Chevy Cruze Diesel on the way....

http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2...source=twitter

Now Mazda and Chevy have new "oil burning" offerings in the compact segment, one wonders if Ford will bring the Focus diesel over here? Use a conventional 6 speed manual and I think they would have a winner (in Canada at least, since everyone up here loves the TDI VW/Audi's... )
I miss my old TDI Jetta sometimes, the nice thing about diesel cars is the consintency of the milage returns... city or highway, easy or hard driving, I always got over a 1000km to a tank (or 50-52 mpg), even winter driving was around 48mpg minimum...
