2009 Volkswagen Jetta Review

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Just before fuel prices dropped precipitously late last year, we took delivery of our first diesel-powered Four Seasons car in ages, a stick-shift 2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI, EPA rated at an impressive 30 mpg in the city, 41 mpg on the highway, and 34 mpg combined. This crushes the fuel economy performance of the base Jetta, which has a 2.5-liter in-line five-cylinder rated at 21/30 mpg, for a 24-mpg combined rating. That 10-mpg advantage comes at a price, however, since the TDI carries a premium of almost $5000 and diesel fuel currently costs more than $.50 more per gallon than regular unleaded. In other words, like most hybrid vehicles, the TDI might not save its owners money versus a more conventional car. But, of course, when you're riding the Fuel Price Roller Coaster, it sure can make you feel good to see that higher fuel-economy number on the trip computer.
