Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen Video Review - Kelley Blue Book
FOR PRICING & SPECS ON THIS CAR VISIT:
2009 VW Jetta SportWagen. At first glance, the words sport and wagon dont
seem a likely fit, but toss the Volkswagen name into the mix and suddenly
the idea has new merit. Combining the sporty handling and well-appointed
interior of the Jetta sedan with the versatile cargo hold of a wagon, the
Jetta SportWagen holds strong appeal to families with SUV-sized needs but
an economy-minded budget. Big enough to fit two child seats and still have
plenty of room for cargo, the Jetta SportWagen also excels in the areas of
fuel economy and fun-to-drive attitude. Theres even a clean-diesel model
that can achieve up to 41 miles per gallon in highway driving. For more new

Volkswagen Jetta. The concept of German engineering might seem like a
simple marketing ploy but there is actually something to it. Driving
privileges for Germanys fabled autobahn arent limited to the fastest, most
expensive cars. Relatively inexpensive cars like the Volkswagen Jetta
travel the autobahn, too.
Welcome to our comprehensive Kelley Blue Book review of the Volkswagen
Unsurprisingly, the same engineering philosophy that makes the Volkswagen
Jetta suitable for the autobahn also makes it pretty darn fun to drive.
America car buyers have known this ever since the Jetta was introduced to
the US in 1980. Now in its fifth generation, the Jetta continues to offer
German style and handling at a price accessible to the common man.

Jetta Takes on Prius: Toyota Prius vs. VW Jetta TDI Diesel
MORE ON HYBRID VS. DIESEL @ INSIDELINE.COM:
We were locked in mortal combat, just as adrenaline-addled Leonidas and
hubris-filled Xerxes met at the Battle of Thermopylae, when a relative
handful of highly specialized Spartans held off a seemingly bottomless
torque-pit of Persians for seven excruciating days.
Here we have the 2009 Toyota Prius gasoline-electric hybrid, embodying
up-to-the-minute fuel-sipping methods and machinery intended to take us
immaculately into a spotless future. In the other lane, the newly
introduced 2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI turbodiesel, a rolling relic of tried-and-true
yester-tech locomotion (upon whose sooty breath the Industrial Revolution
itself was built) that has been remastered, reengineered and reintroduced
to be meaner, cleaner and more efficient than ever.
But the battle left us weary — done in by the struggle and tired of each
other like Siamese twins on prom night.

2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
Forget the smoke billowing from 18-wheelers and the stench of a passing
city bus, because diesel technology - as applied to passenger vehicles like
the 2009 Volkswagen jetta TDI - has cleaned up its act

For those alternative-fuel-conscious, carbon-conscientious driving
enthusiasts among us, the big news from Volkswagen is electric, mainly
because it has introduced a car that isn't.
The 2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Clean Diesel (yep, that's its official name)
is the first diesel-powered new car to be certified for sale across the
entire U.S. — including California and the four states that piggyback
their emissions regulations on the Golden State since they all turned up
their tailpipe-sniffing noses at everyone else in 2006.
So it was probably no mere coincidence that Volkswagen chose Santa Monica,
California, as the site for the introduction of the 2009 Volkswagen Jetta
TDI. And as we later tested the Jetta TDI near our Santa Monica office by
driving the Pacific Coast Highway and the canyon roads of Malibu, we were
happy to flaunt this turbodiesel's new
clean-and-green status in the backyard of so many Prius-driving members of
the celebrity set.
