2011 VW Jetta TDI: Rev Matching
September 27, 2011
Our long-term 2011 VW Jetta TDI just might be the least sporty car in our fleet. I'm being completely serious when I say that I think our Sienna minivan could take it on Glendora Mountain Road.
And yet, the Jetta's DSG transmission is one of the few gearboxes in our fleet that matches revs on downshifts. And it does this very, very well. Go figure.
Basically, VW engineered the Jetta's transmission for enthusiasts, but not the rest of the car.
