Chevrolet has introduced a new hatchback version of the Cruze sedan. Meant as a hot hatch entry into the compact market, the Cruze Hatchback retains most of the characteristics of the sedan it's based upon, but expands cargo space to 42 cubic feet (1,189 liters).

The Cruze Hatchback will enter showrooms in the Fall of 2016 with the LT and Premier trim levels as well as the RS package. Key features from the Cruze sedan are retained in the hatchback, including premium rear legroom, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard features, and an emphasis on class-leading standard safety features.

The Cruze Hatchback will use the 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine that powers the sedan. Fuel economy estimates are expected to remain consistent.

Perhaps even better looking than the Subaru Crosstrek, especially from the front. Sleeker with its lower center of gravity too.
