Chevy Cruze Hatchback Interior Snapped before Paris Unveiling

|

While we're on the topic of bringing you pics of GM's debuts, here is the interior of the Paris Motor Show Cruze Hatchback. Much like the Orlando, the interior shouldn't come as a shock. After all, this is just a Chevy Cruze wearing a backpack.

The Cruze Hatchback, which was designed by Holden in Australia, will appear in Paris as a pre-production Chevy show car; however, as we recently showed you, it will also appear Down Under wearing a Holden nose and badges. As for North America, there's no telling as of right now (but keep your fingers crossed).

Under the hood we'll get the regular Cruze engine options, meaning your choice of a 113-horsepower 1.6-liter (gas), a 141-horsepower 1.8-liter (gas), or a 123-horsepower 2.0-liter turbodiesel. One wonders if the car may one day show up with the Orlando's high-output diesel engine.

Either way, the new Focus hatchback is going to have some stiff style competition when vying for consumer cash. Oh, and we need to get a high-output gasoline four-banger under the hood pronto to give the Focus ST something to worry about.

Hello acres of cheap shiny grey plastic! New Focus hasn't got a thing to worry about from Chevy...

I think these new chevy interiors are very nice, but I wonder if you have to opt for the fully loaded models in order to get plush looking interiors we see in these photos?

The Opel Astra is a vastly superior car. Its just a shame they axed it in Australia for this. Built on the same platform, two very different outcomes...

This is the first Chevrolet available in Europe that I'd consider

@ para :

I see they also did the same in South Africa, but I've seen pics of the Astra undisguised, testing...so I hope we will be getting...no one in their right state of mind will consider this in place of an Astra/Focus/Citroen/Golf/308...
