have no mechanical or suspension changes.
Chevrolet anticipated that “the Cruze RS will offer a visual that emphasizes the aerodynamic lines of its body and finishes that will give a more exclusive touch to the interior of the five-door version ”. The sedan (four doors, “with trunk”), at least for now, will not add a variant of this type to its range.
When does the Chevrolet Cruze RS arrive?
The Chevrolet Cruze RS launch It was initially scheduled for the end of 2021, although TN Autos learned that the automaker is considering postponing it to the beginning of 2022. The truth is that in a matter of a few months it will be in the dealerships.
The Cruze RS price will be reported at launch. Today, the five-door range is made up of three versions: manual LT, for 3.05 million pesos; Automatic LTZ, for 3.15 million pesos; and Automatic Premier, for 3.24 million pesos.
From the brand with the golden bow, they explained that the launch of this model is due to “the demand of many customers to have a C-segment car with these characteristics again.”
For the Argentine Cruze RS, Chevrolet promises exclusive details and finishes “That provide a more aggressive vehicle design.” While waiting for its presentation, it would not be strange to imagine that it will have exclusive design wheels, specific details on the grille, distinctive body color, emblems allusive to the version and details in the interior, such as special stitching or RS initials on the upholstery. .
The engine of this version will be the same as that already offered by the rest of the versions. We talk about 1.4-liter turbo gasoline with 153 horsepower. What is not confirmed is with which box it will be combined, if with a manual or an automatic one. In both cases, it would be six speeds.
The Cruze RS will be the second Chevrolet RS which is put up for sale in the local market. The first was the Onix RS, which was launched in April with elements that enhance its sporty image. Among others, it has details entirely painted in black, such as the grill, logo, spoiler, skirts, wheels and roof. Doors inside also replicates the same concept, both in seats and ceiling in combination with red wall lights.
