Chevrolet Europe President and Managing Director Susan Docherty said “The Cruze station wagon caters to an important market segment. It ticks all the boxes for European drivers in terms of distinctive design, dynamic driving, space and economy,”
Along with the Cruze station wagon the company will introduce an improved engine line-up available with all the Cruze models. Beside the ongoing 1.6 litre and 1.8 litre gasoline engines the company is going to offer a new 1.4 litre turbocharged gasoline, a new 1.7 litre diesel and an improved 2.0 litre diesel engine. All the engines are Euro-5 compliant and come with Stop Start System. Dimension wise the station wagon is 4,675 mm in length making it slightly longer than the sedan and hatchback models.
Some of the key changes brought by GM include a restyled front fascia, modified head-lamp interiors and fog lamps, new wheel styles on the exterior, improved center console and more choices for upholstery on the interiors.
A very interesting feature to come with Cruze SW and other Cruze models is MyLink infotainment system. This system is capable of transferring the functionality and content of your smart phone to the 7-inch high resolution colour touch screen display. Once your phone is connected you can access personal playlists, photo galleries, phone books, videos and other stored media and data, such as a special navigation app, through the infotainment system touch-screen.
