Chevy Cruze Wagon?



Reports out of India suggest that development of the long-rumored Chevrolet Cruze Wagon may be well underway. The wagon was spied by one of IndianAutosBlog.com's readers, and published on their site.

A comparison of this photo with a picture showing the full length of the Cruze Sedan shows many similarities. The windshield rake looks almost identical, with the roofline peaking at the same point over the b-pillar. The shape of the front side window, front door, side sills, and wheels looks very comparable. A change in the rear door, and rear side windows would be expected to match the added length, but the rear light cluster and rear bumper matches up pretty close.

It is also important to note that the car in the photograph shares a similar shape with the 2010 Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon, although the CTS is about 260 mm longer. GM serves as the parent company to both Cadillac and Chevy.

If Chevy does build a Cruze Wagon, there is no guarantee it would be available worldwide. The Cruze is in production in China, India, Russia, and South Korea, with three more plants (Australia, Thailand, U.S.) adding production next year. Chevy is building the car globally to more easily offer modified versions to fit local markets, including the five-door hatch to be sold in Australia as a Holden.

Market launch of the Cruze lineup began earlier this year in parts of Africa, Asia, and Europe. It will appear in North America beginning this spring. The car was also formally launched in the Indian market earlier today.

I like the idea of this more than the sedan....I'll take one...please let them build a wagon version. I know, I'm sad...lol.

Good for hauling stuff once in a while (don't have need for a truck or SUV right now). Would also be good for taking the dog places...could put his crate back there.

The Focus is such a small car, no where near as long and spacious as this one appears to be. I do also see the similarities between the CTS, which isn't neccesarily a bad thing, because the CTS is a pretty nice vehicle (I just hope it has more power than the CTS). I'm not really a huge fan of hatch-backs, but this one actually looks pretty nice.

Look at a 2003 Focus ZX5, the Cruze Wagon looks like a longer version of it to me.
