2011 Chevrolet Cruze CS – Click above for high-res image
Well, now – look who got themselves a set of fancy new dancing shoes. Chevrolet Cruze
buyers in the UK can now outfit their thrifty little sedans with a trick lowered suspension, rear spoiler and contrasting wheels, straight from the factory. The look helps the car resemble the Silverline Cruze
currently bashing around the British Touring Car Championship
. We certainly dig on the white 18-inch multi-spoke alloys. They look right at home on the blue car in the high-res gallery shown here, especially given the more aggressive stance served up by the reworked suspension.
is calling the package the CS styling kit, and those wanting a little extra menace with their Cruze better get ready to shell out £1,595, or $2,410 at current exchange rates. As the Cruze starts at around $15,500, that's a not insignificant amount of dosh, but it also adds a good amount of presence to the visuals and hopefully improves handling.
Either way, we have a sneaking suspicion that we're not likely to see the CS package on our shores. Most Americans have no clue what the BTCC
is all about, and while the add-ons certainly sharpens the appearance of the Cruze, we're more likely to get a mild body kit
and not much else. Hit the jump
for the press release.

Chevrolet has pulled the wraps off a race-inspired option pack to further bring out the dynamic styling and handling of the Cruze saloon – the car favoured by the Silverline Chevrolet team in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.
The 'CS' styling kit consists of smart 18-inch white multi-spoke alloy wheels, lowered suspension, a boot spoiler, unique CS graphics and matching tailored carpet mats.
That's in addition to the standard Cruze specification, which includes such features as follow-me-home lighting, remote central locking, a CD-radio system with auxiliary input, premium soft-touch interior plastics and electric windows on even the entry-level model.
The CS Kit is available on all trim and engine variants of the Cruze at the time of order, and costs £1,595, including VAT and fully fitted, at participating Chevrolet retailers from mid-July onwards.
