It would be nice if this was made available to US buyers. Its not a bad looking car. Americans pay a lot more for a butt-ugly Prius. I have to admit that even I would consider purchasing one.

It will be in a couple of months. The Cruze is the replacement to the Cobalt.

Do you really need to be so obnoxious with the font size? Do a little research before starting a thread like this. Where exactly do you see 50 US mpg? The car will be available in the US and actually get better mileage than the european version.

tjts1,

did they say what the sticker price would be?

I actually wouldn't mind having one. it looks like a good deal if they can keep the cost down.

I don't think they have announced yet but it should have a similar price to the Cobalt which the it replaces.

They're replacing the Cobalt? It's a relatively new model and I thought they were doing well with it...

$12-15k? The article was showing prices at 11-15k POUNDS! IIRC, a pound is about $2.

Also...were they using American or Imperial gallons? If imperial gallons, the mileage might not be quite as fantastic as it sounds...One imperial gallon is approximately equal to 1.201 US gallons.

Still, if I were in the market for a new car...

You can't use a conversion of the price in another market to get a US price. Canadians pay more for a new car than can be accounted for in the currency difference, even on cars made in country.

If it comes, the Volt will be on the Cruze platform.

We have seen the European version of Chevrolet Cruze and its Korean version Daewoo Lacetti. This time is the US version Cruze. Outside or inside, we cannot spot a difference from the European version, but under the bonnet, here sits a 1.4-liter Ecotec turbo engine putting out 138 SAE horsepower and 148 pound-foot of torque. Yes, this is the same engine you can find in the latest Opel Astra. The downsized turbocharged engine is capable to return 40 mpg on highway, matching the most frugal US Ford Fiesta mentioned above, which is a great achievement considering it is a class larger than the Fiesta.

Another engine choice is Lacetti's 1.8-liter DVVT normally aspirated unit, with similar horsepower (136) but significantly less torque (123 lb-ft) and undoubtedly higher fuel consumption. Its availability is rather unnecessary.

Another difference from the Korean and European version is the manual transmission which has 6 forward gears instead of 5. Another transmission, 6-speed automatic, is unchanged.
