2010 Volkswagen Jetta
2010 Volkswagen Jetta
The 2010 VW Jetta offers a great value and rather high amount of performance in this small sedan. The Jetta has been a popular VW seller for many years and it brings many of the best features from the Golf to a new body style. Starting at only $15,995 the VW Jetta is highly affordable and offers a lot of car for the money. The sport tuned Jetta package from the past has now been dropped, but there is a TDI trim level that brings a surprisingly strong small diesel to the Jetta. The Jetta is a small car, but there is an amazing amount of room both in the cabin and the trunk of the Jetta. This car is surprisingly comfortable and well equipped for long drives.

The sporty design of the Jetta make it very popular with young adults and anybody looking for a very solid 4 door car offering a nice ride at a very nice price. The Jetta offers a nice mileage economy that ranges from 31 – 42 mpg depending on which model and transmission you choose.

Tailgating
As the leaves start to change colors, students head back to school, and the days get cooler, our thoughts naturally turn to tailgating. You can almost smell the exhaust, burning brats, and cheap beer already. Start icing down the cooler, pack the grill, and dig out your favorite university apparel. We'll handle the transportation.

2010 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup Edition Front Three Quarters Top View
If you're in the market for a Jetta TDI sedan and like to drive, this is your car. The firmer GLI suspension, larger brakes, and upgraded antiroll bars go a long way towards making the Jetta sedan exciting to drive. Of course those upgrades do nothing to address the modest horsepower of a TDI engine, but we're especially sensitive to the TDI's horsepower output because we've been driving the superb VW GTI for a few months. Anyone considering a TDI vehicle understands the lack of hp is more than made up for by the car's incredible 41 mpg highway rating and insanely long cruising range.

Driving a TDI Volkswagen is always refreshing. Despite the fact that the suspension is more about comfort than sport and the powertrain is optimized for fuel economy instead of performance, an enthusiast will walk away relatively happy. Complaints about the soft brake pedal and less-than-perfect steering are minor when you consider the cargo capacity and fuel economy benefits of a wagon like this.

Remember that sweet Jetta TDI Cup Street Edition concept shown at last year's SEMA show? Volkswagen announced that it -- minus the gigantic graphics on the sides of the car -- will actually reach production.
