Rumors of a Chevrolet Cruze 3-door hatchback appear to be just that, after an interview with General Motors North American President Mark Reuss surfaced, stating that the Cruze is too late in its North American product cycle for a hatchback.
On the other hand, reports are emerging that Buick may get a hatchback version of the Opel Astra GTC, which could end up being a variant of the Verano (shown above). The new car is expected to bow in 2014, and hopefully the Verano Turbo's 2.0L 4-cylinder making 250 horsepower is offered. Buick will have to plan carefully for this product, as GM's Saturn division has already tried importing a version of the Astra, and was met with an utterly dismal response from consumers.
