Question: How’s the new Volkswagen Hybrid?

Answer: Regenerative stops the first Jetta just short of great.

As the European sedan available in for less than $20,000, the Jetta is almost in a class of Yes, it gets compared and with compact sedan like Honda Civic and Corolla. but nothing else in the looks, feels and drives a Jetta. And even though the generation was made cheaper and for American tastes, Volkswagen’s remains the compact sedan premium entry.

By the end of the year, is going to make the Jetta in gas-electric hybrid form for the time. We recently spent a few behind the wheel to see how it stacks up King Prius and other models, including the popular Jetta TDI.

Similarities: In price, size and economy, the Jetta Hybrid and Prius are more alike different. Sure, the Prius’ combined fuel economy of 50 mpg is better than the Jetta expected 45 mpg rating, but at 15,000 per year and $4 per gallon the difference out to less than three and $11 per month.

Jetta Hybrid Key It doesn’t just look a refined European sedan, the Hybrid even drives one. It’s more a second quicker to 60 mph than the offers manual control of its dual-clutch automatic transmission, and and handles just like a albeit one with efficiency-enhancing and a few hundred extra pounds. The Hybrid offers the same rear suspension previously for the sporty Jetta GLI.

Toyota Prius Key Advantages: brake feel is a critical of drivability and one of the hardest things to in a hybrid. It’s also the Toyota Prius’ greatest advantages, especially compared the Jetta Hybrid. Other Prius pros include its flexible hatchback design, infotainment array, and higher values thanks in part to its track record of reliability.

Similarities: When compared on an equipment basis, the Jetta is priced at about $6,000 than the “regular” Jetta the 2.5-liter 5-cylinder engine, and the TDI is about $2,000 more the 5-cylinder. Believe it or not, at 15,000 miles per year and $4 per the total cost difference all three can shrink to within a few dollars over a complete ownership cycle.

Jetta Key Advantages: With a Jetta you’ll burn 40 percent fuel than Jetta 2.5 and 25 percent less fuel Jetta TDI owners. You’ll own a hybrid, a fact you can use to make new and impress others.

Jetta TDI Key The Jetta TDI burns 25 percent fuel than the Jetta Without a regenerative braking or the added weight of a big battery in the the Jetta TDI also offers brake feel and better than the Jetta Hybrid. a diesel owner also has perks, but amongst a smaller, crowd.

Jetta 2.5 Key Advantages: Unlike the TDI, the Jetta 2.5 runs on the available at virtually every gas in the country (diesel is available at not half the locations). Unlike the Hybrid, braking feel in the 2.5 is linear and familiar. But for its ordinary economy, the Jetta 2.5 is the least of the three.

If you like the idea of a sedan that starts at $26,000 and returns 45 mpg, going to like the Jetta The gas engine, electric motor and dual-clutch transmission work together in delivering smooth, acceleration. And even if the regenerative system isn’t Prius-like in it’s not a deal-breaker for buyers who both driving fun and world-class economy. With the Jetta you get to have your cake and eat it too as long as you’re willing to a small compromise or two.
