    I like it - although it is more like the Audi A3 sportback than a full sized wagon. I wouldn't mind seeing it a bit longer in the cargo area.

    thanks - I love the "sport tourer" name so you won't find me using "wagon" any time soon

    While I like the hatch concept, it needed to have a little more room!

    Re: Cruze Sports Tourer - based on Cruze hatch concept and Astra Sports Tourer

    I really like the idea of a wagon or tourer. The only thing I would prefer to see in that design would be a less dramatic slope of the upper rear window line.

    It needs to run more horizontal at the rear door to provide a larger passenger opening for easier entry and exit. Similar to the Audi A4 Avant.
    Research is what I am doing when I don't know what I am doing.

    This looks excellent. I tend to prefer this size of "tourer" and honestly, this is a more fitting look for the Cruze than the hatch variant.

    They need something to replace the HHR and Vibe.

    Although, a Cruze wagon probably won't have the Astra's A-pillar windows. The Cruze sedan doesn't.
    Peace,

    thanks for the feedback all!

    I'm tweaking the design to make it a little longer in the boot and adjusting the side windows to make them a little taller/flatter

    -lengthen the boot and adjust the side glass/door frame

    I was looking at the pictures without reading all the posts and it took me awhile to see the changes. I like both but the revision is better. Great job!
