Chevrolet Cruze Station Wagon estate

£15,900 - £21,300

Based on the Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer estate, the Chevrolet Cruze Station Wagon estate uses the same platform as well as lots of identical parts and proven engines. The styling is good and the Cruze SW is arguably the most stylish car in the Cruze range, competing on the same level as the Hyundai i30 Tourer estate and the Volkswagen Golf estate. You get a choice of four engines, but we’d recommend going for the 1.7-litre VCDi diesel because it's well priced, efficient and feels responsive on the road. The Cruze SW's dimensions do fall a down bit in terms of space when compared to other estates in the class, but Chevrolet have been generous with its equipment and accessories for the list price, and you won’t really notice the little bit of boot space it lacks next to the VW Golf estate, for example. The Chevrolet Cruze Station Wagon estate comes in three main specifications – entry-level LS, mid-range LT and top-of-the-range LTZ.
