So when the cruze eco came out a few years ago they touted the fact of saving weight by shaving down the welds, underbody panels, closing shutters, and those admit tingly nice looking rims on the eco version. But my question goes toward the diesel version. From what I've seen in person looks like they did not carry those advantages over to the diesel version? why not? isn't the point of the diesel to get better MPG as well? I've seen it in person and it has regular rims that don't look to be the lighter ones, I didn't look under it or anything but does it share the underbody panels or the shutter system? or even also share the chassis that has shaved down welds?
I might have missed a review on it or some tech article that goes through this but from what I've seen it seams not.
I just looked and the eco and Diesel share the Aero package which give it the lower damn shutters, the underbody panels, and a front facia air damn. But the eco has "light weight alloy wheels" and the diesel just has "alloy wheels"
