well i have a diesel.. i sell new cruzes ext... man the gen 2 has got a bland interior.. pro of the gen 2.they moved ac fan control higher and off of my knee when it rest on center console. i like the cup holders are better placed then gen 1. i like gen 2 ac vents better since you can blow air more on point vs just your hands like gen 1.the gen 2 steering wheel is marginally better then my LS spark lol. the gen 2 speedometer is cleaner but to large of a gap per 20mph.. takes a second look to see if doing 25 or 35.. i like every 10 mph with hash marks in between. i like the lt has cooled seats vs heated.. not needed in Florida really... im super jealous of the gen 2 lt and up key fobs. easier to use trunk and remote start ... im also wishing the gen 1 had projector lights.. i would have paid an extra 500$ for factory projector HId lights ... any one elses thoughts?
