The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Hyundai Elantra already had the bases covered--we'll see if a new engine and new tuning draws it even closer to best in class. The 2014 Chevy Cruze is comfortable and practical--and now it offers a diesel engine that can return 40 mpg in real-world use.
