2010 VW Jetta SportWagen TDI

Last year, we drove a VW Jetta TDI sedan from NC to Washington DC and back on less one tank of diesel, which up to be around 46 mpg on average. We praised the car not on its exceptional fuel economy, but on its excellent 6-speed manual peppy engine, affordability, and the that you can’t even it’s a diesel-powered engine driving.

Last week, handed us the keys to the face-lifted Jetta TDI – but now it’s the larger model with a 6-speed DSG transmission.

There are a few changes this in the 2010 Jetta TDI; notably the face-lifted front-end I could have done new interior trim design, and a few little details. The most part about the TDI model – the – remains unchanged. It’s a peppy little 2.0-liter four-cylinder clean diesel TDI only 140 horsepower, but a very 236 lb-ft of torque. That’s the peppiness comes in. And for a 3,285 lb wagon, it feels downright at low speeds.

It rained for most of the that we had the car, but fortunately ol’ German engineering came to our It’s like the 2010 TDI didn’t even know it was outside; the car felt solid and at any speed, and didn’t hesitate for a about taking a high-speed on slippery pavement. Plenty of inside with comfortable a high-quality interior, and a nifty sunroof makes the Jetta TDI feel much more than it is. The ride is comfortable with good steering and suspension, and the 30 mpg city, 42 mpg hwy fuel numbers will make any jump for joy.

There were a few things I like about the new Jetta Throttle response while at low is strange and takes some used to. From a stop, is jerky, as if the accelerator pedal is too Push the pedal down a bit and you don’t get any power, but push it a centimeter further and you’re to suffer whiplash. I’m not sure to blame this on; since didn’t happen on the TDI we drove a manual transmission, and I could the effect while using the shift mode on the DSG, I’m it’s a problem with the transmission gearing. My only gripe about the 2010 VW TDI SportWagen is that when to open the rear hatch the key fob, it opened about the time; the other half I

had to open it manually.

Despite my griping about the DSG it’s a smooth transmission While at speeds faster a crawl, shifts are barely Still, I’d opt for the 6-speed manual

The 2010 VW Jetta TDI starts at not including the $1,300 Federal Tax Credit. SportWagen models are a bit starting at $24,310. The Jetta TDI standard with some features including heated and washer nozzles, A/C, keyless entry, leather-wrapped wheel with multifunction a tilt-and-telescoping steering column, eight-way-adjustable front seats, alloy wheels, bluetooth, sound with a six-CD and standard auxiliary jack, and a computer. Plenty of options including the $1,300 panoramic (there goes the tax credit,) a few wheels, a body kit, and all sorts of accessories. The DSG automatic tacks on an extra $1,100.

While diesel fuel is to being more expensive regular gasoline now, the in price (about $0.20/gallon me) isn’t significant enough to not a diesel. Where else can you get a wagon that gets 46 mpg on the feels like a luxury and has this much standard for under $25,000?

Before You Buy

We do a photo shoot for the 2010 VW TDI SportWagen last week. I would just take stock photos off of Volkswagen’s and use them, but they didn’t any good ones, so I’m borrowing from the good folks at #038; Track :
