Reviewed 2013 Chevy Cruze Diesel: 45+ MPG Is Easy Like Sunday Morning

 

The auto enthusiast community has been clambering for a small diesel car, from a U.S. manufacturer, for quite some time.  Chevy has answered their call by bringing the 2.0 Turbo Diesel engine from Europe to the U.S. and placed it in the Cruze, and it is set to go head to head with the Volkswagen Jetta.
The Cruze on it's own is a pretty solid car, however, once you put the clean diesel engine in the car, does it make it better, worse, or the same?  Will American's take to a clean diesel car from a U.S. manufacturer that gets 30mpg in the city and almost 50mpg on the highway?
That is what we find out on this episode of Rumblestrip.NET and Ten Minute Test Drive.

Audi's Now Pushing Clean Diesel

We got a press release from Audi this morning with a new commercial they will be running promoting their clean diesel technology in their cars.  As long time readers of this blog and readers of the podcast know, I have, for 15+ years been a big proponent of turbo diesel technology and it's benefits, especially in cost over the much hyped hybrid option.

First VW comes out with an add that's fun and snarky, now Audi, comes out with their message that is pretty straight forward, and makes it's point very directly.  Have a look.
