Is the Chevrolet Cruze's engine the same as the Astra's?

The Chevrolet Cruze Diesel now has a 1.7-litre engine: is this the same as used in the Opel Astra?

Hi John,

Yup, and it's best avoided - a truly nasty, rattly old thing with an annoying tendency to stall at junctions. Go for the petrol-powered Chevrolet Cruze and you'll be much happier.
