A Look Through the Cruze’s History

The Cruze made its design debut in 2008 at a GM press conference with the objective that buyers would love its fun features and powerful performance, along with a small price tag. After the original 4-door sedan was unveiled in 2008, the 5-door hatchback was introduced at the Paris Motor Show in 2010, followed by the 5-door station wagon at the Geneva Motor Show in 2012.

The Cruze became available to the public with the 2011 model. Production and design of the Cruze has historically been a global effort, with engineering, development, and testing taking place in over a dozen countries worldwide. Both the United States and Australia recognized the Cruze for its excellent safety performance. In the United States, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the Cruze a “Top Safety Pick” for 2011, while the National Highway Safety Administration awarded the Cruze a five-star safety and crash rating.
