Chevrolet Cruze Diesel-hatchback-6 speed manual test drive coming up.
Quite amazingly, one person actually guessed the car I am driving this week.
The diesel version of the Chevrolet Cruze has to be pretty rare. Especially since VW pretty much killed US consumer’s appetite for diesel.
I am also not sure the hatchback version is the best seller either (it should be)
And of course, a 6 speed manual is never a popular choice.
Put all of these together and you have a pretty unique car.
So far I really like it. I drove a sedan version (automatic with the regular Turbo gas engine) a while ago. But this one is really something special.
So far, I have been getting around 30MPG around town. It has plenty of power and is a lot of fun to drive.
As usual, I’ll try to answer questions you might have about the car….

I just bought a pair of regular 1.4T automatic Cruze LTs. I will be interested to hear what you think of the car.
Excellent choice. Please let us know what you think/though of the stick shift action. Thanks!
Cruze model sales breakdown here:
The Lordstown-built Chevrolet Cruze had 9,947 sales in February 2018, down 21 percent from last February’s sales of 12,623, General Motors said Thursday.
The Mexico-built Cruze Hatchback had 2,928 sales for a 6.7 percent year-over-year increase from 2,744 sales made in February 2017.
I'm excited to know what you think about this one. I'd love to test drive one myself!
So far I think it's great. Shift action is super easy and smooth.
That engine is great and actually very quiet.
