Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback to get Geneva unveiling
Chevrolet is set to reveal a hatchback version of the race-bred Cruze at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show in March.
The production-ready show car will take styling cues from the concept exhibited at the Paris Motor Show last year, including the sweeping coupe roofline and short front and rear overhands.
“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 launch this year alongside the new Orlando MPV, Captiva SUV and Aveo supermini, offering more versatility while retaining the Chevrolet’s renowned value for money.
“Motor sport is part of Chevrolet’s DNA. What we learn on the track is passed down to our road cars, and this latest incarnation of Cruze proves that," Terry added.
The Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback will go on sale in the UK this summer, with prices and full specification details yet to be confirmed.
