Chevrolet Cruze wagon
That could be interesting…
Since the death of the Focus wagon,there is pretty much nothing to chose from in the US if you want a small inexpensive wagon.
And this one seems to look pretty nice too.
But wait. We don’t even have the regular Cruze yet!
This is another car GM has been teasing us with for years. Like the Camaro and the Volt.
The Cruze has been on sale overseas for a while now. And getting mostly so-so reviews.
So by next year, it won’t be the amazing small sedan GM is claiming it to be.
We shall see….

Maybe with our new Focus we will get the wagon back, that would be nice.
Vince, you are absolutely right about the mediocre reviews regarding the Cruze though. They haven't been glowing at all, pretty sad for a vehicle that is supposed to be GMs saving grace for a small car.
The upcoming Focus will absolutely blow it out of the water, and remember the 9th Generation Civic is right around the corner as well.
it's only a photoshop. It's not real.I saw the same picture with the photoshop and without photoshop and with the explication ! The Chevy Cruze SW must go on but it's not this one !

What do you expect?
It rolls out of a factory in Korea with a Daewoo sign above the door.
Wow! can they make the back a bit more ugly though?
What a ghastly C-pillar.
So much for rear view. Looks to be more of a hatch than a wagon.
hey just came across this.
THis is how Asian Chevy Cruze looks like. Its a sedan, looks good to me.
Already been revealed as a fake.
True I also viewed the photoshop image on another blog.
The reason the Focus disappeared from our shore because there is no market for it. I don't think a small wagon would work here. I vote for a 5-door hatch instead.
Wow, this looks pretty nice for a fake HHR replacement (isn't this what the Orlando if for?). Btw, we will not get a Focus Wagon, but C-Max instead.
Hyundai can say they have a REAL wagon with the Elantra Touring.
It's based on a Korean design, isn't it? None of GM's Korean based vehicles have ever been competitive. Initially I thought that the design was good. But now it just looks tired, and it's not even on sale yet. I'm sick of waiting for GM to finally get us the "good" stuff.
Folks.. hatchbacks Do Sell( look up Scion tC… especially, iirc, 2006-07… both years, nearly 80,000 units sold, each year. The Mazda3, hatch and sedan…in either 06 or 07..I forgot.. only sold 94,000 units…combined..not many more than a 3 door Scion tC/hatchback).
This is horrendous, though.
It wouldn't sell(but then again.. you never know).
The word from my Ford dealership is Fiesta will be a 5-door and sedan… not sure about the Focus(it should be out by the end of 2010, or so…iirc).
Honda will have the CRZ(3 door/hybrid/hatch).
Nissan will have the small Micra 5 door here next year…according to a story Vince posted(if I am recalling the information correctly, that is).
GM should just sell a 3 door, like that Opel/ Astra-hatchback-3 doors(that was supposedly to be our next generation Astra for Saturn, before GM announced closing the doors on Saturn).
Something sharp looking like that might sell…if marketed correctly(like the tC).
Too bad Scion/Toyota is giving up on FWD tC….in about a year…if reports are correct, for RWD sports car(that's ok… it's supposed to be a Toyota..but why not a FWD, something… 3 door hatch, for Scion?).
"Since the death of the Focus wagon,there is pretty much nothing to chose from in the US if you want a small inexpensive wagon"
Wrong…. There are some options:
1. Mazda3 hatchback is a good one.
2. Hyundai Elantra Wagon, has received very good reviews and already in the fourth generation, the Elantra is a reliable and affordable alternative.
3. Toyota Matrix
4. Suzuki sx4
It's too ugly to be real…even for GM.
Well, it looks pretty good to me. It may be a fake, but I don't think it would be a bad way to go for GM.
Elantra Touring is a good inexpensive wagon. Offers nearly the same space as mazda5 and gets favourable media reviews too.
Forgot about the VW Jetta wagon.
WHAT…NO BLACK FILLER AROUND THE C PILLAR!!!!! What were they thinking! I'm so dissapointed.
