I researched the Cruze for several months before purchasing a used 2012 ECO and couldn't be more pleased with my decision. The engine, though small, provides snappy acceleration while delivering 37 mpg in the city and 45 mpg highway in a sporty package.
A word of caution for tall folks...if the driver is over 5'10" forget about legroom for passenger behind driver.
