2012 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Vs. 2012 Toyota Prius
The Ultimate Commuter Car Shootout.
Fuel economy numbers are often little more than a lie printed on a piece of
paper and stuck to a car's window. That said, they can be terribly
misleading in the hunt for a fuel-efficient commuter car.
Whether you're motivated by ambition to save the environment or the simple
desire to visit the gas pump less often, two hypermiling machines stand out
above the rest, and not just for their impressive fuel economy claims
either, but because unlike nearly every other car on the market, they
exceed the already impressive EPA rated figures. These two cars are the
Volkswagen Jetta TDI and the Toyota Prius.

vehicle that could effectively blend high MPG numbers with a high fun
factor. If your primary driving consist mostly of highway drives, make sure

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.

headquarters to the world's largest truck stop in Walcott, Iowa. After that
409-mile drive, the Jetta was still 200 miles from empty and the Cruze more
than 300, so we turned around and headed for Engineered Diesel in

one of the best choices on the road. See the road trips, interior and
