Chevrolet has confirmed today that it will unveil a new wagon variant of its popular Cruze at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in March.

Along with the confirmation, the automaker released this single image of the upcoming Cruze Wagon, revealing its extended wheelbase and new rear styling.

The latest Cruze bodystyle complements the sedan and hatch versions, which have sold in excess of one million vehicles globally since the line was launched back in 2009.

The exterior design features a tapering single arch roofline and is available with roof racks. Overall length measures in at 15.4 feet and total storage is said to be close to 53 cubic feet once the rear seats are folded.

The engine lineup should mirror that of the sedan and hatch variants, which mean a range of four-cylinder units, naturally-aspirated or turbocharged, displacing between 1.4 and 2.0 liters. These will come in gasoline and diesel flavors and output up to 161 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque.

While the Cruze Wagon will hit European showrooms before the end of the year, there’s no official word of it landing in the U.S. anytime soon. And with Chevrolet choosing not to bring over the Cruze Hatchback, there’s not much chance the wagon will arrive either.

Stay tuned for our full coverage of the 2012 Geneva Motor Show once press days commence on March 6. In the meantime, follow our ongoing coverage via our dedicated show page.

  1. that back end actually looks very nice! But will it mesh with the front?

  2. A Diesel version would be a perfect alternative to the Jetta TDI Sportswagon - GM are fools not to bring it!

  3. meaning they wont !! haha

    its funny how Diesels arent being embraced as readily in the US as they in the rest of the world.

    oh and the Cruze (Australian designed by the way) will be a big seller in all variants

  4. Cruze was designed in South Korea by the local GM branch ( former Daewoo )as a replacement for the Daewoo Lacetti, with minor changes for other markets (in Australia it has a Holden badge). The only Australian Daewoo to my knowledge was Holden Caprice sold in Korea as Daewoo Veritas

  5. the Cruze is also made in Australia as a Holden
