Appreciating the ★★★★ 2017 Chevrolet Cruze diesel sedan is like figuring out a card trick. While You’re focused on the magician’s fast talk and flashy gestures, the magic happens unnoticed in their other hand.
In the diesel Cruze’s case, the flash is its 137-horsepower 1.6L engine. The hidden legerdemain lies in GM’s new nine-speed automatic transmission.
The combination, along with an unobtrusive auto-stop, leads to a hybrid-like 52 m.p.g. EPA rating in highway driving. The EPA rates the Cruze at 30 m.p.g. in the city and 37 in combined driving.
