Chevrolet Cruze Station Wagon revealed

The all-new Chevrolet Cruze Station Wagon will make its debut at the Geneva motor show early next month.

Sitting alongside the saloon and hatchback versions, the Cruze estate will offer up to 1500 litres of load space with the seats folded which compares well with class leaders such as the Ford Focus Estate and Skoda Octavia Estate.

Engine options for the Cruze Station Wagon include a new 130bhp 1.7-litre VCDi diesel, which has stop-start technology as standard and CO2 emissions of 119g/km.

The saloon is currently offered with a 2.0 VCDi engine in the UK, and the hatchback is available with 1.6 and 1.8 petrols, and a 2.0 diesel.

New styling tweaks for all 2012 Cruze models include a redesigned front end, revised headlamps and foglamps, and new alloy wheel designs. Inside, the new cars get an updated centre console and an extended choice of seat finishes.

On-sale dates and pricing will be announced closer to the show.
