Ohh wow such a witty and original comment, did you come up with that all by yourself or did you jump in a time machine to get it from about 3 years ago???
Guess there always has to be one person to try and rain on someones parade.... Now run along back to your jap ****.
He didn't really make it up. The Cruze was designed by Deawoo in South Korea (and other places including Japan). Aside from assembly the car itself doesn't have that much to do with Holden or Australia aside from the badge, (Much like the Astra).
The Chevrolet Cruze is a General Motors (GM) automobile, spanning two unrelated models. Under joint venture with GM, Suzuki in Japan manufactured the original iteration, a subcompact hatchback, between 2001 and 2008.
Since 2008, the "Cruze" nameplate has referred to a globally developed, designed, and manufactured four-door compact sedan, complemented by a five-door hatchback body variant from 2011. Badged Holden Cruze in Australasia and Daewoo Lacetti Premiere (from 2008 to 2011) in South Korea
Underpinned by the front-wheel drive GM Delta II platform, GM has confirmed the Cruze development program occurred under a global design and engineering team. The Company said GM Daewoo in South Korea played a leading role in the design and engineering of the Cruze, along with GM's German-based Opel division
I'm also fairly certain that the engine (Aside from the diesel engine, which was produced by GM/Fiat) is a Daewoo engine.
