For 2011 the WTCC Chevrolet Cruze won't have the 2.0 naturally aspirated engine anymore because of FIA Rules, now the WTCC Chevrolet Cruze cars will have a 1.6 Liter turbocharged engine. I don't agree with the rule, if it was to make the cars more eco-friendly like what is happening to Forumula 1 cars i think thats ridiculous. Also im hearing they made this move to help support the smaller engine market thats slowly emerging. Does anyone know the real reason to the engine downsizing?

here's the article i found out about the debut Chevrolet debuts 2011 WTCC Cruze with new 1.6 turbo

...the Chinese Cruze already has the 1.6LT (RPO: LLU) engine producing 184 Ps (181 hp)!

...wow! 306 bhp from 1.6L is a whopping 191 hp-per-liter...that's w-a-y higher than the 260 hp 2.0LT (RPO: LNF)!
