Toyota sells the Prius C as the Prius Hybrid in other parts of the world.
But here in America, the Prius nameplate adds extra cache. Or so they say.

2015 VW Golf TDI MPG Highway Road Test
MPGomatic.com takes a new 2015 Volkswagen Golf TDI for a highway MPG road
The 2015 Golf TDI uses a brand new 2.0L turbo diesel engine that is rated at 150 horsepower. The official EPA
fuel economy estimates are 30 city / 45 highway MPG. The EPA has been
historically conservative when rating diesel engines. With a wee bit of
skill and restraint, you can leave those numbers in the dust ... =)
This VW Golf TDI is equipped with the six-speed DSG automatic transmission.

Reviewed: 2013 VW Beetle TDI, Having Your Cake And Eating Too
A little over a year ago we had the VW Beetle in for a week of testing, it
was the 2.5L 5 cylinder with an automatic. We never published a review on
it, because we flat out didn't like it, though it was for personal reasons
more than anything else. It felt like a pure nostalgia play, and it wasn't
enjoyable to drive.
When our VW rep called and asked if we wanted to try the Beetle with the
TDI Clean Diesel, we said, "sure, why not". We wondered if Volkswagen's
terrific TDI engine could be a saving grace. Turns out it absolutely
transformed the car!
This TDI Beetle with a manual was not only a hoot to drive, it returned
47-48mpg on the highway at 80mph! Sit back and have a look as

The drive is pleasant. The car is still a head turner. During the trip, a

- Fuel economy.
- functional dashboard

The new VW Beetle is perfect for those seeking a retro cool soft top whilst
still enjoying a certain degree of practicality and everyday comfort. The
Coupe was introduced in 2012, with the cabriolet joining the range in 2013.
There's plenty of different specs to suit all tastes and budgets, but
thankfully this one that we are in today has head turning looks for the
right reasons and has managed to impress us at CarBuyer.
And that's because it really does look the part with its non threatening
smiley face and distinctive bulbous wheel arches. The small spoiler on the
rear plays up to its cheeky and playful side, too.
But first and foremost we are interested in its practical side. Despite not
having a huge amount of space -- which is to be expected from a car like
this -- the folding roof doesn't affect bootspace in any way thanks to the
fact it folds on the outside of the boot. Thanks to this, you will always
get this much room [point], no matter where the roof is.
And although quite cramped, these seats are brilliant for occasional use --
as opposed to having none at all.
The first thing I noticed when I got in this car was the combination of
tones, there's some tasteful shiny painted, colour coded, trim here, soft
touch materials, which enhance the overall quality and the retro theme we
saw on the outside is very much present in here too. There are six
equipment levels available however the mid-level Design provides everything
you really need including air-conditioning and DAB radio, while the options
list includes a touchscreen sat-nav and a upgraded Fender sound system. The
50s, 60s and 70s versions are a bit more expensive, but if you want retro
flair, those are the cars for you. Anyway, enough tech, let's get this roof
It can be operated of speeds up to 31mph so you can put the roof up and
down as much as the weather fluctuates on your journey.
Bringing me on to my next point, it isn't noticeably noisier to travel in
than the coupe thanks to the multi layered fabric hood that provides plenty
of sound insulation.
Bringing me on to my next point, there is hardly any wind buffeting with
the roof down, as long as you have installed the easy-to-fit wind deflector
thus allowing me to talk to you about how economical this car is.
As expected there are a number of different petrol and diesel engines to
choose from. However the most economical is the 1.6 Bluemotion Diesel
returning a claimed 62.8 miles to the gallon and emitting just 118g/km of
CO2. All can be teamed up with a manual or Automatic DSG gearbox, apart
from the one that we're in today - the 1.4 twincharged engine only comes in
manual and that returns 41.5 miles to the gallon and certainly has enough
pace to complement the comfortable ride.
And that does bring me on to the Beetle's downsides. While it drives much
better than the outgoing model, mainly due to the fact that it shares its
platform with the previous generation Golf and is just as much fun as the
Coupe due to extra bracing, it isn't quite as much fun as the practicality
smaller MINI Convertible. The biggest sour grape in the Beetle fruit bowl
though is the price. It's £2,000 more expensive than the MINI, and that's
quite a lot!
Well that pretty much sums up the new Beetle Convertible, it's an easy to
live with retro inspired cool soft top that turns heads for all the right
