2015 Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel
33 mpg
Price: Starting at $25,660
European carmakers have offered diesel-powered automobiles in the U.S. for years, but it has been several decades since an American car company has marketed a competitive product. That is until the new Cruze Diesel debuted a few years ago. Running cleaner than some gasoline-powered engines, the Cruze Diesel features a 2.0-liter turbodiesel putting out 151 horsepower and — more importantly — 264 lb-ft of torque. The next step up in size from the Sonic, the Cruze can provide room for a small family while still returning up to 46 mpg on the highway.

  1. You think 550-mile range would be bladder-busting? How about 60 miles for this old lady?
    Those were a nice range of vehicles, price-wise and size-wise. The smallest were the neatest looking.
