My main point is transmission I'm diesel agnostic until GM s diesel reliability on the next gen can be determined in a few years
The last year for the 1.8L NA was 2015. When Chevy redesigned the Cruze for 2016 they went turbo only.

Also the 1.8L NA gets poor fuel mileage. Only 26 mpg w/ the Auto and 29 mpg with the manual. The 1.4L Turbo is rated at 34 w/ the auto and 32 w/ the manual.

I've driven many miles in 1.4L Cruze rentals with the 1.4L auto and the auto worked very well. It also has a manual mode that will hold a gear until the driver tells it to shift.
