    2011 Cruze Wagon

    I'm a Vibe owner, I like the Cruze but I would miss the Wagon practical side. Vibe's gone, Cruze Wagon is not coming to North America and I don't like for the Orlando. Perhaps GM should have kept the Vibe and relaunch it alongside the Cruze...

    It's a simple Photoshop but the Cruze and Vibe had a similar front layout:

    There are many here that agree with you that GM should not have abandoned the Vibe segment along with the HHR, in the N/A market anyway.

    The Encore is a small Luxury Crossover and they call the Chevy Trax a city-sized SUV.

    They're not Wagons to me. Also I don't like the overuse of plasticky trims and moldings at the bottom of doors and on bumpers on these vehicles. Same for the Orlando.

    I feel that GM could and should have kept a wagon like the Vibe or change it into a Cruze wagon (or use the existing Cruze Wagon or Hatchback).

    And you drive a Vibe? Is this ironic or schizophrenic?

    The 09' Vibe has no more than the current Cruze or Malibu and whatever's there is body color.

    Orlando, Trax and Encore have have too much dark grey and cheap metallic plastics that even the Chevy Avalanche no longer has.

    Re: 2011 Cruze Wagon

    The Vibe along side the cruze wagon? Talk about wasting company resources. They should have something for this gap in their product line but to have 2 (you can argue more vehicles fill the void (or voids) to some extent or another.)

    What I don't understand is that as car prices have climbed and the economy still is hurting GM hasn't flcused more on small wagons and SUV's that offer good gas mileage and some occupant room as well as some sort of cargo room for things. When you have the Spark,Sonic, and Encore as really the only offerings, its a big disappointment because GM is completely misreading the market. VW for example has admitted they are trying to be the #1 car maker with sales in the world. They have a lot of small to medium sized wagons/suv's. GM could have easily imported cars or pieces of products and assembled them here in the US to correct this oversight.
