    I've shared my opinion on the hatchback already. But I have nothing against a new Diesel engine. We could use a bit more variety, especially ones with a manual.

    I think it looks cool and a new Diesel engine is great, I am just personally not a hatchback fan but happy Chevy is going to make it.

    I kinda like the looks of the new Hatchback ... but then again, I'm waiting to see what the '17 diesel sedan is going to offer, as well as the hope of the new 1.6 diesel being offered with a manual slushbox! I wanted to buy, I really did, but I'll hold out for a little while longer now to see what happens. I guess if they don't end up offering a manual for the diesel, I might just break down and buy a '16 or '17 Volt, because in Colorado, after tax credits, a loaded Volt ends up being about the same price as a diesel Cruze.

    I normally always go to Detroit auto show in January, might check and see if they have a Cruze hatch at the Chicago auto show coming up? I went to the Indy auto show and after going to Detroit auto show the Indy one was a disappointment.

    The 5 door hatchback and the station wagon are slightly different, mainly the extra window at the back, extra length, and, the extra space.

    Wagon - I love this one


    5-Door Hatchback - I only like this one

    As far as I know, the new Cruze hatchback is not going to be present at the Chicago Auto show. Sorry.

    How does taking a ft off the trunk make it a hatch instead of a wagon?
