VW Jetta TDI

The 2009 VW Jetta TDI boasts “20 percent more torque and between 20 and 40 percent more mpg than a comparable gasoline engine — 29 mpg city and 40 mpg highway.” Video after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery.

We can vouch for the added torque. Just pulling into traffic for the first time, we were taken aback, literally and figuratively, as the Jetta TDI leapt forward, the dual-clutch automatic quickly shifting into 2nd to take full advantage of the power band.
