Volkswagen is proving that you don’t have to purchase a hybrid in order to drive a green car.
That is the idea behind the German automotive manufacturer’s alternatively fueled 2009 Jetta TDI.
Our car came equipped with a 2.0 Liter turbo diesel power plant making 140 HP and 236 lb-ft of torque and still gets and EPA estimated 40 MPG on the highway when connected to our car’s DSG gearbox.
Starting out at a little over $22,000 the VW Jetta TDI is an affordable alternative to other environmentally friendly vehicles.
Our Reflex Silver Metallic four door medium sized sedan rode on a set of stylish 16 inch alloy wheels and aside from the TDI badge on the trunk, this Jetta looked just like any other Jetta in the VW family.
