The Chevrolet Cruze saloon has already made something of a name for itself in the C-segment. Now that it’s been given the five-door hatch treatment, will it have its work cut out for it in a fiercely contested segment?
General Motors South Africa has announced that the Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback will be offered on the South African market this year, bringing the company’s local new model total to 13 for the 2010-2012 period.
Following the success of its Cruze saloon, Chevrolet revealed its intentions to monopolise on the popularity of this model when it unveiled a show-ready Cruze hatchback at last year’s Paris Motor Show. A production-ready version of this five-door vehicle will now début in Geneva.
