“The hatchback version of the Cruze is a massively important new car for us, as it not only appeals on a retail level, but also massively increases Chevrolet’s appeal to the fleet market – alongside the Orlando and the New Captiva, and with a new Aveo just round the corner, we have a truly holistic model range that will appeal to fleet managers, user-choosers and retail customers alike,” said Chevrolet Managing Director, Mark Terry.

Power for the 2012 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback either a 1.6L or 1.8L gasoline unit making 124-hp or 141-hp, respectively. Of course, Europeans also get a 2.0L turbo-diesel option making 163-hp.

Press Release:

Book a Cruze this summer – prices announced for new Chevrolet hatch!

  • Cruze 5-door on sale in July, from £13,995 on-the-road
  • New 163PS diesel engine with choice of six-speed transmissions
  • High levels of standard equipment across the range

The striking new Cruze hatchback arrives in Chevrolet dealerships next month, offering premium specification and great styling at a surprisingly affordable price.

With the range kicking off at only £13,995, the new model brings extra levels of sleekness and practicality to the motorsport-proven Cruze line-up, the saloon variant of which won both the 2010 British Touring Car Drivers championship and both drivers’ and manufacturers’ titles in the World Touring Car series.

It also moves the Cruze into the mainstream – since 1988, the compact hatchback market has been the UK’s most prolific market segment, especially among fleet customers.

Backed by a five-year warranty, the hatchback variant of the Cruze is offered in three trim levels, and with a choice of two petrol or one diesel engine. Further engine variants will follow, including a smaller capacity diesel. All have Electronic Stability Control as standard, along with a host of safety features comparable to the five-star Euro NCAP rated Cruze saloon.

The entry-level LS model, equipped with a 1.6 litre engine developing 124PS, comes with an array of standard equipment that is more commonly found on other manufacturers’ mid-trim variants. Air conditioning, remote locking, electric-front windows, follow-me-home headlights, electrically-adjustable heated door mirrors and a quality radio/CD player with auxiliary input are all included in the price.

Moving up the range, the LT model starts at an extremely attractive £14,895 on-the-road for the 1.6-litre 124PS petrol variant. A 1.6 auto and a 163PS 2.0 VCDi diesel manual are also available.

LT trim includes extra premium features, such as cruise control, electric windows all round, a multi-function trip computer, parking distance sensors,  16-inch alloy wheels, front fog lamps, steering wheel audio controls and a leather steering wheel and gearknob.

Cruze buyers who opt for the LTZ trim level can specify a 141PS 1.8-litre petrol engine with five-speed manual or auto transmission, or the 163PS 2.0 VCDi with a choice of either six-speed manual or six-speed auto gearboxes.

Starting at £16,095, the LTZ trim offers exceptional  levels of standard kit, including Bluetooth, a USB port, rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlights, an electro-chromatic rear view mirror, 17-inch alloys and aluminium-effect trim on the instrument panel.

Top of the range is the LTZ with Executive Pack, which gets leather trim as standard, along with satellite navigation and heated front seats. Available only as a diesel, prices start at £19,295.

The Cruze 5-dr is set to arrive in showrooms in July. For more information, or to find your nearest Chevrolet dealer, visit www.chevrolet.co.uk. A full list of prices appears below.
