The Chevy Cruze Diesel Gets Better Gas Mileage Than A Prius

Chevrolet has already made an impact in the electric car world with the Chevy Bolt and now we've learned that the 2017 Chevy Cruze Diesel sedan has better highway mileage than the Toyota Prius. Yeah!

It gets a total of 52MPG on the highway with a manual transmission, which is 2 miles per gallon more than the Prius gets on the highway.

The new Cruze has a 1.6-liter turbo diesel that makes 137 horsepower, 240 lb.-ft. of torque and costs $24,670.
