The 2018 Cruze comes in two body styles, namely a hatchback and a sedan, and both are available with the diesel engine. If you want to take advantage of the superior fuel economy inherent in this 1.6-liter ECOTEC turbocharged diesel four-cylinder engine, then you still get to pick your body style.

Are there different Cruze diesel trims?

This may be a little confusing at first, but there is only one diesel trim level, and it’s simply called the Diesel. Price wise, the Diesel trim slots in at the top of the trim level lineup with the sedan starting at an MSRP of $24,695 and the hatchback starting at an MSRP of $26,395.

With the Cruze Diesel, Chevy proves that a diesel engine can be surprisingly fuel efficient. This diesel powerplant is not only available in both hatchback and sedan body styles, but it’s also available with both manual and automatic transmissions in both body styles.

For the hatchback body style, the automatic gets 30-city mpg and 45-highway mpg whereas the manual gets 29-city mpg and 48-highway mpg. The sedan performs even better as the automatic gets 31-city mpg and 47-highway mpg and the manual gets 30-city mpg and 52-highway mpg.
