A show car version of the new Cruze hatchback will be Chevrolet's star attraction at this year's edition of the Paris motorshow, which kicks off on September 30. Even though GM uses the term 'show car', the five-door hatchback version of the Cruze is virtually production ready minus some show-floor bling such as the blue hue on the headlamps, big wheels and the LED daytime running lights.
While keeping the front end and taut body lines of the sedan model, the refreshingly stylish hatch comes with a sweeping coupe-like roofline and a unique rear end treatment. GM has not yet issued any photos of the cabin, but don't expect any changes over the four-door saloon.
According to the automaker, cargo capacity for the Cruze hatchback is close to 400 liters and will feature 60/40 split rear seating.
The available engine range will most likely be identical to the sedan that is currently offered in Europe with two petrol engines, a 113HP 1.6-liter and a 141HP 1.8-liter, plus a 123HP 2.0-liter turbo diesel.
The new Cruze 5-door hatchback will go on sale across Europe mid 2011 with prices announced nearer the launch date. More markets will get the car shortly after, though GM has not said if North America will be one of them.
Wayne Brannon, president and managing director of Chevrolet Europe, beleives the addition of a hatchback version to the range will further bolster the car's sales.
"Hatchbacks play a critical role in many markets," said Brannon. "The total compact segment in Europe represents around 4.8 million units which is over a quarter of the total market, with hatchbacks representing around 65% of that volume. We therefore expect to see increased business in a number of regions, while sending out a signal that Chevrolet is now a serious mainstream player in Europe."
The Cruze hatch is one of four world Chevrolet premieres at the Paris show and will join the new Orlando MPV, Captiva SUV facelift and the new Aveo.

Since its launch in the UK in 2008, the Chevrolet Cruze has represented a
budget alternative to mainstream family cars. In 2011, the four-door saloon
was joined by this more practical hatchback model, and with its combination
of spacious and verstaile cabin, decent-sized boot and a punchy and
efficient diesel engine, the Cruze is more appealing than ever.
It has a load area of 413 litres with the seats in place, which expands to
883 litres with them folded flat. The distinctive dashboard is said to take
cues from the firm's Corvette sports car and all models are generously
2011 Chevrolet Cruze Test Drive Impressions
I recently visited the East Coast for a GM sponsored introduction to the
2011 Chevrolet Cruze. In addition to driving the turbo 1.4L Cruze, I was also able to drive the
Toyota Corolla S and Honda Civic for comparison. As always, I was very
rushed and I apologize for the sloppiness that is my video style.
Hopefully you are able to get something from this. A written review will be
forthcoming. General Motors covered my expenses to attend this media
