If the engine didn't suck so hard I'd buy one. They really need to keep up with the Focus ST.

If they made a performance version it wouldn't be bad. I didn't think I liked hatchbacks until I bought my ST lol

I think the cruze looks way better than that, but I'm not a hatchback fan. Except the 2014 wax but that's my .02

GM stopped caring about the segment with the Cobalt SS.

Even though it's probably a good idea to do it, they won't. GM has a disconnect with reality. They tend to think logically. For example, I remember a specific quote by Wagoner about hybrids. He was asked if GM would do it, and he said no because it doesn't make sense that a person would buy a car that costs more than you'd ever make up the cost in gas savings for. He's exactly right. Financially, it has never made sense to buy a Prius or other hybrid. However, look what happened.

I can't find the quote, but I'm pretty sure he said that somewhere.

Even if they made it somewhere else, if we can't have it we can say what exninja said imo

Used to be that Ford was doing the same thing with the Focus, but now we're FINALLY getting the RS here.

I will wager a lot of doughnuts that in the USA we will never see a performance version of the Cruze hatch.
