As long as its the same cranking amps, that battery should work fine. If paying out of pocket for the battery though I would not buy anything other than an AGM battery.
That May be true in most cases, I wonder if the variable alternator in the cruze has some effect? It also at times is charging at a higher rate than a normal alternator(seem mine at 15V+ on more than one occasion).Talking about charging curves in different types of batteries is really only something you need to worry about with batteries used in an industrial environment. As far as in your car, it really won't make any difference.
