Guessing no one bought a Cruze Diesel because they thought it was fast (definitely not why I did lol), but just curious for those who have drove a Gen 1 and a Gen 2, which is faster? I know the Gen 1 has more power, but the Gen 2 is lighter and I think the 9 speed auto would help. So maybe actually go Gen 1 vs Gen 2 auto vs Gen 2 manual.

Are you asking about top speed or 0-30, 0-60, 30-60 mph times?

I own gen 1, have driven gen 2. It is a fair question, I think the data may show them to be pretty similiar. The gen 2 auto transmission is smoother. Gen 1 has more power but is a little heavy. Gen 2 lighter and perhaps a bit more refined, smaller engine, but net result from my perspective is comparable.
