The Cruze Hatch Does Chevy Proud

The Cruze Hatchback

The Detroit Auto Show is a premier event on the American automotive scene. Everyone from giant car companies to independent components engineers gather to display their latest achievements. This year, Chevy paid respect to Detroit Pride with an exciting catalogue of new models and updated technology. One of the biggest announcements was the Fall release of the 2017 Cruze Hatch, the first compact hatchback in Chevrolet’s fleet.

The Cruze Hatch is a real show-stopper. It sits on the same wheelbase as its sedan cousins, but the distinctive roof and rear-end styling set it apart. With wraparound taillights, an integrated liftgate spoiler, and sharp body lines the Cruze is easily recognizable in a parking lot. It’s a youthful, forward-thinking style.

That isn’t an accident. Chevy is aiming this car at the younger crowd who want a cool car with the versatility to meet their needs and a price sticker that fits their budgets. To that end, there are three different trim levels to let drivers customize their experience. There may even be a Cruze Hatch performance model produced next year, though Chevy was making no promises.

The innovation isn’t limited to the outside of the car. The Cruze boasts a 1.4 liter Ecotec four-cylinder turbocharged engine. It has the light, rigid architecture found in the Cruze made even more stable by the roof design. There’s a respectable 18.5 cubic feet of cargo space, stretching to 42 cubic feet with a folded rear bench. Chevy favorites like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and the Teen Driver feature are all available for the Hatch as well as the Cruze sedan.
