2018 Chevy Cruze TD 6 speed. Today I drove about 100 miles combined and racked up about 54MPG, according to the dash. I'll let you all know how, when I do the math at the pump.
Side note: I shopped around and had to drive 400 mi to pick it up, but this car with 84 mi on the ODO was less than $19k out the door, from a dealer.

It’s about BLOODY time they offered the Cruze diesel with a manual... is it still the two liter? I wonder if they offer the hatchback with diesel and manual?

Yes, a hatch is available and initially that's what I wanted, but the sedan body is better aerodynamically apparently; it has a higher MPG rating than the hatch. The engine is a 1.6L.
These cars(6 speeds) are somewhat rare, from what I've seen.

Nice find! It's a shame they're so rare, I hear a lot of good things about them.

Nice wheels. You'll have to keep us updated on the car. A lot of us are interested in that one.

Don't get me wrong, there are 6 speeds available, just not like the autos(my impression) and I drove 400 miles to pick it up, because of the killer deal I got. I could have found one locally, but it would have been probably around $24k. I know this, because I bought an auto for my wife about 6 months ago and the list was 28K+, which we whittled down to $24k something.
