Chevrolet Set to Launch the Cruze Diesel
|   Sunday, June 09, 2013
Chevrolet has just launched the diesel version of its popular Cruze and as the name suggests, the primary difference between the vehicles is the engine. The Cruze was one of the best selling vehicles from Chevrolet and Chevrolet sold the Cruze with a V6 and V8 petrol engine. The Cruze had sufficient power to take the car around corners although it was nothing of the sort that could draw the attention of a performance lover.

The current version of the Cruze featured a 2.
liter turbo diesel engine capable of displacing 151 BHP along with 265 ft lb of torque while the engine is mated to a six speed automatic transmission system. This gives the new Cruze better power than the Jetta TDI, which has been a favorite with the customers for quite some time now.

The Jetta diesel is a popular vehicle and accounts for close to 20 percent of all Jetta sold worldwide. With the Cruze diesel, Chevrolet plans on doing the same. The ride quality of the vehicle is similar to its petrol powered cousin and the level of comfort on this car is unbelievable. When compared to the other competitors in the segment, the Cruze diesel is a very practical car.

Chevrolet is expected to make the Cruze available for sale fall September 2013 and this car could have an estimated fuel efficiency of 46 MPG. The Cruze is a great looker and it suitable for long rides. Passenger comfort is at an all time high while cabin space has also been increased by a huge margin. City driving is quite pleasant and this car makes for an excellent urban vehicle.

The gear ratio is quite low while the manual six speed transmission system makes for an excellent drive in all gears. The Cruze diesel is a great car for urban driving and it feels as though the company has designed this vehicle for both city based driving as well as freeway cruising. The dimensions are quite small as compared to a sedan and this is what makes this car appealing to the buyers.

The Cruze diesel packs in more torque than its petrol counterpart although the performance figures of the petrol is better than the diesel. The Cruze diesel is however a better option as the vehicle is reliable and comfortable. There is a certain level of refinement to this vehicle despite the fact that it is a diesel. The cabin is noise resistant and that separates it from the world. The controls on this vehicle are quite near the driver which helps people drive this vehicle in a better manner.

The quality of the materials used on the Cruze diesel is also superior to its petrol counterpart. There is a certain soft feel to this vehicle and the minor exterior changes are also quite stunning. Chevrolet has worked their way up the ladder with each launch and the Cruze diesel is one of the most practical launches made by the company since a long time.
