Jetta TDI Clean Diesel | Wait

We've long been fans of diesel, even when the cars were a bit pokey and smelly, because we value reliability and longevity—they stopped making the classic Mercedes 300D W123 chassis over 20 years ago, but in some countries as many as 75% of those cars are still on the road. So we're all anxiously awaiting the arrival of Volkswagen's new 50-state-legal particle-filtering clean diesel Jetta, which by some reports will offer 44-49 highway MPG while delivering 236 lb-ft of turbocharged torque. Expect to see them smoking (no pun intended) hybrids at green lights this fall.
