The 2015 Volkswagen Jetta TDI, like the rest of the Jetta range, has been refreshed for this model year. This sedan is made in the United States and is a dedicated model for North American drivers. It’s classified as a compact, but is slightly bigger than the competition, which pays off in passenger and trunk space.
Diesel. Germans love it, Americans not so much. Which is slightly befuddling, since a turbocharged diesel engine can provide the kind of easy, elastic power delivery that pairs well with an automatic transmission, yet it will also tackle those long, straight midwest roads without making too much of a dent in the wallet.
And don’t think they’re too noisy. Except for a little road noise (that might be alleviated by different tires) the Jetta TDI’s cabin is generally tranquil. This car is ideal for someone who covers a lot of miles and wants to keep fuel bills low while still enjoying comfort and modern convenience features at an affordable price.
