Chevrolet has announced the new 2014 Curze Diesel. It will have the best highway fuel economy of any non-hybrid passenger car in the US.

The 2014 Cruze is powered bya 2.0 liter four-cylinder diesel with 150HP (110 kW) and 350Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque or 380Nm (280 lb-ft) with overboost. 0-100 km/h in just 8.6 seconds. The fuel economy is spectacular – 46 mpg Highway, so the owners can travel up to 1,126 km (700 miles) on a single tank of fuel.

With a starting price of $25,695, including an $810 destination charge, the Chevrolet Cruze Diesel is a better value than a similarly equipped VW Jetta TDI automatic. Compared with Jetta, the Cruze Diesel offers standard equipment including the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system, larger 17-inch alloy wheels, leather-appointed seating, a longer five-year 100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty, and a 2-year maintenance plan.
