The article seems wrong. The 2nd gen Cruze has a 1.5L engine, not a 1.4.

Cruze's suck, trust me. They are good for getting beat up in the winter instead of a vehicle you actually care about though.

300hp would make it bearable as a winter beater, it’s so slow I’m afraid to pass people most of the time

I rented a Cruze once to drive back and forth to Florida. Was a loaded LTZ with some kind of little turbo engine. I don’t remember it being terribly slow...

Mine is terribly slow because it’s an eco with crazy long gears, a head wind will force me to down shift on the interstate, but on the other end we get 43mpg average with the car on long trips

They basically did this 10 years ago as a cobalt ss. Probably a nicer interior though.
