Although billed as a show car, the production version should not have many changes to the exterior design. The model is described to feature a coupe-like roofline to enhance the overall sporty appearance and it is built on a new body-frame integral system (BFI) which results in greater stability and solidarity. Expect GM’s 1.4L Turbo power plant to find its way into the hoot of the new hatchback.
The Chevrolet Cruze hatchback show car has a cargo capacity of nearly 400 liters and will feature 60/40 split rear seating. GM currently intends to launch the vehicle across Europe in mid-2011. I guess it will hit the Singapore shore before end of 2011. It could very well give its cousin, the Opel Astra, a good run for its money here.
