The major attraction at the Chevorlet stand in Geneva this week was the Cruze station wagon. Making its world premiere the wagon joins the hatchback and notchback versions of Chevrolet's most popular car.

A choice of five powertrains is available for the entire Cruze line-up as of summer 2012. The petrol 1.6-liter and 1.8-liter engines from the sedan will carry over as well as a new 1.4-liter turbo gasoline unit. Diesel options will start with an improved version of the 2.0-liter engine that is already found in the sedan and there will also be a new diesel option. The new 1.7-liter VCDi engine featuring start-stop technology generates 130bhp (97kW / 132PS) and has CO2 emissions of 119g/km.

Load space ranges from 500 liters up to the window line in the rear to nearly 1,500 liters up to the roof top with the rear seats folded down.

Simultaneously, the facelift design changes are being introduced in 2012 for all Cruze models, including the front fascia, modified head-lamp interiors and fog lamps, and new wheel styles. The interior design features changes to the center console and a greater choice of seat fabrics and colors.

New equipment and features on the Cruze include keyless entry and start, rear view camera, Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system (see below) and start-stop functionality depending on trim and engine choice.
