2011 Volkswagen Jetta Long-Term Road Test

2011 Volkswagen Jetta TDI: Diesel Quiet

January 20, 2012


Last night I pulled into a parking spot at the grocery store, just as a Chevrolet Equinox parked beside me. The woman in the Equinox let her engine run for a minute while she sorted through her coupons.

I was immediately struck by how quiet the diesel Jetta was compared to the older Chevy. No doubt the Chevy wasn't in as good of shape as it could be, but still, it was another nice reminder just how far diesels have come.
