Except the price is about to go UP! GM just confirmed that the hatchback Cruze models are made in Mexico. If Trump is as good as his word there soon will be a 35% tariff on those cars when shipped into the US.
I've seen the suggestion/hint on GM Inside that any change in Mexico's FTA status will result in the Cruze hatchback being canned and the Astra hatchback imported from Germany instead.
If/when UK Brexit becomes effective and a UK/US trade deal signed, then Astra hatchback could be imported from the UK where it's also made. Unlike US production lines, European lines can build a mixture of LHD/RHD.
