Chevy’s Cruze Diesel Rates 46 MPG Highway

Chevrolet has announced that its Cruze diesel has been rated at 46 mpg highway. This puts the new model ahead of all non-hybrid cars in terms of fuel efficiency. In fact, the overall mpg rating is 33 when combined with the car’s city mileage of 27 mpg. One of the Cruze diesel’s chief competitors is Volkswagen’s Jetta TDI, which comes in slightly better in overall mpg at a combined rating of 34. The Jetta, however, offers a fuel-efficiency profile that some consider more balanced, with a 42 highway and 30 city rating. In any case, Chevy holds the current record for non-hybrid highway mpg.
