I'm questioning your objection. The Cruze is a compact. So are some of the cars we're listing. I'll grant you that some are smaller - that's why I brought in the 2010 Civic, which Chevrolet themselves lists as a competitor to the Cruze. How is the Cruze so much heavier than its direct competitors? That's my question.
