GM says the new model, with a base price of $25,695, features the cleanest diesel passenger car engine General Motors has ever produced.
Based on GM testing, the Cruze diesel has demonstrated estimated best-in-segment range and 42 mpg on the highway.
It’s also said is to have “spirited performance” hitting 0-60mph in 8.6 seconds, which is better than the Volkswagen Jetta TDI automatic and competitive with German diesel cars that dominate the U.S. market.
The base 2014 Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel comes with a six-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel antilock disc brakes, 17-inch alloy wheels, ultra-low-rolling resistance all-season tires, rear spoiler, Aero Performance Package and leather-appointed seating.
Other standard features include Chevrolet’s infotainment system MyLink, a two-year maintenance plan, and a five-year 100,000 mile powertrain warranty.
