The North American version of Chevrolet Cruze is to get a diesel variant too. The sedan was launched in the regional market just a few months back and also has its global presence in over 60 countries across the globe featuring both the petrol and diesel options.

Currently, the North American market gets only the petrol version, GM says that the 2013 model will have a diesel twin side by side. The company would start proceedings on the new engine by next year itself.

The Cruze CDX in Australia returns 34 miles to the gallon in combined city and highway driving using six speed automatic similar to the petrol version Cruze Eco which gives 30 mpg combined.

he 2012 Cruze will get a keyless-push button start as an option on mid range LT model and standard on high end LTZ.
