Chevrolet Cruze Wagon Debuting at Geneva Motor Show

The Chevrolet Cruze has sold over one million copies since it launched in 2009, and now the company plans to expand the model's appeal. Following up on a five-door hatchback unveiled at last year's Geneva Motor Show, Chevrolet will launch a Cruze wagon at Geneva this March.

The new Cruze wagon measures 184.2 inches long, making it 3.2 inches longer than the sedan version and 6.7 inches longer than the European hatchback model. Chevrolet says cargo capacity ranges from 17.7 cubic feet with the rear seats in place, to 53.0 cubic feet with them folded flat. The Chevrolet Cruze sedan, for comparison, offers 15.4 cubic feet of trunk space.

The styling of the Chevrolet Cruze wagon closely mimics that of sedan and hatchback models, with standard chrome roof rails, steeply raked rear glass, and a sporty roof spoiler. Chevrolet Europe president Susan Docherty says the Cruze wagon is especially important for Chevrolet in Europe, where station wagons are far more popular than in the U.S. market.

It seems unlikely that the elongated Chevrolet Cruze will be sold in the U.S. market, given that the hatchback model hasn't yet been imported here. The company has, however, promised to sell a diesel-powered Cruze here by 2013.

I don't like GM but if this had a diesel engine and a dual clutch transmission, I would seriously consider it, even though I would prefer a higher roofline and more practicality. Looks almost like an Audi or other high-end product, but the front end needs to go.
