It’s no secret. I love german cars, I love sports cars, I love manual transmissions, and I’m waiting for the day someone can make a highly efficient car that also doesn’t sacrifice on performance or fun.
Which is why this Jetta TDI makes me so happy.
50 miles per gallon
0-60 in 8 seconds (not super fast, but much better than the Prius’s 10)
Oh, and this car goes vroom vroom with a manual transmission.
And before any Prius owners start complaining about diesel cars being dirty… Both the Jetta TDI and Prius put out the exact same amount of carbon emissions, around 0.6 pounds of CO2 per mile.
Congrats on a great car, VW. I’ll be recommending this to everyone I know shopping for a new car.
