First Drive: 2013 Volkswagen Jetta Turbo Hybrid
Introduction: 2013 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid
Volkswagen is intent on taking over the world, one car at a time, and the automaker is well on its way to doing just that if we’re talking about dollars. Year to date, VW has seen its sales rise 37.2 percent compared to the year prior. Of that, 34 percent of sales belong to the Jetta, which means we’re talking about a rather important member of the Volkswagen family.
There are a few flavors of Jetta currently available, yet Volkswagen is looking to diversify the number of ponies in its stable just a bit more. The German automaker is bringing a bit of spunk to the hybrid landscape with the introduction of the Jetta Turbo Hybrid, and we’re happy to see a bit of interesting in a landscape that’s traditionally filled with bland.
Can a hybrid actually be sporty though? It’s time to jump behind the forced-induction, electrically-assisted wheel to find out.
