Chevrolet Lumina SS

The 2007 Chevrolet Lumina SS was named the "Best Sports Saloon" for 2007 by CAR Middle East, which is one of the world's most authoritative and most established motoring titles. Shahzad Sheikh, Editor of CAR Middle East, stated that the Chevrolet Lumina SS integrated a 6.0-liter V8 Corvette engine under its bonnet, being a striking reinterpretation of the cult Lumina SS, providing high levels of performance, practicality as well as fun. The repesentatives of the magazine further announced that the Lumina SS deservedly won the ultimate sports saloon award, perfectly demonstrating GM's continuous commitment to offering cars that people really wanted to drive. Its V8 engine produces 360 HP at 5,700 rpm and 530 Nm of torque, while handling together with longitudinal grip for easier acceleration and shorter stopping distance are improved by the bigger 18-inch alloy wheels. Ensuring a smart blend of power and performance, the Electronic Stability Program allows the driver and passengers to feel perfectly safe during the journey. Thus, the risk of an accident is considerably reduced by specifically slowing down individual wheels. The distinctive look of the Lumina SS is enhanced by a superbly crafted external architecture which ensures excellent proportions with a hint of latent muscularity, a feature which makes the car unique on the road. The interior is spacious and comfortable, making the centre stack controls reachable for the driver. Hossein Hassani, marketing manager for Chevrolet in the Middle East, concluded that the wheelbase, front overhangs, pointed to the Lumina SS as an absolutely well proportioned vehicle, completed by a muscular powerplant and an interior that was driver-oriented, making it worthy of CAR Middle East`s award. The Chevrolet brand is well known for offering the highest levels of excitement, safety and driving pleasure, boasting the widest range of passenger cars in the Middle East.
