As attention increasingly turns toward improving fuel economy, diesel-powered vehicles have gained in popularity, making The Diesel Driver’s Diesel Car of the Year a more coveted title than ever before.
“The Chevrolet Cruze Diesel, with a market-leading 46 mpg highway (5.11 L/ 100 km) is clearly setting the pace for diesel-powered cars in the United States,” said Jonathan Spira, The Diesel Driver’s editorial director. “The message from our readers is clear. Diesels are back and Chevrolet is in the forefront.”
The automaker also won The Diesel Driver’s Diesel Manufacturer of the Year award.
In choosing the winners, The Diesel Drivers’ readers cast votes, taking fuel economy, harmful emissions, performance, handling, style, comfort, and “the overall package” into consideration.
Of 11,030 votes, the Cruze was chosen by 59.3 percent of readers while the Chevrolet brand won 45 percent of votes submitted for Diesel Manufacturer of the Year.
The 2014 Cruze Diesel is outfitted with an all-new 2.0-liter clean turbo-diesel engine, which carries over into the 2015 model that was revealed earlier this month at the New York International Auto Show.
