In a bid for more market appeal of the Chevrolet Cruze in Europe, General Motors has teamed up with Irmscher tuning to produce the Irmscher Cruze RS. Under the Irmscher tuning, the Cruze RS gets a 25-mm lowered suspension, rear spoiler and 18-inch alloy wheels in turbine style. A new exhaust system provides an extra 36 hp for the 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine, bringing the total to 186 hp.
The Irmscher Cruze RS is especially destined for German customers, with the model available for order directly from Chevrolet dealers. It may not lure many locals away from their beloved German brands, but it’s definitely something to think about when trying to jazz-up foreign brands and give them some added selling points.
