  • The 2017 Cruze Hatch

Ahead of its debut today (Jan 11) at the North American International Auto Show, Chevrolet unveiled the 2017 Cruze Hatchback.

Developed with all the technologies and dynamic driving attributes of the all-new 2016 Cruze sedan, the new hatch adds a functional and sporty choice for customers. It joins Colorado and Trax as the latest Chevrolets to push into new segments.

It goes on sale in the fall.

The Cruze Hatch has the same, class-leading 106.3-inch (2,700 mm) wheelbase as sedan models, but features a unique roof and rear-end structure – including wraparound taillamps and an integrated spoiler at the top of the liftgate.

It opens to offer 18.5 cu ft (524 litres) of cargo space behind the rear seat. With the rear seat folded, cargo space expands to 42 cubic feet (1,189 litres).

It is more than 91 kg (200 lb) lighter than the previous-generation model due largely to a body structure that is 100 pounds lighter and an engine that’s 20 kg (44 lb) lighter.

The Cruze lineup in North America is offered in L, LS, LT and Premier – and a more expressive RS package, featuring unique front and rear fascias, rocker panels, rear spoiler, fog lamps and – on the Premier model – 18-inch wheels.

The 2017 Cruze Hatch will be offered in LT and Premier trims, and with the RS package.

It is powered by a 1.4-litre turbo engine with direct injection and Stop/Start technologies, electric power steering and, on Premier models, a Z-link rear suspension

Interior with midsize-level roominess, including two inches greater rear legroom than Ford Focus and Hyundai Elantra

Available features include a heated steering wheel, heated front and rear seats, Athens leather-appointed seating surfaces, true French seams and halogen projector-beam headlamps with LED signature lighting.
