Diesel if your willing to put up with minor but annoying emission issues. LTZ if you want a nice car for a bit cheaper.

How is the car used?

Mostly half hour or less trips.....gasser.

Long haul, hour or more....diesel.

Diesels are not happy when used for short tripping and the operators will get very frustrated with continual sensor problems that are a result of not operating at full temperature.

LTZ is sounding better all the time!
I use it around town, very little driving on the highway. Definitely most of the highway is in half an hour!

I know, I said I was sorry!

Sorry, if you're referring to my "Ditto" comment, it was strictly in reference to Rob's comments about Diesel vs LTZ. I definitely echo those sentiments, driving the diesel around town results in similar fuel efficiency to the gas model so the LTZ would best fit your driving. Cheers!

Don't make the same "misjudgement" I did: My last Cruze(2012) was an Eco. Nice car and I bought because it was an available 6M and wanted a 1.4 vs my 1.8(2011 LS). After buying the Eco, I quickly realized I bought the wrong car for my type of driving.....Just like you:

Now the Eco is gone, I bought a 2014 1LT auto and could not be happier with performance for the type of driving I do(95% city). While the Eco was "OK" it was not happy with most my driving < 55 MPH. Stick with the LTZ.
