This! The Cruze is quite heavy for what it is, and nowhere near as fun as a Mini.If I didn't need a reasonably sized commuter car, the Mini Cooper S is an absolute hoot to drive - no comparison at all to the CTD - or any Cruze for that matter.
If you're looking for a "quick" Cruze...the CTD won't impress you with 0-60 times - it excels in passing power situations. In that case, I'd go for the 2LT in a stick shift with a Trifecta tune.
