TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the 2014 Chevrolet Cruze

2014 Chevrolet Cruze Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2014 It might seem obvious that the primary reason for buying the Cruze Diesel would be fuel economy. But this comes with a caveat. The Cruze Diesel gets outstanding fuel economy in highway driving, with a 46 mpg score in the EPA's test. On a drive from Detroit to Chicago and back the trip computer reported 48.5 mpg on the way there, with an average speed of 70 mph, and 45.8 on the return, when I drove a little more quickly. The Jetta TDI's highway EPA rating is a little lower, 42. But its trip computer average after a short stint on the highway suggests real-world highway fuel economy at least as good as that of the Chevrolet. The gas-powered Cruze 1.4T with an automatic transmission can't match the diesels, with an EPA highway rating of 38 (39 in Eco form). With a manual it comes closer, 42. In town, the Cruze Diesel doesn't fare so well, with an EPA city rating of 27 compared to the Jetta TDI's 30 and the gas-powered Cruze 1.4T's 26. The trip computer reported suburban averages as high as 41.9 mpg, but this required a very little foot and good luck with traffic lights. Most often the suburban trip computer averages were a little over 30, or even a couple mpg below. Somewhat disappointing. It should be noted that diesel tends to cost considerably more than regular gas. see full Chevrolet Cruze review
