    2016 Chevy Cruze coming in a Hatch?

    So I've seen pictures and reading in places that the Cruze may come in a hatch especially with the diesel! Anyone know if this is true?

    there most likely be a HATCH for GLOBAL markets (Australia) and HOPEFULLY be brought to USA BUT I have NO "proof" and for the DIESEL I doubt it but again nothing to say ether way except the CURRENT Diesel did NOT sell at all - BUT was MIS positioned / OPTIONED and IMHO NEEDED a stick option and be available on a mid level LT trim NOT just a LTZ trim

    Not sure about that Diesel hatch combination. I have heard we would get an additional body style besides the sedan

    I believe the hatch will be making it to North America this time round.

    The Focus has offered a hatch forever. The Mazda3 makes it look oh so nice. And they could really use something to get back all those Vibe customers they lost.

    The top dog said it would but he's been known to bloviate and there have been no sightings of mules or prototypes yet. If it's happening I'd say that it's a ways off yet. However, I'll add myself to the list of those who would like to see it happen.

    Re: 2016 Chevy Cruze coming in a Hatch?

    I wonder what in the previous argument AGAINST a Cruze hatchback for North America will change this time. I'm all for it, I loved my Vibe and Optra5, and would buy a 5-door over a 4-door almost every time, but if they couldn't make the numbers work for the past generation, I'd be curious how they could this time around.

    it had nothing to do with numbers, they didn't think americans liked them but now with Ford having the focus and fiesta selling well besides the VW golf, Hyundai elantra GT, kia forte5 etc it's time to have something in that segment

    For some reason, I kinda doubt it will make it to the US.

    But of course it was about numbers! Some GM calculation showed that the return on investment on a US Cruze hatch wasn't worth it. All of the hatches you mentioned were on sale when the current-gen Cruze hatch was introduced, so my question still remains: why would GM introduce it this time? I hope they do, but I truly want to know why this time it somehow makes sense when 4 or 5 years ago it didn't.
