The new 2013 Chevrolet Cruze Station Wagon has been designed with these needs and customers’ diverse lifestyles in mind. Its particular blend of features make it an ideal family hauler and vehicle for sports excursions or extended holiday trips.
2013 Chevrolet Cruze Station Wagon Interior. The interior features fluid lines and Chevrolet’s signature dual cockpit, with wrap-around front fascia which flow into the driver and passenger door. Cars that come with the brand-new Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system will boast a new seven-inch high resolution touch screen located in the integrated center stack.
Space is abundant in the Chevrolet Cruze station wagon, both for the occupants and the cargo they wish to transport. The carpeted trunk measures 1,024 mm in length in its basic configuration and allows for storage of up to 500 liters up to the window line. When the rear seatbacks (60/40 split) are folded flat, some 1,478 liters of cargo be packed under the roof of the car.
2013 Chevrolet Cruze Station Wagon Exterior. From the B-pillars rearward, the bodywork is all new. The station wagon’s confident posture is emphasized by a “wheels out, body in” stance, a powerful concave shoulder line and a single arch roofline that tapers off toward the D-pillar. The slim roof rails are a standard feature and contribute to the vehicle’s poised looks.
A dual-port grille, with the golden bowtie positioned in the center, instantly communicates the station wagon as a Chevrolet. Among the design changes incorporated into all model year 2013 Cruzes are an angular drawn fascia with horizontal slats which will replace the honeycomb previously used in the grille. An enhanced front bumper with fog lights that are accommodated in newly styled housings give the car a sharper, sportier appearance.
At the rear end, the raked angle of the tailgate consolidates the dynamic profile that is so manifest in the swept frontal section. All model year 2013 Cruzes will sport a fresh five-spoke wheel design. Depending on the trim level, steel or alloy wheels are 16 or 17 inches in size. The station wagon is also offered with stylish black-painted wheels.
2013 Chevrolet Cruze Station Wagon Engines and Transmission. The 1.4L turbocharged gasoline engine delivers a performance comparable to engines of a larger displacement while requiring less fuel and producing a smaller carbon footprint. Matched to a standard six-speed manual transmission, it develops 140 hp (103 kW) and a maximum torque of 200 Nm at 1,850~4,900 rpm while 0-100 km/h acceleration requires 9.5 seconds. On a combined cycle, the 1.4L turbo gasoline engine consumes 5.7 liters/100 km, which corresponds to 134 g of CO2 per km.
The 1.7L diesel engine, equipped with an intercooled turbocharger, standard Start/Stop and electric power steering, cranks out 130 hp (96 kW) that propel the station wagon to 100 km/h in 10.4 seconds, and to a top speed of 200 km/h. This solid performance is matched by impressive peak torque ratings of 300 Nm at 2,000~2,500 rpm.
