Chevy Cruze Diesel offers more than VW Jetta Diesel in several key categories

PLAINFIELD, IL--July 19, 2013: Rather than turning to hybrids or electric vehicles to save on gas, many new car shoppers are opting for diesel-powered cars to maximize fuel efficiency. While several automakers offer a diesel-powered option, few rest on the same plane as the 2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel.

As a less volatile fuel option with higher injection pressure and superior fuel management, diesel fuel engines are becoming a more popular option for fuel and eco-conscious drivers. When new car shoppers opt for diesel-powered cars, many look to compare the 2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel and the VW Jetta Diesel.

Although both vehicles are among the most recognized names in the segment, the 2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel wins over Minooka, IL Chevy customers and consumers throughout the country with its superiority in several key categories.

Perhaps the fuel-economy estimates are among the most tell-tale figures. The 2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel offers up to 46 MPG on the highway, exceeding that of the VW Jetta Diesel by four miles per gallon. With the number of fuel-conscious shoppers in this segment, those four MPG make a significant difference in the long-term.

Aside from the fuel-economy, the 2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel features 151-horsepower, 264 lb.-ft. of torque, and a driving range of 717 miles on a full tank — all figures that exceed those of the 2014 VW Jetta Diesel.

While the jump into the diesel sedan segment may go against the grain for many new car shoppers, the 5 year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty provides the reassurance needed to make a confidence-inspired decision.

When the 2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel arrives at Bill Jacobs Plainfield, it will join the 2014 Chevy Impala as the first 2014 sedans at the Illinois dealership.
