New Chevrolet Cruze price reduced in 1 month of launch

Launched in India in the last week of January, new Chevrolet Cruze price has been slashed by a whopping INR 86,000 already. The car which was priced from INR 14.81 lakh last month, is now on sale at a price of INR 13.95 lakh (all prices ex-showroom, New Delhi).

The reason prices have been declined is that Chevrolet India wants to make their new luxury sedan a more value for money propostion for their buyers, reveals PTI. But it still comes across as a surprise as the car was launched less than a month ago. Why the company did not launch new Cruze with the slashed prices is still a mystery.
