Fuel consumption scores for 2017 Chevy Cruze Diesel
Chevrolet is rededicating itself to producing diesel-powered cars. As of right now, the Chevy Cruze compact sedan looks like it’s going to be the only one with such a power plant. The overall point behind offering a diesel-powered sedan is to give a model like the Cruze a boost in performance while at the same time setting the pace for the rest of the class in fuel consumption scores. By all appearances, that has been achieved. According to estimates from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the 2017 Chevy Cruze Diesel will be able to challenge fuel consumption scores posted by some top hybrid models.
“Chevrolet is dedicated to offering customers a wide range of propulsion options. We know there are customers looking for the right combination of fuel efficiency, driving dynamics, fuel type and more. With the EPA-estimated (4.52 L/100 km) highway Cruze Diesel Sedan, they can get it all,” Steven Majoros, director of Chevrolet Marketing said in press release.
How much fuel does the 2017 Cruze Diesel use?
A vehicle that is able to post fuel consumption scores under 5 L/100 km on the highway is nothing short of impressive. Using the standard six-speed automatic transmission, the 2017 Cruze Diesel can also post a city fuel consumption score of 7.4 L/100 km. Some of the upper trims of the brand new Cruze Diesel will use a newly developed nine-speed transmission. Under the proper conditions, fuel scores of up to 5 L/100 km on the highway are not uncommon. Additionally, city fuel numbers will come in around the 7.6 L/100 km area using the new nine-speed gear changer.
The Chevy Cruze joins the Chevy Malibu as the first two of the automaker’s vehicle to host the nine-speed transmission.
