The hotly anticipated Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback revealed in production form by the company and confirmed for Geneva debut. European sales begins from Summer 2011. The Cruze Hatch styling remains loyal to the concept model revealed at Paris show last year.

Chevrolet Cruze turned out to be a huge success for Chevrolet and GM as it was the second best selling model globally in 2010. It helped a lot with the amazing record of one car sold every 7.4 seconds. The hatchback is set to boost that figure by conquering new markets.

The Cruze’ sales performance is quite incredible, because when it was first launchpad it looked like a bit of a simpleton and no one though i could rival Japanese and Korean models. But the designer had got it spot on and with a dash of quality sprinkled on the top, the Cruze went on to become a winner.

Chevy Cruze Hatchback will be offered with a new range of engines, with the range-topping diesel unit the same as that of the newly-launched Orlando, with 163PS and a standard six-speed manual gearbox.

“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.

Alongside Orlando, the New Captiva and New Aveo, the Cruze hatch delivers greater choice and versatility to our customers, and as well as offering the same great value and quality finish that our retail customers are used to, it will give us a far greater presence in the hotly contested fleet market.”

Pricing and specs for different markets are yet to be confirmed.
