    A/T eco vs LT mpg

    I'm thinking about an automatic transmission cruze and deciding between the eco and the LT. It looks like the epa estimate is only 1 mpg more on the eco so I'm not sure it's worth the extra cost. So owners what kind of mpg are you getting out of yours? Is there a difference between the two mpg wise? I think cost is 500-800$.

    This is a good thread to read: Cruze Eco A/T mpg. It'll give you an idea of what Eco A/T's mileage is like.

    The Eco is comparible to the 1LT, since you want an automatic transmission, there is little difference between the two: accessory wise. The Eco wins out in overall looks, ride height, and gas mileage (the aerodynamics DO help). That said, if the spoiler and lowered ride don't impress you, you will not feel bad for going for the 1LT either.

    What extra cost? When I was pricing mine when the ECO wasn't out yet, the 1LT and the ECO were the same dollar for dollar yet the ECO comes with a spoiler (half of the RS package already - fog lamps are only $200 if you want to add them later) and it comes with sweet aluminum wheels standard not to mention the lowered ride height giving it a slightly sportier look.

    The Eco costs the same as the 1LT, yes, but only with the Manual Transmission. He's asking about the Eco A/T (with mandatory Connectivity Package), which costs an extra $1450 to the base price.

    ...funny, but it is NOT optional if it's got mandatory "gotcha's" attached. Gotta wince at GM marketing strategies!
