I want more diesel cars in the U.S. Every TDI Volkswagen makes is fun to drive and delivers great mileage with the generally more expensive fuel. I think of it as getting a performance car that would require premium gas prices, but you get economy-car mileage. The Cruze doesn't look to deliver much on either the performance or mileage fronts, at least enough to offset the cost. I'm also not sure Chevy has the cool-diesel cachet VW does.
