Press Release

Chevrolet Cruze Station Wagon - the perfect combination of practicality, style and value

Launched in 2009, the Cruze is the Chevrolet brand's most successful model with over 1.3 million units sold worldwide up to the first quarter of 2012. The arrival of the new Station Wagon broadens the Cruze’s appeal further still.

Designed for families and individuals with an active lifestyle, the Cruze Station Wagon builds on the considerable strengths of the hatchback and saloon models, and adds greater practicality.

"We believe the Cruze Station Wagon is a winning formula for European drivers," said Susan Docherty, President and Managing Director of Chevrolet Europe. "It offers space and versatility along with new fuel-efficient engines." Docherty said.

Compact cars represent the largest segment in Europe, accounting for about 17 percent of all vehicles sold. Of these, estate variants constitute nearly a quarter. Estate buyers in this sector value space and practicality, but also demand the same levels of performance, refinement and responses of a compact hatchback or saloon.

The Cruze Station Wagon has been designed to meet and exceed the expectations of customers in this important new car segment. With flexibility at its core, it satisfies the requirements of a broad range of customers – from growing families to adventure sports enthusiasts.

Sharp design – a Cruze family tradition

The new Cruze Station Wagon features the same sporty design language displayed by the hatchback and saloon models. Thanks to its muscular stance, powerful concave shoulder line and dramatic single arch roofline, the Station Wagon combines style and practicality in one perfectly proportioned package. To further enhance the Station Wagon’s practical aspirations, slim mounting rails run the length of the roof.

At the front, the now familiar dual-port grille, together with the iconic golden bowtie instantly identifies the Station Wagon as a Chevrolet. Along with all 2013 model year Cruze models, the Station Wagon features a revised bumper design that houses the fog lights in a new position.

The interior features fluid lines and Chevrolet's signature dual cockpit, with a wrap-around front fascia that flows into the driver and passenger door.

Spacious boot and practical interior layout

Space is abundant in the Cruze Station Wagon, both for passengers and the cargo they wish to transport. Boot measures 1,024 mm in length in its basic configuration and allows for storage of up to 500 litres up to the window line. With the rear seat backs (60/40 split) are folded flat, the capacity figure rises to an impressive 1,478 litres.

The Cruze Station Wagon also features a number of additional features that allow customers to make full use of the space available. These include tie-down points for larger items of luggage and a hidden compartment under the rearmost section of boot floor.

In the main cabin area, occupants can take full advantage of extra storage areas in the doors, on the front seat backs, and the split-level glovebox.

Available accessories will include cargo nets, a cargo organiser box with flexible partition walls, a roof box, as well as bicycle, ski and surf board carrier systems.

Enhanced engine line-up

The Cruze Station Wagon is available with four powerful and highly efficient engine options: a 1.7-litre VCDi, a 2.0-litre VCDi and two petrol motors (1.6-litre and 1.8-litre).

The new 1.7-litre diesel engine is equipped with an intercooled turbocharger and Start/Stop as standard. It generates 130PS and can reach 60mph in 10.0 seconds. Thanks to an impressive torque output of 300Nm between 2,000-2,500rpm, this engine also delivers exceptional in-gear flexibility.

With combined fuel consumption of 62.7mpg and a CO2 output of 119g/km the 1.7-litre diesel unit is the most frugal ever offered in a Cruze.

The 1.6-litre petrol variant generates 124PS and is offered with five-speed manual transmission, while the 141PS 1.8-litre petrol model is mated to a six-speed automatic as standard. Fuel consumption for the two petrol models is 44.1mpg and 39.2mpg respectively, with CO2 outputs of 151g/km and 170g/km.

The 2.0-litre VCDi variant available on the LTZ trim develops a 163PS and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission as standard.

Proven chassis puts safety first

The Cruze Station Wagon shares its strong unibody structure with the hatchback and saloon. As a result, it delivers the same, precise handling and safe roadholding that Chevrolet customers demand. Thanks to the use of high-strength steel in more than 60 percent of this structure, the Cruze enjoys exceptional levels of rigidity and strength – key qualities for both chassis refinement and occupant protection.

Proven McPherson strut front and compound crank type rear suspension designs have been specifically tuned for the Station Wagon and contribute to the vehicle's low centre of gravity, ride comfort and driving dynamics.

The safety architecture of the Cruze Station Wagon is nearly identical to that designed for the saloon – a car that has earned a five-star safety rating from EuroNCAP. In addition to the vehicle's sophisticated body structure, six airbags, Electronic Stability Control, Traction Control, as well as four-channel anti-lock brakes are all offered as standard.

Five three-point seatbelts, ISOFIX anchoring system on the two rear outboard positions and a collapsible pedal assembly are also part of the Cruze’s standard safety package.

Competitive pricing and premium equipment levels

The Cruze Station Wagon range consists of three trim levels: LT, LS and LTZ, with four engine options available: 1.6 petrol, 1.8-litre petrol, 1.7-litre VCDi and 2.0-litre VCDi. Prices start at £15,375.

Standard equipment fitted across the range includes air-conditioning, electric front windows, and remote central locking and follow-me-home headlights. Mid-spec LT models add more premium features including 16-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, rear parking sensors and leather steering wheel and gearknob. Range-topping LTZ models add, among other items, Bluetooth connectivity, climate control, satellite navigation and rear parking camera.
