According to Chevrolet, the Cruze hatchback production version will draw styling influences from the Cruze Hatchback concept previewed at the Paris Motor Show last September. Most likely the production version is almost identical to the concept, with just some minor changes.
The Cruze hatchback will be offered with a new range of engines, including a new range-topping 161bhp diesel unit, and a standard six-speed manual gearbox.
“The Cruze Hatchback will give us a huge opportunity in the UK,” said Chevrolet Managing Director, Mark Terry. “This year alone, we’ve got four major new model launches that will have a significant positive impact on our product line-up in the UK, as well as the Camaro to cast a halo over the rest of our range.
The Cruze Hatchback will go on sale in the UK this summer, with prices and exact specifications to be confirmed nearer the time.
