Challenging Hybrids

  • April 19, 2011

The all-gasoline-powered Chevy Cruze Eco is competing with hybrids on fuel efficiency, thanks to a light, turbo­charged internal-­combustion engine. With the help of improved vehicle aerodynamics (including a set of lower-front-grille shutters that automatically close to reduce drag at highway speeds), this engine delivers highway gas mileage of 42 miles per gallon—making the car more fuel-efficient than any current-model hybrid tested by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, save the Toyota Prius.
