Cruze Station Wagon joins range

The Cruze Station Wagon becomes the third variant in the Cruze range, complimenting the Cruze hatchback and saloon models.

Chevrolet is claiming a maximum load space of almost 1,500 litres with the Station Wagon’s rear seats folded down. Day-to-day load capacity with the rear seats in place is quoted as 500 litres.

The car also comes fitted with roof rails as standard, giving the option to further increase luggage capacity with a roof box.

New 1.7 turbodiesel for Cruze

The Cruze Station Wagon will be available with the same range of engines as the hatchback and saloon. These include a 122bhp 1.6-litre petrol, a 139bhp 1.8-litre petrol and a 161bhp 2.0-litre turbodiesel.

A new 130bhp 1.7-litre turbodiesel unit also joins the line up, equipped with start-stop technology as standard. It promises 119g/km CO2 emissions and annual car tax of just £30.

Styling and interior updates

Alongside the addition of a new engine, Chevrolet has also updated the styling of the Cruze range for 2012.

The Cruze Station Wagon introduces these styling changes, which include a redesigned front bumper, new lights and a range of new alloy wheel styles. A wider choice of interior fabrics completes the revisions.

This latest Cruze continues Chevrolet’s UK product offensive, with the firm’s performance-oriented Camaro and Volt hybrid range-extender vehicle both also set to hit showrooms in 2012.

The Chevrolet Cruze Station Wagon will make its debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show next month. Expect  full pricing and specification details to be released closer to the car’s launch.
