VW Jetta TDI: First diesel to be named Green Car of the Year

VW Jetta TDI
The VW Jetta TDI has been named as Green Car of the Year, as the first diesel car ever! Who needs a Prius?

The first diesel ever to take the title “Green Car Of The Year,” Volkswagen’s ’09 Jetta TDI clean diesel was awarded the title at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The VW beat out a pair of hybrids, a clean diesel sport sedan, and a trendy microcar.

Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal and editor of GreenCar.com, claimed that the Volkswagen Jetta TDI “epitomizes what the Green Car of The Year is all about.” Green Car Journal was impressed with the Jetta TDI’s $21,990 base price, abundant low-end torque, suspension dynamics, and exceptionally quiet engine.
