Chevrolet in Cruze control

Chevrolet will call its all-new family saloon Cruze, and we'll get to see it for the first time at the Paris motor show in October.

A Ford Focus and Honda Civic rival, the Cruze will showcase the design for future Chevrolet models.

Offered initially as a five-seat saloon, the Cruze will be powered by parent company GM's new 1.4-litre engine with an output of 120-140bhp.

The Cruze will be sold alongside the Lacetti, Chevrolet's other family car, when it arrives here next year.
