Chevrolet has dropped a bomb on the compact motor vehicle group with the Chevy Civic. Sad to say, Chevrolet experienced to modify the name to the Cruze since the moniker now belonged to Honda. A equivalent challenge played out when Kia introduced the Civic but had to alter the name to the Forte just after they recognized the trademark error they experienced created.
