Hybrid cars have been around for nearly 20 years now. While they deliver superb efficiency, hybrids can be expensive and they just don’t drive the way some people like. That is why Chevrolet is working hard to offer its customers a wide range of fuel/propulsion options, including EVs, hybrids, and even diesel.
Recently, the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel Sedan earned the best non-hybrid fuel efficiency rating from the EPA. When equipped with the six-speed manual transmission, it delivers an estimated 52 mpg on the highway. This means, you could cruise up to 702 miles before needing to fill up again.
“We know there are customers looking for the right combination of fuel efficiency, driving dynamics, fuel type and more. With the EPA-estimated 52 mpg highway Cruze Diesel Sedan, they can get it all,” said Steven Majoros, director of Chevrolet Marketing.
With the six-speed manual, buyers can expect an EPA-estimated 30 mpg in the city. And, with its 52-mpg highway rating, that results in an estimated 37 mpg combined. Buyers can also opt for the nine-speed automatic transmission. This gets an EPA-estimated 31 mpg city, 47 mpg highway, and 37 mpg combined.
