Chevrolet introduced the 2017 Cruze Hatchback today as a sporty choice for customers.

The auto brand says the car is more than 200 pounds lighter than the previous-generation model. It has a 1.4L turbo engine and electric power steering. The liftgate opens to offer 18.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat.

The Hatchback will go on sale in the fall of 2016. 

“With 9 percent market growth in small hatchbacks last year, it’s the perfect time to bring the Cruze Hatch to America,” said Alan Batey, president, General Motors North America and Global Chevrolet, in a press release. “As Cruze continues to set the tone for Chevrolet globally, it articulates the brand promise of offering cars with the latest technologies, more features and greater efficiency, performance and safety with fresh, distinctive styling.”
