The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Chevy Cruze is comfortable and practical--and now it offers a diesel engine that can return 40 mpg in real-world use. Remember the Neon? The 2014 Dodge Dart brings back some of its personality, but in a decidedly better package.
