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.
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.
