2012 Chevrolet Cruze Eco Road Test and Review
2012 Chevrolet Cruze Eco: Introduction
It still may be hard for some to believe, but the 2012 Chevrolet Cruze Eco, configured with a six-speed manual transmission, attains the highest EPA number of any gas-only compact on the road. It's true the Chevy's mark of 42 mpg highway just barely beats out the 41 mpg of the Honda Civic HF or the 40 mpg of the Ford Focus SFE or any Hyundai Elantra (all four of these vehicles get the exact same 33 mpg combined), but the Bowtie brand's ability to perform at segment-leading levels in terms of fuel efficiency marks a notable departure from its pre-bankruptcy past. Of course, the same could be said about many aspects of the Cruze.
