"Are there any small diesel cars?"
The current compact diesel cars are the Audi A3 TDI and Volkswagen Beetle TDI, Golf TDI and Jetta TDI, all of which use VW's turbocharged direct-injection 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel went on sale in select markets in June and is scheduled to be available nationally in the fall. It uses a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with EPA-estimated 27/46 mpg city/highway, which is the highest highway rating of any non-hybrid passenger car. The combined city/highway rating of 33 mpg, however, is one short of VW's TDI.
