Naza Quest is making available this Chevrolet Cruze Special Edition, which is limited to 300 units. Based on the standard Cruze 1.8 LT, the Special Edition adds on meaner styling and bigger wheels, and is priced “from just RM97,888”, which is the basic selling price (excluding OTR costs and insurance) for the standard car. But since there’s a “from” in there, we’re guessing that the final price will be higher if one opts for the full package.

What you get is a custom bodykit that includes a more aggressive front bumper which emphasises the air intakes, side skirts and a rear bumper with a diffuser style element. There are two cutouts for exhaust pipes, but from the pic, we can see that only one side (left) has an actual tip. There’s also a bootlid spoiler, LED wing mirror repeaters and door visors.

The bigger wheels are a major difference. This SE has 18-inch wheels wrapped with Falken tyres that replaces the standard Cruze’s 16-inch items. While they look good, there’s bound to be some trade off in ride comfort and performance. Speaking of that, there are no changes to the 140 hp 1.8-litre Ecotec/6-speed auto drivetrain combo.

Inside, the Cruze SE comes with leather seats with red stitching and scuff plates that feature an illuminated Cruze logo. We weren’t supplied a cabin pic, so I guess that you’ll have to head to the showroom to see the interior. By the way, this Special Edition supposedly pays homage to the Cruze WTCC car, which won the Manufacturers’ title for Chevy and the Drivers’ title for Yvan Muller in 2010.
