I have only driven 200 miles in the new TDI clean, but I already know I would rather have the leather seat package I had on the '05. The car is my office, and this one is not as comfortable as the '05. I am an outside sales rep, and I drive A LOT. The "clean" is fun to drive, the sound system is better, it has more features in the dash, which I like. So far I have used 1/4 tank of fuel according to the gage, we shall see how that continues to play out. Overall, I really like the "clean". I do have more space to carry my sales bags and samples, and there is more power to carry it all.
increased torque - more room inside and in the trunk - increased mileage - improved sound system.
