Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback

Chevrolet has revealed the production version of its Cruze five-door hatchback ahead of its appearance at the Geneva Motor Show early next week. Creating a hatchback version of the already well-established Cruze sedan was a natural move and one that's mainly targeted at the European market. The Cruze turned the fortunes for the then bankrupt GM like no other car. 

If you have seen the concept version of the Cruze hatchback that was unveiled at the Paris Motor show, then you will be very disappointed. All the cool features such as LED strips on the front bumper, the blue-tinted headlamps and the clear crystal tail lights are not present on the production ready model.

The hatchback will be offered in 1.6-liter and 1.8-liter petrol engines producing 124HP and 141HP respectively. There is also a 163 horsepower 2.0-liter turbo diesel. It would be real good news for India if Chevrolet plans to launch this hatchback in India.
