Move Over Prius, Here's The New Standard
By Bryan on
Vehicle
2009 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6M)
Review
Watch out, all you denizens in your hybrid econo boxes with 500 pound batteries under the backseat and your smug looks at the stoplight. I've seen the future, and am driving it now. That future is the 2009 Jetta TDI, especially the Sportwagen model. Imagine averaging, in a new, tight, not broken-in engine, 50+ MPG on the highway on cruise control, and in the high 30s in town, with lots of torque, comfortable interior, German engineering, and handling which, while not as good as my Lotus Europa, is a LOT more responsive and tight than a lot of more pedestrian cars. Do yourself a favor, hie yourself down to your VW dealer and drive one for yourself. You will NOT be disappointed.
Favorite Features
Favorites? Seating, instrumentation, build quality (everything lines up, inside and out), responsiveness, pull off the line, that great turbo surge when you tread on the loud pedal, quiet interior, and a nice, not hokey or overdone interior. Rear seats fold FLAT!
Suggested Improvements
Side impact/rub rubber on the doors. I can't really think of anything other than perhaps including the iPod adapter as standard.
