2011 Volkswagen Jetta TDI: Visiting the Cousins

June 06, 2011

There's a Porsche in my family that needed a new air-filter housing, so I took the Jetta along to the local dealership on Saturday, figuring it could spend a few minutes rubbing shoulders with its German kin while we worked on the service order.

It's hard to beat the Porsche 911 for sheer style. (Although I can't say that for the Cayenne. Yech.) But I think our lipstick-red Jetta has a je ne sais quoi all its own. Is it the practicality? The fuel economy? The radically lower price tag? What do you think?
