|At last weekend’s Naza Auto Mania, Naza Quest (Chevrolet Malaysia) introduced the Chevrolet Cruzw 1.8l and Colorado Sport 2.8l, for the first time.|
Both the Cruze and Colorado Sport are essentially the latest renditions of Naza Quest’s best selling variants. The Cruze Sport now comes with several outstanding exterior features: a redesigned front fascia, an aerodynamic body kit, new door visors and five-spoke lightweight wheels.
Step inside, the Cruze Sport continues with the dark-hued cabin, along with a few additions like the premium leather seats, LED door sill plates and improved foot rests. Additionally, the Chevrolet Cruze Sport 1.8l includes up-to-date features such as LED front and rearlights, PEPS (Passive Entry Push Start) Button, Cruise Control, Steering Audio Remote Control, Electronic Climate Control, Info Display, Euro-ride Tuned Suspension and Dual Cockpit.
To boost performance, the Chevrolet Cruze Sport has been gifted a revised throttle alignment and stainless steel air filter. These equipment offers quicker, more responsive throttle and generally increases the car’s output levels. Compared to a standard air filter, the Cruze Sport’s new air filter can boost output up to 120 PS at 6,500 rpm.
Among the safety and security features incorporaated for the Cruze Sport 1.8L are the dual SRS Airbag, Traction Control, Electronicc Stability Program (ESP), ABS with EBD, an Immobilizer System and an anti-pinch power window system.
Chevrolet Colorado Sport in a new guise
The Colorado Sport 2.8 LTZ now hits an unprecedented 193hp and 500Nm of torque, thanks to new appointments and its durable Duramax powerplant. On the outside, the Colorado Sport LTZ gets more sportier with a new aerodynamic bumper guard, side fender, door visor, rear rollbar and 18-inch double 5-spoke wheels. Main exterior highlights also consist of the Projector headlights, frameless Windshield Wipers and LED rearlights. Colorado’s other editions available for the domestic market include Colorado LTZ 2.8 and Colorado Muscle 2.8.
The interior gets some plush appointments as well, with the addition of Colorado Sport insignias on the headrests, semi-bucket leather seats and leather door trims. On top of it all, a Reserve camera has been added into the interior package to emphasize on driver’s assistance. Other interior appointments include Chevrolet MyLink, Power Drive Lock Engagement, Auto Climate Control, multi-function steering, shifter knob, and an adjustable 6-Way driver seat.
The engine is paired to 6-speed auto transmission with Electronic 4WD Shift Switch, while the pick-up’s 5-Star ASEAN NCAP rating assures that these safety features are intact: Traction Control, ESP, ABS with EBD, Hill Decent Control System (HDCS), Hill Start Assist (HSA), Chevrolet Stabiliti Trak and Cornering Brake Control (CBC).
Both variants are updated editions and available now at Chevrolet Malaysia’s showrooms nationwide for view and test drive purposes. The Cruze Sport is priced at RM111,888 and the Colorado Sport is RM124,888, both prices do not include insurance but come with the standard 5-year warranty.
