2012 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback
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.
Chevy Sonic Car Animation
The Chevy Sonic is a small car with aggressive, youthful design in five-door and sedan models. Each of the two Sonic models delivers a surprisingly roomy passenger environment and generous cargo space -- including rear-seat roominess and cargo space that tops key competitors. A wide, planted stance with wheels-at-the-corners proportions conveys performance, while progressive, raked body lines suggest movement even when the car is stationary. The Chevrolet Sonic is available with an Ecotec 1.4L turbo with an estimated 138 hp (103 kW). The Ecotec 1.4L turbo's power ratings are estimated at 138 horsepower (103 kW) and 148 lb.-ft. of torque (200 Nm) between 1,850 rpm and 4,900 rpm. More importantly, the Sonic sedan and Sonic hatchback are the only small cars built in America. Production of the Sonic begins later in 2011 at GM's Orion Assembly Center in Michigan, which received a $545 million investment in upgrades and retooling, and will help restore approximately 1,000 jobs in the metropolitan Detroit area.
