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.
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.

Jetta TDI vs Hybrid, 1 tank to San Francisco Challenge
Matthew Welch, GM of Auburn VW believes in his New Jetta TDI so much that
he's accepted the challenge of pitting his car against the Toyota Prius for
fuel economy supremacy. He and a film crew will fill the tanks of both a
New Volkswagen Jetta TDI and the Toyota Prius in Auburn Washington.
They'll attempt to drive them both to San Francisco without stopping at a
single gas station to fill up, all under the watchful eye of the film crew
documenting everything. Which one will make the whole journey? Will either
of them even make it?
