Chevrolet at 2012 Geneva Motor Show


Chevrolet’s plans for the Europe’s biggest auto show is all Cruze-centeric. It’s the all-new Cruze station wagon we’re talking about.

The station wagon complements the existing Cruze line-up and has a natural appeal to families and people who want a compact car with more carrying space to fit an active lifestyle. The Cruze itself is designed to please the Europeans, the wagon version is a further attempt at that. They’ve also made a hatchback version, but it didn’t really have the success of the sedan, which sells like hot cakes.

Besides the Cruze wagon, two youth concept cars – the Code 130R and Tru 140S – make it to European shores for the first time while the future of on-board infotainment will be displayed in the form of Chevrolet MyLink.

Cruze wagon details:

The station wagon complements the existing Cruze line-up and has a natural appeal to families and people who want a compact car with more carrying space to fit an active lifestyle.

A choice of five powertrains will be available for the entire Cruze line-up as of summer 2012. A new 1.4L turbo gasoline engine, a new 1.7L diesel and an improved 2.0L diesel engine will complete the powertrain offer alongside the current 1.6L and 1.8L gasoline engines. All engines are Euro 5-compliant.

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.

Chevrolet MyLink, the brand’s new infotainment system, seamlessly integrates motorists’ personal devices, such as smartphones, and transforms their car into their own docking station.

Chevrolet MyLink includes a seven-inch, high-resolution, full-color touch screen that makes media selection easy to navigate. The system aggregates content from smartphones onto the display via a USB Aux-in or Bluetooth.

It adds stereo audio streaming and wireless control of smartphones, building on the voice-activated Bluetooth hands-free calling capability already offered in several Chevrolet models today. The technology will be available with the Cruze and Aveo in summer 2012.
