Rumors having been circulating that a hatchback variant of the redesigned 2016 Chevrolet Cruze might become available in the United States, and this week those rumors have been confirmed. A hatchback Cruze has been offered overseas for a few years now, but this marks the first time it will be offered on our side of the pond. The 2016 Chevy Cruze will be lighter yet roomier than its predecessor, and the hatchback version is expected to come close to the sedan’s expected 40 mpg highway. Worldwide, no other Chevy model is as popular as the Cruze, with more than 3.5 million sold in 115 countries. U.S. sales have totaled more than 1 million in the 8 years since it debuted, and a hatchback option should make it even more popular. Phillips Chevrolet has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory, including a great selection of current generation Cruzes available with 0% financing for 60 months.
