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 TDI vs Hybrid, 1 tank to San Francisco Challenge
Matthew Welch, GM of Auburn VW believes in his New Jetta TDI so much that
he's accepted the challenge of pitting his car against the Toyota Prius for
fuel economy supremacy. He and a film crew will fill the tanks of both a
New Volkswagen Jetta TDI and the Toyota Prius in Auburn Washington.
They'll attempt to drive them both to San Francisco without stopping at a
single gas station to fill up, all under the watchful eye of the film crew
documenting everything. Which one will make the whole journey? Will either
of them even make it?

► 2015 Volkswagen Jetta facelift
The Jetta is one of the world's most successful sedans with over 14 million
units sold since 1979. Last year alone, Volkswagen delivered 925,000 units
-- this makes the Jetta the top selling car of the brand and of the entire
Group. The sedan has also been the number 1 selling Volkswagen in America
for decades. Now, at the New York International Auto Show (April 18 to 27),
Volkswagen is presenting the world premiere of the US version of the Jetta
that has been extensively redesigned and re-engineered; it will also be
modified for Europe and arrive in Germany this autumn. Designers created
new front and rear designs (optional new xenon headlights and LED tail
lights), and engineers developed a new sporty and fuel-efficient TDI Clean
Diesel (110 kW / 150 PS; 37 mpg combined). Aerodynamic experts reduced air
drag by 10 percent, and new tires improved rolling resistance. Electronic
experts came up with new assistance systems (Blind Spot Detection, Front
Assist and Rear Traffic Alert), and the body team achieved even better
crash properties (now 5 stars in US-NCAP testing; top results are also
expected in the IIHS Small Overlap test). Last but not least, interior
designers have ensured that the successful model will make an even more
sophisticated and comfortable appearance (new instruments, new steering
wheel, upholstery materials and accents). That is how we have made the best
Jetta ever. The car will arrive at American Volkswagen dealers in
September. In the powertrain area, three gasoline engines (85 kW / 115 PS,
125 kW / 170 PS and a GLI with 155 kW / 210 PS) and a full hybrid version
(system power: 125 kW / 170 PS) will be offered along with the new
generation TDI Clean Diesel with internal designation EA 288. These
versions were also made more fuel-efficient based on improved aerodynamics
and reduced rolling resistance.

How Far Can You Drive On One Tank of Diesel? - Chevy Cruze 2.0TD vs. VW Jetta TDI
We set out to verify these cars' lofty highway-fuel-economy ratings—42
mpg for the Jetta, 46 for the Cruze—by driving from our Ann Arbor
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

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
2012 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/volkswagen/jetta/2012/ The sixth generation
Volkswagen Jetta debuted last year as a 2011 model and with an all new
model came an all new TDI version of the car. The 2012 Volkswagen Jetta turbo Diesel gets 45 MPG on the highway and
30 MPG in the city. With an MSRP of $22,775; the TDI is a great value. This
car looks and feels expensive, yet represents one of the most economical
cars you can drive.
The 2012 Volkswagen Jetta TDI rivals the Toyota Prius Hybrid but has the
fun to drive factor in its corner. The Jetta TDI can be purchased with a
6-speed manual transmission that adds to the driving experience. On the
outside the 2012 Volkswagen Jetta TDI oozes with style. The look is upscale
and very premium and that is no doubt due to the fact that VW also controls
the Audi brand. The Jetta TDI drives better than the other cars in its
segment too. On the inside the seats are comfortable and supportive with
the ergonomics of the interior being spot on also. This is German
engineering in a very affordable and economical sedan. And even thought the
Jetta is a compact sedan, the passengers in the rear are comfortable.
The 2012 Volkswagen Jetta TDI will save you about $450 per year by buying
the TDI version over the regular gasoline version. The base price is more
expensive but if you own the car for more than 4 years that price will be
made up in fuel economy savings; plus the TDI models have better resale
value. The heart and soul of the Jetta TDI is 2.0 liter 4-cylinder turbo diesel engine that produces 140 horsepower and 236 lb-ft. of
torque. It's the high amount of torque that makes for great off the line
The bottom line of the 2012 Volkswagen Jetta TDI is that it is all grown
up, looks more sophisticated, is very stylish, and for the money gives you
fuel economy and driving pleasure unmatched by any car in the segment.
