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.

2011 Dodge Durango
Dodge is jumping back into the sport utility (SUV) segment with the 2011
Dodge Durango, a three-row vehicle spacious enough to carry the entire crew
and performance-tuned to thrill anyone who truly loves to drive. Dodge
Durango will lead the Dodge brand's new product onslaught for 2011.
From its sleek exterior design to its modern, spacious interior, and
intelligent, fuel-efficient and powerful powertrain options, the 2011 Dodge
Durango is all-new from the inside out. And the changes are more than skin
deep. The Dodge Durango's stiffened unibody structure is engineered with
the driving enthusiast in mind. The end result is a vehicle that delivers
premium driving performance combined with SUV capability and crossover
The all-new Dodge Durango features two engine options: the standard
fuel-efficient 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine and the available 5.7-liter
HEMI engine with fuel-saving, Multi-displacement system (MDS) four-cylinder
mode. Both engines feature variable-valve timing (VVT) and are available
with all-wheel drive. In addition to great efficiency, the engines provide
exceptional V-6 and V-8 towing capability with standard trailer sway
control (V-8 - 7,400 lbs. and Best-in-class V-6 - 6,200 lbs.). When
equipped with the HEMI® V-8, the all-new Dodge Durango can tow more weight
than a 24-foot boat and trailer.
The Dodge Durango's all-new interior is a surprise owners always deserved
but never expected. Created by the same interior design studio that
designed the much-lauded interior in the Ram trucks and the all-new Jeep
Grand Cherokee, the Dodge Durango's luxurious interior materials and
thoughtful touches will make owners and their crews want to jump in, hunker
down and thoroughly enjoy even the longest drive. Everywhere they touch,
Dodge Durango passengers will feel materials that are refined and soft to
the touch. Not only is it a pleasure to behold, it is extremely functional
and gives owners a first-class experience, regardless of the trim level.
Dodge Durango's interior is also extremely comfortable for all three rows
of passengers, and there's a surprising amount of interior flexibility.
With 22 different seating configurations, there's plenty of room to store
and move plenty of people and their gear.
The all-new 2011 Dodge Durango also offers consumers 45 safety and security
features, including standard front seat-mounted side air bags and standard
side-curtain air bags that cover passengers in all three rows, as well as
all-new standard active head restraints. Electronic Stability Control also
is standard. Other available safety and security technologies include
Blind-spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path detection, Forward Collision
Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control and Keyless Enter-n' Go.
The best part is, consumers will get all of the all-new Dodge Durango's
capability, functionality and flexibility and still get excellent fuel
efficiency. In fact, drivers can go more than 500 miles, that's the
distance from San Diego to San Francisco or from Detroit to New York City,
without having to stop for fuel.
Built at the Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit, Mich., the new 2011
Dodge Durango arrives in showrooms in the fourth quarter of 2010.
2010 BMW M6XR by Manhart Racing
Usually an output bigger than 600 HP and a top speed of 200 mph are
specifications for a sports car, and not an SUV. However, when you put
together a BMW with the appropriate specifications, anything is possible!
Manhart Racing has developed a new M6XR Twin turbo package for the BMW X6M that takes the V8's
specifications to an impressive 687 HP. In order to obtain this amazing
output, the tuner had to overhaul the engine's electronics, including DME
control, and had to put in a catalytic conversion including modifications
to the converters. The result is a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.7
seconds and a top speed of 198 mph. And if this still isn't enough for the
typical enthusiast, the tuner has also announced plans for a new version
that will develop more than 700 HP.
The tuning package also includes a new stainless steel Exhaust system, with four 90 mm tailpipes and
two 200-cell HJS racing catalytic converters and a new set of 23" sport
Amazingly, the output provided for the X6 M is even larger than the power
added to the BMW M3 E92 back in February. When Manhart Racing attacked the
sports car, they were only able to squeak out 655hp!

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
2012 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback
Geneva world premiere for Cruze hatchback
New model to build on global success of Chevrolet's favorite car
Cruze hatchback cements Chevrolet's mainstream credentials in Europe
One of seven new entries in centenary year
Zurich. Chevrolet's award-winning - and now World Touring Car Championship
(WTCC)-winning - Cruze will further enhance its credentials this year when
the new hatchback version goes on sale in spring. The full production model
makes its world premiere at the 81st international Geneva Motor Show, March
3 - 11.
The timing of the new model couldn't be better for Chevrolet, with the
manufacturer being crowned World Touring Car Champions in December for the
first time. Chevrolet's racing success proves the dynamic potential and
qualities of the Cruze, while the launch of a new 5-door hatchback model in
addition to the sedan, is further evidence of Chevrolet's intention to
bring value for money to the mainstream segments of the European market.
A show car version of Chevrolet's compact contender was shown at the Paris
Motor Show last September, and was warmly received.
Sales of the Cruze last year surpassed the Aveo to become Chevrolet's top
selling passenger car nameplate globally. Since its launch in the spring
2009, the Cruze sedan has been warmly welcomed by markets all over the
world, greeted as a step change for the brand with customers attracted to
its coupe style, build quality, 5-star NCAP rating and driving dynamics. It
was also elected the AUTOBEST car of 2010 by a jury of leading auto writers
in Central and Eastern Europe.
The introduction of the new Cruze hatchback is critical in Europe, as Wayne
Brannon, president and managing director of Chevrolet Europe explains.
"Hatchbacks play a critical role in many markets. The total compact segment
in Europe represents over a quarter of the total market, with hatchbacks
representing around 65% of that volume.
"The new Cruze hatchback cements that Chevrolet's claim for a place among
the mainstream brands in Europe, and it's a vehicle that will bring new
levels of value against some of the more established competition."
