2013 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid SEL 4dr Sedan (1.4L 4cyl Turbo gas/electric hybrid 7AM)
As a current TDI owner I've enjoyed great performance and economy.
I was skeptical of the hybrid, but I have been surprised to be getting better than EPA estimates for mpg, usually mid 40s to low 50s.
The car does not need to be driven slow, but you need to maximize the time the car is driving under battery power or sailing.
The power meter helps a lot with this.
Aggressive driving will lower mpg considerably.
The road feel is great and the DSG is very smooth.
The 1.4L TSI is very torquey and the car feels quick.
I have the SEL which is nicely equipped.
I think the hybrids compliment the TDIs nicely.
The hybrid is ideal for those driving around town and on crowded highways.
