, Automotive Editor -

The Chevrolet Cruze has been a big hit globally for General Motors. The replacement for the Colbalt is a country mile better in every aspect. If you're thinking about a Cruze, you're not alone—Chevrolet's handsomely-styled compact has experienced a sudden surge in popularity. The automaker can probably thank the publicity generated by the arrival of a new diesel model.

What's New for 2014

Major news for 2014 is the addition of a well-equipped turbo-diesel model at the top of the Cruze lineup.

CarsDirect Tip

If your budget allows, go for the Turbo Diesel. Its modern engine delivers high efficiency, durability and torque without the noise and smoke you might remember from diesel engines of the 1970s and 1980s.
