Next estate body shape joins hatchback and saloon in Chevrolet Cruze model range
6 March 2012

The Chevrolet Cruze Station Wagon (SW) have been revealed at the Geneva motor show today.

The SW body variant follows the saloon and hatchback version. At 4678mm, the Chevrolet Cruze SW is slightly longer than the hatchback (4510mm) and saloon (4597mm) models.

Load space ranges from 500 litres up to the window line in the rear to nearly 1500 litres up to roof level with the rear seats folded down.

The new model will be available with a new 130bhp 1.7-litre VCDi diesel engine, which features stop-start technology as standard and CO2 emissions of 119g/km.

The saloon variant is currently offered with a 2.0 VCDi engine in the UK, while the hatch comes with 1.6 and 1.8 petrols and the 2.0 oil-burner.

The exterior design of the Cruze SW features a tapering single arch roofline and comes with roof rails as standard.

All three Chevrolet Cruze body shapes are getting a number of exterior and interior styling changes for 2012.

These include a remodeled front fascia, modified headlamp interiors and fog lamps, and new wheel styles on the exterior, while the interior receives refinements to the center console and a greater choice of seat finishes.

UK pricing and on-sale dates have yet to be announced.

As with a lot of cars, it would appear that the estate version is the best resolved design! looks quite nice IMO.

Chevrolet are clearly chasing Hyundai with this car, even down to the engine spec.

I agree with Crixter, it does appear to be the best looking variant of the car so far.

 

 

It's all about the twisties........

and Vauxhall/Opel too? Why pay so much more for an Astra Estate?

The same reason people will buy a VW over Skoda.

Higher quality materials and running gear.

Is the difference in running gear so great nowadays? And I wonder if the Vauxhall badge is so much better perceived than Chevrolet.
