2012 Volkswagen Passat TDI Test Drive & Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/volkswagen/passat/2012/ The 2012 Volkswagen Passat TDI has been completely redesigned for the new model year. The Passat TDI is powered by a clean diesel engine that gets incredible fuel economy without sacrificing performance, it's a win win! Volkswagen is the only non-luxury German car sold in America and now Volkswagen has opened a manufacturing plant in Chattanooga Tennessee where the Passat is being made. So you can rest better knowing your new Passat was made in the U.S.A. The 2012 Volkswagen Passat TDI starts at $22,995 with the Premium Edition TDI going for $32,195.
The engine which is the most important part of the Passat TDI is a turbocharged and direct injected diesel four cylinder that displaces 2.0 liters. Power output is 140 horsepower and an incredible 236 lb-ft. of torque. You can choose between a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed DSG automatic transmission with Tiptronic and Sport mode. The manual transmission model gets an estimated 31 MPG in the city and 43 MPG on the highway, while the DSG version gets 30 MPG in the city and 40 MPG on the highway.
On the inside, the Passat TDI benefits from one of the most spacious interiors in the mid-size sedan segment. In fact the rear passengers are treated to three feet of legroom which make the Passat best in class. German car manufacturers are known for producing high end luxury vehicles. Volkswagen also owns Audi and Bentley among others so know that some of the technologies and luxury features found on those automobiles have made their way down to the Volkswagen line. When you step up to the higher trim levels you are rewarded with better materials and trim pieces. Heated seats and a great Fender 400 watt stereo system are available as options.
Technology wise the 2012 Volkswagen Passat TDI has a bunch of great interior features as well as advanced safety systems. Bluetooth technology allows the drive to make phone calls hands-free. There are controls on the steering wheel that control the stereo as well as the Bluetooth. Finally rounding out the interior technology is an advanced touch screen navigation system that is available as an option.
The Volkswagen Passat was named to the IIHS List of Top Safety Picks for 2012. Beside a sophisticated airbag system, the Passat has a crash-optimized front end which helps to absorb the forces involved in an accident. Electronic Stability Control works to keep the car on the road and the driver in control.
The 2012 Volkswagen Passat is one of the many vehicles in the mid-size sedan segment. But the Passat manages to get wonderful fuel economy while providing a safe and comfortable ride at an affordable price.

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.
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.
