The 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel offers some of what both diesel fanatics and the average buyer look for in a car — but not enough of either to really impress anyone. Perhaps the greatest attribute of this clean-diesel sedan, according to Cars.com reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder, is its 46 mpg on the highway, making it highly competitive and great for road trips. However, its muted diesel-engine clatter may be too subtle for enthusiasts and annoying for everyone else, and lagging acceleration will have all involved wondering why they bothered paying extra for the diesel model.
