King of Diesel Cars - 2013 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Test Drive & Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/volkswagen/jetta/2013/?id=32972 The Volkswagen
Jetta resides in the most competitive automotive category in the world: the
compact car segment. Over the years this class has been dominated by the
Japanese brands but Volkswagen has managed to carve out a spot with the
Jetta. This small sedan offers German engineering and design at a very
reasonable price point. Add to the mix a very fuel efficient turbocharged diesel power plant and the Jetta TDI
really starts to distance itself from the rest of the pack. The 2013
Volkswagen Jetta TDI has a base price of $23,055.
Research shows that one point or another in your lifetime you will probably
own a compact sedan. Most often compact cars are bought by young people who
cannot afford a high end car or the empty nester looking for reliable
transportation. There are a lot of choices in this segment. From Japan you
have the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, and the Nissan Sentra. From Korea you
have the Hyundai Elantra, and from here in the U.S. here is the Chevy
Cruze, Dodge Dart, and the Ford Focus. So you can see there are some very
recognizable cars in this segment.
One thing that set the Volkswagen Jetta apart is that it's engineered in
German which translates into a world class European ride that none of the
aforementioned competitors can match. Another thing that sets the Jetta TDI
apart is that Volkswagen is committed to diesel technology. The 2.0 liter
turbocharged diesel 4-cylinder has an
impressive 236 lb-ft. of torque making this one fun to drive fuel efficient
car. Another thing that adds to the fun factor is a 6-speed manual
Volkswagen is part of the VW/Audi group so in turn the car gets a lot of
help in the design department. The 2013 Volkswagen Jetta looks more
sophisticated than any other car in this segment. On the inside, the
interior of the 2013 VW Jetta TDI is very clean, comfortable, and
sophisticated. There is a very German feel to this car. The overall
industrial look makes it appealing to buyers.
Being a German car company, Volkswagen really understands what it means to
drive a car not just own one. Because of that they put a lot of attention
into things like the seats, the steering wheel, and the engine. For about
$23k you get great fuel economy in a wonderfully styled car.

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.
REVIEW - Jetta TDI Sport Wagon - Clean Diesel
Driving review of the 2010 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Sport Wagon. The space of
an SUV, the handling of a sports sedan and 42 mpg on the highway make this
one of the best choices on the road. See the road trips, interior and
