New diesel engine boosts Chevrolet Cruze
Thursday 24 September 2009
Chevrolet's Cruze is now available with a new diesel engine that produces 125 horsepower and achieves 51.4 mpg on the official combined cycle fuel consumption test. With CO2 emissions of 145g/km, it qualifies for the 20% band for benefit in kind tax for company car users.
The Cruze, which shares the same basic technical architecture as the new Vauxhall Astra, represents a big advance over its predecessor, the Lacetti, and the new diesel seems sure to broaden its appeal further. At present, the Cruze is only available with a saloon body style popular with North American, Asian and Eastern European driverers but British buyers tend to favour hatchbacks in this bracket; if Chevrolet can crack that, more sales should follow.
