2012 Chevrolet Cruze hatchback?

It does seem like it.
When I saw a GM presentation of the Cruze before the Auto Show last month, they wouldn’t talk about other versions of the car.
But I am sure that, t least in Europe, they need the hatchback version to compete.
And after seeing the 2012 Focus, I am sure some people at GM are seriously considering it for the US as well.

  1. I just hope they don't make the black spacer in the c pillar bigger and that they use a REAL window there.

  2. 1) When Vince compared the Cruze to the new Focus… that showed how "dated" the Cruze will look… (if not looking dated now)…. when introduced to the USA.

    2) So adding a hatch will make it "cool", ( I know.. they are trying for folks who like hatchbacks)….but.. it will still , most likely, look date.

    3)This hatchback makes me miss the old Style(didn't say reliability..although I heard the last 1-2 years was ok….) of the "Geo" Storm(Isuzu Impulse, iirc).

    Here's hoping that the Aveo is better(even if a "5 -door" vehicle).

    A side note… information….
    If what I heard is true, the 3-door Storm sold almost as well as the Cavalier… in the early 1990's, before Isuzu quit building cars, iirc.

    I don't think this will sell as well as the old "Geo" Storm…but who knows what people want in 2010, vs 1990?

  3. It still doesn't look 1/4 as good as the Focus. I hope they are working on the replacement for this, they are already a lame duck and they haven't even hit the streets yet.
