Video at Geneva: Chevrolet announces Focus-rivaling Cruze Hatchback


Can't quite stretch to Ford Focus, well you might be interested in this alternative, the hatchback version of the Chevrolet Cruze that was revealed at the Geneva show.

Due to go on sale this summer, the front looks identical to the saloon, while at the back Chevrolet describes the rear as 'coupe-like'. In fact, it's not massively different to the concept shown at the Paris motor show.

The new version of the Cruze will be offered with a range of diesel and petrol engines, including the 161bhp diesel I recently tried in the Orlando. The Cruze Hatchback's 400 litres of boot space is also competitive.
