General Motors has released three images of the upcoming 2012 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback 5-door (HB5), which will debut next month at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.

“The Cruze Hatchback will give us a huge opportunity in the UK,” said Chevrolet Managing Director, Mark Terry. “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. ”

Buyers of the 2012 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback will have to choose from the same engine options offered in the sedan. That means you can pick from 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.

Pricing details for European markets will be announced closer to launch. The Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback has not been approved for the United States.
