Chevrolet Cruze TDI. It is much more expensive than the VW Jetta TDIs but with Dieselgate revealing why, it is possible that the cruze could be the cheapest TDI car in America. No manual option, and it isn’t “as good as” the jetta, but perhaps Chevy could combo the bad publicity against VW with some good marketing and reclaim market share.
Also, this is why dieselgate is hitting so hard - CHevrolet was up against a wall to begin with by making this car since VW was always able to make theirs for less thanks to gaming the emissions testing. Some well timed rebates and discounts could put chevy in an oddly successful spot. Let’s see how this unfolds.
