In Europe, people have known for ages that if you put in the long highway miles every year, turbodiesels are your best companions. Due to the lack of fuel availability in America and misconceptions started by older generation models, that never caught on overseas, but that seems to have changed.
Volkswagen and their partners at Audi saw good sales of TDI Clean Diesels last year. Even better figures will arrive when they switch to the new 150-hp 2.0 TDI next year. Chevrolet also wants a piece of this frugal car market and has also adopted European technology.

The Cruze Diesel recently fell into the hands of Consumer Reports, who also believe this is a highway cruiser. But for some reason, this almost 4.6-meter sedan isn't good enough for American consumer who want to sit in the back. It doesn't exactly look like a tight squeeze in there, not even by a long shot.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
