Jetta Takes on Prius: Toyota Prius vs. VW Jetta TDI Diesel

MORE ON HYBRID VS. DIESEL @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/Comparos/articleId=141626 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.

2008 Fuel Economy Comparison: Prius v Jetta v Focus v Smart
http://www.edmunds.com/advice/fueleconomy/articles/126370/article.html New 2009 Fuel Economy Comparison: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySR0flj6QnQ These days there are a lot of small cars pounding their chests and claiming they get the best gas mileage around. Well, we got tired of the talk and decided to settle the score. Right here, right now! We picked three cars from our long-term fleet known for squeezing extra miles out of every gallon of gas: the spunky 2008 Smart Fortwo with a 1.0-liter, three-cylinder engine, the thrifty 2008 Ford Focus SES coupe with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and a 2005 Volkswagen Jetta TDI, with its legendary 1.9-liter "TDI" diesel engine. Then we added a heavily favored gasoline-electric hybrid to the mix: a 2008 Toyota Prius.





Impreza WRX STi for Cops? Subaru Impreza Specialty Cars @ 2009 CAS
MORE CHICAGO AUTO SHOW @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/autoshows/chicago/2009/subarucustomimprez awrxstinews.html Subaru has built a custom 2009 Impreza WRX STI for factory rally team driver Travis Pastrana in celebration of his third Rally America National Championship. You can see the car at the 2009 Chicago Auto Show, with Pastrana himself expected to make an appearance February 14 and 15 to sign autographs. Pastrana's new ride uses a combination of custom-made parts and accessories from both Subaru Performance Tuning and Subaru Tecnica International. To improve handling, Subaru has added an SPT front strut tower brace and SPT lower chassis brace. The stock 305-horsepower STI engine receives a performance Boost from a tuned ECU and custom downpipe. An STI short-throw shifter is connected to the six-speed gearbox. This special 2009 Subaru WRX STI also receives a custom carbon-fiber hood and rear spoiler along with a chin spoiler, mesh grille and Exhaust finishers sold as STI accessories. Biggie-size BF Goodrich G-Force Super Sport A/S 275/35ZR18 tires are wrapped around 18-inch Work Evolution XD-9 wheels finished in custom satin black. PIAA high-intensity discharge headlights, mud flaps and decals complete the rally look. The interior upholstery is done in blue Alcantara trimmed in yellow piping. Custom yellow stitching also adds accents to the steering wheel, shifter boot and brake lever boot. Carbon fiber-patterned trim adorns the dash, doors and console. The STI's very basic stock sound system has been replaced with Kicker speakers, amplifiers and a 10-inch subwoofer. Subaru has also tucked an Xbox 360 underneath the passenger seat and connected it to the Eclipse head unit.





Toyota vs...Toyota? Camry Hybrid takes on the Prius
LEARN MORE ABOUT TOYOTA HYBRIDS: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/Comparos/articleId=127826 Guy walks into a Toyota dealer — sounds like a joke so far, right? Not quite. Guy walks into a Toyota dealer looking for a 2008 Toyota Prius. He's heard about hybrids for awhile now, and the Prius is one he knows by name. He vaguely recalls some celebrity bragging about taking one to the Academy Awards instead of a limo, and then there was that South Park episode, "Smug Alert" a couple of years back. And didn't Al Gore's own son make headlines for getting busted doing 100 mph in his Prius? Something like that. Beyond the hype, Guy's never really given hybrid cars much thought, much less gone looking for one. And even though he can afford a decent-size car or SUV, the price of gasoline has him looking for fuel economy in a serious way. And there on the showroom floor, Guy sees a 2008 Toyota Camry Hybrid for almost the same amount of money as a Prius. Now what?





2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Full Test
CHECK OUT THE NEW DIESEL JETTA: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/FullTests/articleId=132146?tid= edmunds.il.home.photopanel..3.* 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.

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. http://www.autoguide.com/car-comparisons/2012-toyota-prius-vs-2012-volkswag en-jetta-tdi-2076.html 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.

SEMA: Volkswagen Jetta and Passat R GT
Go to MYRIDE.COM for more car videos.Performance tuners are drawn to platforms that capably support increased engine power and that also accept complementary upgrades to such other elements as brakes and suspension. Volkswagens platforms have fulfilled those needs for generations, but never have the worlds of the showroom stock vehicle and the highly modified aftermarket special been as close as they are now. Personalizing a Volkswagen begins as early as the first visit to the dealer, as demonstrated by the 2006 Jetta 2.0T and 2006 Passat 2.0T on display. Each was modified inside and out using Genuine Volkswagen Accessories and shows how the enthusiast, at the time of purchase, can order an even more appealing platform for subsequent upgrades.

( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2013 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid gets 45 MPG combined according to VW, while the current generation of the iconic Toyota Prius gets 50 MPG combined according to the EPA.

But of course fuel efficiency is not the only criteria that new car buyers use to purchase a new car. In this video review we compare the new VW Jetta hybrid to the best selling Prius to see which of the two fuel sipping cars is the best buy.
