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 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.

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 vs 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition! - Head 2 Head Ep. 52
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman travels to Barber
Motorsports Park for a head to head matchup with the brand new Chevy Camaro Z/28 and a well
known heavyweight, the Nissan GT-R. But not just any GT-R, the 2014 Track
Edition which packs a 545 hp twin-turbo
V-6, a 6-speed dual clutch transmission, sticky Dunlop tires and AWD
traction into a car without rear seats. The Z/28, by way of contrast,
features a massive 7.0-liter naturally-aspirated V-8, a 6-speed manual
transmission, and tail-out RWD. While it does still have rear seats, nearly
every other non-essential component has been removed. Moreover, the Z28's
tires might be even stickier! The front ones, enormous 305-sections, are
certainly the widest tires ever bolted to a production car. Both cars are
phenomenal, and both cars make rational men scream, "Gimme!" But only one
can come out on top. Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.
