Congratulations on the AT,
I know its a little to early to be asking about the mileage but do keep updating about it.
My car is showing 16.9/ltr so far.

Is that an automatic version or a Manual, the manual which one of my uncles has gives an average of 14.5 city.

Default Turbo Lag?

Congrats Divesh. How is the turbo lag in your automatic cruze? I read in some Captiva AT reviews that turbo lag is evident till 2000 rpm. So, since the engine and the gear box are the same, I am curious to know if GM has done any tweaks in Cruze AT to reduce the turbo lag.

So far I have only been driving the car in the bumper to bumper traffic of mumbai. Plans to test it engine on highway next weekend.
In the city the turbo lag is not that much evident as the manual version. I haven't driven captiva auto version, so wouldn't be able to compare.

Will be uploading pics and 100Kms report over the weekend.

Just go for it!
It doesn't have paddle shifts, but to make up for it, it has 6 speed automatic. If I am correct then civic has only 4 gears automatic.

I know that everyone has been asking for photographs of the car and so far I have not been able to take good quality pictures of my car. Will post whatever I have on my cellphone.

Will post once more when I have better quality pics.

The car parked in my office lot

Got My Chevy Cruze Automatic-11022010040.jpg

Interestingly the avg is being displayed as 8.9 kmpl. Only driven for 40kms and at the time of delivery it was 8 kmpl. Driven within city limits and AC on throughout.

view of center console. As can be seen, Dhan Te Nan is being played. The sound quality is quite good for stock ICE.

The door SIL plates, the cruze is lighted on all 4 doors. Got it fitted from the dealer itself.
