The 2012 Auto Expo to be held in Delhi from January 7th to 11th is drawing nearer and auto makers are gearing up to make their presence felt the motor show, touted as one of the biggest automobile extravaganza in the world. The US car maker, GM under the Chevrolet brand has recently revealed its plans on what is to be expected from its stall at the Auto Expo. In total, the company is planning on showcasing 6 cars at the motor show. The first undoubtedly worth mentioning would be the WTCC Chevrolet Cruze that is definitely going to be one of the show stunners. This rally car boasts of a 2 litre 4 cylinder engine with a 64 mm throttle body plenum with internal trumpets that produces a massive 285 BHP of power. It runs on Yokohama racing slicks and made its debut appearance at the 2010 Auto Expo.

Apart from this, Chevrolet is going to showcase its next compact hatchback, the Sail. Developed with GM china and SIAC, the Sail will be powered most likely by the 1.2-liter petrol engine that does duty on the current Chevrolet Beat which produces a power of 79 BHP. A 1.3-liter Fiat sourced Multijet diesel engine could also be an option in the near future. The car is expected to be launched by the month of April next year and will definitely boast of its balanced proportions and smart styling. Chevrolet is going to showcase its MPV, the Wulling-SIAC CN-100 but with a Chevrolet badge. The CN-100 will be powered by a 1.4-liter petrol engine producing a power of 102 BHP and also the 1.3-liter Fiat Multijet engine. Although the car wouldn’t score much on styling, the key strengths would lie in its cabin space with 7-seater configuration with folding second and third row seats and a very aggressive pricing.

The revised Captiva will also make it to the Auto Expo with a much larger 2.2-liter diesel engine that develops 184 BHP of power and revised bold styling. The Chevy Tavera with an updated BSIV compliant diesel engine would also be displayed at the expo. The updated engine has been sourced by the company from ICML (Sonalika). It develops a power of 100 BHP as compared to the earlier 80 BHP.
