If the Transformers really wanted to blend in with Earth technology in order to fight the Decepticons, they probably wouldn't have transformed into a rare Corvette prototype, a flame-job purple 18-wheeler, or a bright yellow Camaro. After all, those aren't exactly inconspicuous. You know what is, however? A Chevrolet Cruze.

That's why the Cruze gets the full Autobot treatment in China, where this car can pass by the crowds with nary a second glance. The small Chevy gets the bright-yellow treatment, with two oddly-mounted black stripes down the hood somewhere. Autobot badging on the wheels and fenders show off the owner's allegiance, while illuminated Transformers door sills round out the package. The 1.6-liter Ecotec engine remains the same.

The Transformers Cruze is only available in China right now, and will probably not make it over to America. Because, after all, a transforming robot defender of freedom would be blasphemous if it packed anything smaller than a 6.2-liter V8.

...from China Car Times: "Power will come from a 1.6T engine that is shared with the Buick Excelle and also available on the regular Cruze and produces 184bhp."

...where's that soundbite of Issac Hayes singing the theme from "SHAFT" when you need it?

Other than the engine, kind of glad that won't be making a debut in the US. It's a yellow Cruze with black stripes. Transformers are stand out cars cause the movie would be lame if they drove around as crappy Hondas and beat up hoopties.
