2012 Chevrolet Cruze LTZ 4dr Sedan (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
Edmunds did not have choice of 1LT with 6-speed auto, but that is what I own with RS package.
The car delivers great value and performs way better than others in the class.
Good ride, great power, great gas mileage, and good looks.
Average 28 mpg in local commute with 38-42 on the highway with 87 octane.
Suggest using mid-grade or premium for highway driving as the turbo will perform better with higher octane.
I have had no problems at 7000 miles in 6 months.
The complaints about the sleeping shifting are due to the gas saving transmission linkage allowing the car to coast increasing fuel economy, all cars will be going with this technology.
Fuel economy, turbo charger, good balance of tires versus torq.
Visibility for driver.
Engine delivers V6 performance with V4 economy.
Taller arm rest in center console.
Larger controls on steering wheel. Cup holders in rear on doors. More cushion in seat.
