Nicely done Eric.

Love the heated steering wheel. True decadence.

Gator will be pleased with the spare tire.

Engines sounds the same same as the 2.0 LUZ.

But why no electrochromatic rearview mirror?

Also the 16" wheels look miserly.

I agree. They look too small for the car. Will be OK at tire-buying time because 17s cost more. I'm already thinking about upgrading to aftermarket 17s. I've never done aftermarket wheels before, but these need help. Black wheels on my Summit White would look sharp.

I don't get a 16 tire on a 2017 car. I also don't get auto stop on a diesel. I look forward to seeing a new Cruze diesel, my biggest hesitation will be this is going to be another low production version of the Cruze.

*fuel* door.

The one thing I can say about the 16" tires is that they ride superbly for a small car. Ride quality on the 2016 LT was better than any model first gen Cruzen I've driven, and better than any small car I've ever driven. It feels like a little Impala out on the road. Obviously not meant for handling, though.

Worth noting, while my phone might pick up the intricacies of engine noise, that little ******* is quiet. hahaha. whisper diesel is not misleading.

It has a very low-pitched drone on the highway. I like it. Almost can't tell it's a diesel from ambient sound, but the low purr is definitely there.

True enough about the ride with the 16s. It's less planted in curves than I'm used to coming from other cars this size, but I spend the majority of my time on the highway, so I'm very pleased with the ride.

It's worth mentioning the what sounds like the turbo whistle from 0-10 MPH.
