What if we told you that you could purchase a C-segment vehicle that is capable of 42 miles-per-gallon and priced below $20,000? With the Chevy Cruze Eco, you get just that.
When Chevrolet first started talking about the Cruze Eco, the target was the 40 mpg benchmark – the same highway mpg rating as the smaller Ford Fiesta subcompact. With that barrier broken, the Cruze Eco stands tall as the most fuel efficient non-diesel, non-hybrid sedan on the market. Though in our opinion, GM should have called it the Cruze Aero, because this car is all about improved aerodynamics.
Despite the heart of Cruze Eco beating the exact same amount of horsepower and torque as in the standard Cruze with its 1.4L turbocharged Ecotec engine, it achieves 6 mpg better than its basic counterpart. This is due to the Cruze Eco exterior being designed in such a way that results in 10 percent smoother drag, allowing the vehicle to glide through the air at highways speeds with much less resistance.
