DRIVE Volkswagen Jetta TDI
You don't have to buy a hybrid to get good fuel economy. For enthusiasts
who want to tread lighter, VW offers up the Jetta TDI. Like all modern
diesel engines it's clean, quiet and efficient. Tom Voelk takes a look at
this different way to go green.
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 Full Test
CHECK OUT THE NEW DIESEL JETTA:
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.

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.

SEMA: Volkswagen Jetta and Passat R GT
Go to MYRIDE.COM for more car videos.Performance tuners are drawn to
platforms that capably support increased engine power and that also accept
complementary upgrades to such other elements as brakes and suspension.
Volkswagens platforms have fulfilled those needs for generations, but never
have the worlds of the showroom stock vehicle and the highly modified
aftermarket special been as close as they are now. Personalizing a
Volkswagen begins as early as the first visit to the dealer, as
demonstrated by the 2006 Jetta 2.0T and 2006 Passat 2.0T on display. Each
was modified inside and out using Genuine Volkswagen Accessories and shows
how the enthusiast, at the time of purchase, can order an even more
appealing platform for subsequent upgrades.
