VW Jetta TDI: Test drive

VW Jetta TDI
Canadian Driver did a test drive with the VW Jetta TDI.
In this time of higher fuel prices and increasing environmental awareness, the V-Dub diesels now appear to be looming larger on the North American consumer's radar screens. And Canadians are leading the charge.

In 2005, the TDI diesel accounted for 49% of total Jetta sales in Canada, while in the US only 15.4% were TDI-powered. Even taking into account the TDI is a 45-state engine only, those figures still represents quite a discrepancy.

After spending a week in a 2006 Jetta TDI (and being a card-carrying pragmatic Canuck) I can fully appreciate the appeal of this competent yet miserly Euro sedan.

The question gets louder: Who needs a hybrid?
