Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback Finally Revealed!

Here it is, folks! The long-fabled Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback is real and it’s coming to Canada this fall.Cruze Hatchback

Chevrolet Canada yesterday pulled the wraps off the all-new Cruze variant, ahead of its official debut at the North American International Auto Show later this month.

What’s New & Different?

Visually, the Cruze hatchback wears a new roof, wraparound taillamps, and an integrated spoiler at the top of the liftgate. We’re big fans of the look and in our eyes Chevrolet did a great job creating  a Cruze hatchback. Sharp!

The big news is out back, as the rear half of the Cruze has been transformed into a more shapely, cavernous space that can easily gobble up gear and goodies. You’ll be treated to more than 524 litres (18.5 cubic-feet)  of cargo space behind the rear seats and a massive 1,336 litres  (47.2 cubic feet) with the seats folded down.

Woo-hoo! Nearly 50 cubic-feet of cargo space with the seats folded.

While the Cruze sedan is available in four trims- L, LS, LT, and Premier- the Cruze hatchback is available in LT and Premier trims, and with the RS package.

Like it’s sedan brethren, the new Cruze hatch features a turbocharged 1.4L inline four-cylinder engine with 153 hp & 177 lb-ft of torque, providing the perfect balance of power and efficiency.

New taillights wrap around the body and onto the liftgate.

Added cargo space aside, the Cruze hatchback comes equipped with all of the goodies found on the new, soon-to-be-released 2016 Chevrolet Cruze, like:
– Segment-exclusive Apple CarPlay/Android Auto
– Standard MyLink radio
– Optional 4G LTE wi-fi
– Standard start/stop technology
– Two-inches greater legroom than Focus or Elantra
– Plus a raft of safety features!
