Chevrolet Planning Competitor for Honda City?

As per the latest rumours and reports, GM is looking to build on the existing line up of cars in the Chevrolet portfolio and will release a minimum of five models by 2017. In addition to this, it is also being rumoured that Chevrolet would introduce a global C-segment sedan that would make its place below the Chevrolet Cruze.

It is also being rumoured that the Indian version of this model would have a turbo petrol unit or even may have a diesel option. GM India has already made it clear that all the future models of the manufacturer would be manufactured at the Talegaon, Maharashtra plant of the company.

As per reports, the model has already been undergoing testing and may be globally unveiled by the end of 2016.

Since India is one of the largest volume markets in this segment, GM is quite likely to launch it with much fanfare here and if launched it would be above the sub four-meter Chevrolet Beat sedan that is likely to go on sale in 2017.

GM has already had an unsuccessful attempt at the C-segment in India. They had released the Optra SRV premium hatchback as well as the Optra sedan in the past and both did miserably in the markets and were axed soon after the initial blitz. However, the brand is likely to learn from these mistakes and it will be interesting to see how this car shapes up for the global market.
