2012 Chevrolet Cruze Eco 4dr Sedan (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
My previous car is a Volvo C70.
The Eco had a lot to live up to.
I have 16,000 miles with a lifetime average of 44 mpg.
I commute 250 miles (RT) over mostly two lane highways in the frozen North.
The acceleration makes passing easy, the car is beautiful and comfortable.
I went to the test drive expecting to be under awed, but I had to get better gas mileage.
A hybrid was not going to do it with my driving conditions.
The car impressed me at every turn.
It still does.
The six-speed manual transmission.
The turbo 1.4 liter engine.
The huge trunk.
The quiet, comfortable ride.
