2011 Volkswagen Jetta TDI: Seeing Red

November 28, 2011

The Jetta TDI's engine note and power delivery may be coarse, but you can't say the same about its Tornado Red paint job. We've rhapsodized about its richness and depth before, but for me, it's a point that bears repeating; the look of the paint catches my eye every time I walk up to the car and goes a long way toward making the sedan look more expensive than it actually is.

Neutrals like silver and gray are popular with car buyers, probably because they tend to impart a premium look. With the Jetta, it's obvious that red can be just as upscale.
