Top Family-Friendly Kid-Haulers

It’s always sad to see summer come to an end, but with its end comes the start of a new season.  As families say goodbye to summer road trips and days at the beach, it’s back to school time for many.

With carpooling, after school activities, sports and the like, families will be spending a considerable amount of time in their vehicles.  In fact, an online poll taken by CarGurus.com showed that a third spend more than an hour in their car on any given day. Needless to say, comfort and dependability are important features.

This year, CarGurus.com put together a list with their “10 Best Top Family-Friendly Kid-Haulers” and we are happy to announce that both Honda & GM made the list.

Coming soon: The 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel

The North American market will soon be met with a 2.0L turbo-diesel version of the top selling Chevrolet Cruze. The Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel boasts the cleanest diesel passenger car engine General Motors has ever produced. It is also the first clean diesel car ever produced by a North American manufacturer. The Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel will be priced considerably lower than its biggest competitor, the Volkswagen Jetta TDI Diesel.turbo_diesel_engine

Clean diesels generate about 90 percent less Nitrogen Oxide and particulate emissions compared to the earlier diesels. Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel emissions are below Environment Canada Emissions Standards.

The Cruze’s new 2.0L turbo-diesel engine produced a leading estimated 148 horsepower and estimated 258lb-ft torque with 0-60 performance of 8.6 seconds, beating out the VW Jetta TDI automatic.

“Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel fills an important role in Chevrolet’s diverse four-cylinder lineup, and is primed to win over diesel devotees and compact car buyers with its performance, torque and fuel economy,” said Chris Perry, Chevrolet’s VP of marketing. “We leveraged engineering expertise from around the globe to develop a world-class, low-emissions engine to give U.S. and Canadian customers a car that’s both fun to drive and practical at the pump.”

The Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel comes with a six speed automatic transmission, four-wheel antilock disc brakes, 3.20 final drive ratio, 140-amp alternator, 800 cold-cranking amps battery, 17 inch alloy wheels, ultra-low-rolling resistance all-season tires, Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system and more.

When the 2014 Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel hits the showroom floor, we’ll be the first to let you know!
