At the time of launch, GM India only provided the 2.0 common- rail direct injection diesel derived from the Captiva. This diesel engine produced 148 horsepower and 327 Nm of torque at 2600 rpms. The Cruze was better suited to highway driving than congested city traffic. Its urban drivability was hampered by the turbo-lag.
On the open road, the car went from 0 to 100 km/h in 9.8 seconds, and that was with the air conditioning on full blast. The Cruze refuses to let go even after hitting the tonne. In this beast, hitting 180 kph was a breeze. There are many reasons to miss this Chevrolet masterpiece, which makes it a car we'd like to see back on Indian roads with an update. However, given GM's exit from India, the chances of that happening are slim to none.
 Concept of the month - 1961 Ford Gyron
In 1961, Ford Motor Company unveiled the Gyron concept
automobile. The two-wheeled car was supposed to be kept upright by a gyroscope, but the technology was too pricey for a display car.


 Instead, the fiberglass Gyron employed outrigger wheels to maintain balance while being propelled at 5 mph by an electric motor. In the 1962 Ford Rotunda fire, the Gyron was completely destroyed.
