Holden, General Motors' Australian brand will make a new hatchback variant based on the Cruze sedan. Since THE Cruze is a global car, any number of its variations can always be offered like the station wagon variant planned for European customers.

The hatchback developed at Holden will be manufactured at the company's plant in Elizabeth plant.

Holden will take complete control over of the design and engineering of the new variant and the finished product is expected to roll out around the third quarter of 2010 which is expected to be more of a high-end model

It was said that the Cruze will take the spot of the Opel Astra which is just too expensive to import now days, thanks to a horrible exchange rate making profit almost impossible.

The Cruze hatch could fly into the U.K market with a Vauxhall tag.

The car could operate using powerplants like the 1.4-liter turbocharged engine from the 2010 Opel Astra, while the naturally ventilated 1.8-liter of the Chevrolet Cruze could serve on the base model.
