Chevy Cruze Station Wagon - first video also previews facelifted sedan

Chevrolet will be performing the world debut for the new Cruze Station Wagon at the Geneva Motor Show next week. We have already been treated to an official picture showcasing the rear end styling and now we can show you the model from all angles in this just released video.

It is suspected that the reason Chevrolet held back the front end styling reveal a little longer was because we are getting a preview of what to expect when the sedan gets its mid-cycle cosmetic updates.

The new Station Wagon variant of the Cruze range will be launched across Europe in the summer and there will be a choice of five different powertrains.

Diesel options will start with an improved version of the 2.0-liter engine that is already found in the sedan and there will also be a new diesel option. The new 1.7-liter VCDi engine featuring start-stop technology generates 130bhp (97kW / 132PS) and has CO2 emissions of 119g/km.

The 1.6-liter and 1.8-liter petrol engines from the sedan will also be available as well as a new 1.4-liter turbo gasoline unit.

Look out for full technical details as well as a first look at the interior on March 6 when the model is unveiled.

I like how Chevy is evolving. I test drove a Sonic/Aveo and a hatchback Cruze and was impressed by their driving and quality. Not exactly upto to Golf / Astra / Focus capabilities but very close and with a better driving position. Just give us stronger engines

I desagree, I have tried an Aveo and I believe it is still a little bit far from those (unless you are talking about the golf V)

Well, the Aveo, I compared it with the Corsa to be honest and it was quite good, but the Cruze feels very nice compared to the Golf and Astra. The problem it has a weak engine that doesn't let it show its potential.

Are station wagons popular in Europe anyone? I thought Chevy would go with a hatchback with that talk and sketches a few years back.

Yes wagons are popular in Europe especially, I believe, with the Germans. Chevy made a Cruze hatch version and it was launched a year or so ago. IMO this wagon looks more like the Renault Megan wagon http://goo.gl/vhLu6 than the Acura TSX wagon, mentioned above, since it was originally planned for Europe. But I'd like to see it come to North America. And as all of you know the Cruze is a Chevy-badged Daewoo Lacetti.

They are still very popular as they are good all arounders, family traveling, going to work, ski trips... but it is a very hard market as BMW and Mercedes are not that expensive in germany and they are the premium ones that everybody wants, plus now the cheaper Insignia, not half as good but it is cheap and looks good

Same for Switzerland, where many models are mostly sold as station wagon, as they offer a maximum of space on a minimum of surface. Chevrolet did a good job in adding a Cruze Station Wagon, as the Nubira Station Wagon was selling quite well, too. Chevrolet will also profit from the absence of Japanese models in this category (Nissan, Honda, Mazda and Toyota stopped their compact station wagons and left that field over to Kia's Ceed and Hyundai's i30CW). The Chevy Cruze Station Wagon looks good, but reminds me a bit of the Renault Megane Break.

I had no idea they were that popular. We used to have wagons here in the U.S. but that has died out and only a few manufacturers are doing wagons. But they are far from popular. I do like the utility of them.
