2014 Chevrolet Cruze

The big news for 2014 Cruze models is the availability of a turbodiesel engine. This is the powerplant of choice in about 40 percent of European Cruze models because of its fuel economy (40-plus mpg) and power output. Plus, we named it to our list of the 10 Best Sedans Under $25,000 for 2014.

About Chevrolet Cruze

Just a few short years ago, the compact-sedan segment was dominated by foreign automakers. Fast-forward to today, though, and we see extremely respectable models coming from the domestics. Among them is the Chevrolet Cruze, which burst onto the scene a couple of years ago with good looks, smart features, lofty fuel economy and a comfortable ride. The Cruze doesn't feel like an economy car, and its sales have proven that a quality compact from an American automaker can connect with buyers. The Cruze isn't the sportiest sedan in the segment – which includes the Honda Civic, Ford Focus, Hyundai Elantra and Toyota Corolla – but it offers impressive comfort and fuel economy. That latter characteristic gets a further lift in 2014 with the introduction of a turbodiesel model.

"Because of the gas mileage and the fact that I had an SUV, I decided to purchase this small car for my 50-mile (round trip) commute every day. It definitely serves it's purpose! I love it. Great gas mileage, great features, easy and simple design. The trunk is spacious, and it is such a smooth and easily operable drive. I get a lot of compliments too because although it isn't a high dollar or really fancy car, many people think it's rather sporty and modern. I only rated a 7/10 on the comfort"

"I drove every "hot" mid-range car on the market from Altima and Accord to Volkswagen and Volvo - and this car won hands down! It's stylish, attractive, comes with a turbo 4 cycl that has more than enough kick, gets GREAT gas mileage, is small enough to park anywhere and yet feels roomy inside and seats four comfortably. Chevy nailed it on this design! I love the interior and textured/upholstered dashboard. The navigation is well positioned for easy viewing, the controls are at my fingertips and there is a LOT of dashboard information that's easy to access. Also, I'm short - 5'2" so "fitting" properly in a car and having great visability isn't easy for me. The Cruze has adjustable options like telescopic wheel and seat belt height. And when I pull my seat way up, I'm not six inches in front of the cup holder on the console!!! Because lets be honest, everyone is NOT the height and arm length of the average man in the USA!!! Thank you Chevy for getting this car right! I love it!!!"
