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.

Volkswagen TDI's Cold Start, Or Not
After 4 days of sitting and a few nights of -25 I thought we would see if

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

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.
