Report: Chevrolet Cruze could have potential in the U.S. market

The Chevrolet Cruze, sold only as a sedan, brought in some successful sales numbers for 2011, with 231,732 units sold. For this year, Chevy has decided to add a wagon variant for the Cruze that expected to boost sales even higher.

Although GM is still finishing up with the wagon, it is rumored that the model will be several inches longer, with the addition of a sloping rear window and a tailgate.

This isn’t the first variant that GM has made for the Cruze, however. A five-door hatchback is only available in markets outside the U.S., and while GM hasn’t said if they will be doing the same with the wagon, it may be a profitable move for the automaker to add it in the states. The Jetta Sport Wagon and Hyundai Elantra Touring are the only competitors the Cruze wagon would have in the states.
