The Chevrolet Cavalier was a value-oriented car for the budget-conscious buyer that was eventually replaced by the Cobalt, which was then subsequently replaced by the current Chevrolet Cruze. While there aren’t many drivers pining for the return of the Cavalier, Chevrolet is reintroducing the model…in China. You read right. The new Chevrolet Cavalier will make its debut in China this month.
There have been rumors and whispers about the introduction of the Chevrolet Cavalier to China and now it’s officially confirmed. Don’t start looking up how to import the Cavalier just yet though. It may not be as incredible as it sounds.
The new Chevrolet Cavalier sedan is basically a Chevrolet Cruze Classic with a new skin and face. The Cavalier falls under the new Chevrolet Cruze, also recently released in China. While it may not seem like a major move here in the United States, it does strengthen Chevrolet’s small car lineup in the world’s largest automotive market.
Powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, the Cavalier bears cues similar to the rest of the Chinese lineup. The interior boasts the dual cockpit design that many of the brand’s models wield.
Don’t expect the Cavalier to hit the United States anytime soon. The Chevrolet Spark and Sonic are both smaller than the Cruze, making the Cavalier a no-go.
Here at Chip Wynn, we’re excited for the return of the Chevrolet Cavalier even if we can’t get it here in the United States!
