2014 VW Jetta: Hybrid vs. TDI

A is a little device that air into the cylinders of an engine. The of adding more air to the combustion is a bigger ‘boom’. Turbos more power to be created a small engine, and an intercooler ups the even more, by cooling the air it enters the cylinders. Adding two devices to a diesel can make for a torque-y driving experience. But happens when you add them to a Let’s find out…

The Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid the distinction of being America’s hybrid-turbo. Under the hood is an 1.4L direct-injected turbo-4 makes 150-hp. Next to is a 27-hp (20kW) watercooled motor that produces a 114 lb-ft of torque. Combined output is 170-hp / 184 ft-lb. The is available at just 1000 while the full 170-hp 5000 rpm to achieve. Power can feel ‘peak-y’ at times, but plenty of it once the turbo spooled.

A 220v (1.1kW) battery lives in the trunk, behind the seats. Surprisingly, the seatbacks fold to accommodate long And when fully charged, the can provide enough juice to the 2014 Volkswagen Jetta for up to 1 mile at speeds below 37 Select ‘E-Mode’, and your Hybrid will drive at speeds up to 44 mph. When you start the car, or take off a stoplight, the car operates like an EV you really press on the throttle, at point, the gas engine will in to provide more power. In you can give more aggressive inputs, without knocking the car out of mode.

Another unique feature of the VW Jetta Hybrid is the transmission. a 7-speed DSG Tiptronic automatic twin dry clutches. Its unique allows the engine to be completely from the driveline, improving by reducing the parasitic loss of the gas while the car’s in electric For maximum efficiency at higher the computer can also disconnect the motor, allowing it to power the car’s accessories. If you’re down a hill, or coasting to a the engine can be decoupled from the so the car can go into Coasting mode. All of adds up to fuel economy of 42 city / 48 hwy / 45 combined.

Aesthetically, the 2014 Volkswagen Hybrid goes for the aero-look, a smooth front fascia, detailing, and aero-enhanced wheels. The Volkswagen Jetta TDI on the other gets a more aggressive end and better looking wheels. cars get the 4-wheel independent from the sporty Jetta

Aside from the wheels and trunk, the biggest (and obvious) difference between two Jetta’s is under the hood. For the Jetta Diesel gets venerable 2.0 liter intercooled connected to a 6-speed shiftable or a 6-speed manual. Horsepower is a bit than the hybrid at 140, but 236 of torque is considerably more. both cars reach 60 mph in the 8 ½ range, the 2014 Jetta TDI more powerful off-the-line due to the torque.

Fuel economy in the Volkswagen Jetta TDI is officially at 30 city / 42 hwy / 34 combined. But 2013 TDI on the EPA’s website have an average of 37 mpg combined with the and 44 with the manual. Highway mpg can hit the 50’s with frugal proving that diesels can be a lot economical than their suggests. By contrast, 2013 Hybrid owners reported an of just 40 mpg, even it’s EPA rated at 45 combined

So there you have it; two turbo with very different to being green. The 2014 Jetta Hybrid starts at and gets less mpg than while the 2014 Volkswagen TDI starts at $24k and likely more mpg than advertised. is the better value? I guess it on what you are looking for. if you’re a VW fan looking for something a bit – keep an eye on the CrossBlue too.
