Chevrolet has revealed a new five-door Cruze which it believes will help boost sales when it goes on sale in the UK this summer.
The new model marks the start of a four model product launch for Chevrolet in the UK this year.
It will also be offered with a new range of engines, with the range-topping diesel unit the same as that of the newly-launched Orlando, with 161bhp and a standard six-speed manual gearbox.
Mark Terry, Chevrolet UK managing director said: “The Cruze hatchback will give us a huge opportunity in the UK.
“This year alone, we’ve got four major new model launches that will have a significant positive impact on our product line-up in the UK, as well as the Camaro to cast a halo over the rest of our range.
“Alongside Orlando, the new Captiva and new Aveo, the Cruze hatch delivers greater choice and versatility to our customers, and as well as offering the same great value and quality finish that our retail customers are used to, it will give us a far greater presence in the hotly contested fleet market.”
The Cruze Hatchback will go on sale in the UK in the summer of 2011, with prices and exact specifications to be confirmed nearer the time.
