2010 Volkswagen Jetta.

The fuel-sipping 2010 Jetta TDI® model once again features the critically acclaimed 2.0-liter clean diesel TDI engine – the same engine that powered a Jetta to a Guinness World Record for Lowest Fuel Consumption, and has placed clean diesel, the most efficient alternative fuel readily available in all 50 states, in the spotlight.

In TDI trim, the Jetta sedan and SportWagen can achieve 30 mpg in the city and 42 mpg on the highway (EPA estimates when equipped with DSG® automatic transmission). Adding even more credibility, the Jetta TDI which starts at $22,660, achieved even greater fuel economy returns when tested in real world conditions by third-party certifier, AMCI: A staggering 38 mpg for city driving and 44 mpg for highway travel.

Beyond cutting back on costs at the fuel pump, the Jetta TDI sedan is also eligible for a $1,300 Federal Income Tax Credit through their qualification for the Advanced Lean Burn Technology Motor Vehicle Federal Income Tax Credit.

Engine and Transmission.
Those who choose to outfit the 2010 Jetta sedan with the 2.0L four-cylinder clean diesel TDI engine are rewarded with a thoroughly advanced workhorse that is dynamic enough for treks through the city, as well as long highway stints. The 2.0L employs an electronically-controlled turbocharger and common rail direct fuel injection to ensure smooth power delivery and a noticeable reduction in tailpipe emissions. Featuring 140 horsepower at 4,000 rpm and an impressive 236 lbs.-ft. of torque available between 1,750 and 2,500 rpm, the 2.0L is the most efficient option for drivers that also have a penchant for performance.

To connect the driver with the clean diesel TDI engine, either a standard six-speed manual transmission, or optional DSG six-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic® control, can be selected. Volkswagen’s DSG dualclutch transmission not only helps deliver noteworthy fuel mileage, especially during highway use, but also places racing-inspired technology at drivers’ fingertips. Advanced direct shifting technology guided by a special computer lets the DSG transmission automatically engage and disengage gears without the need for a clutch pedal. As one clutch is engaged for the next gear, the clutch from the previous gear is instantly released, making for quick, lag-free shifts that keep the engine in the sweet spot of its power band. Drivers can choose to have fully-automated operation by placing the gear selector in the “D” or “S” position, or they can enjoy the control of manual shifting by selecting Tiptronic mode. Using Tiptronic, drivers can shift up and down through the gears by tapping the gearshift lever up and down.

Standard on both the Jetta sedan (S, SE, and SEL models) is the economical, yet powerful, 2.5-liter five cylinder engine that delivers 170 horsepower and 177 lbs.-ft. of torque. The 2.5L comes stocked with an aluminum alloy cross flow head containing four valves per cylinder, double overhead camshafts, maintenance-free hydraulic lifters, and Volkswagen’s Motronic® sequential multi-port fuel injection. Power is transferred on to the front wheels via a five-speed manual gearbox, or an available six-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic and sport modes for driver-engaged shifting. The five-cylinder engine takes the Jetta from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 8.5 seconds with the automatic transmission, and in only 8.2 seconds when mated to the manual transmission. Fuel efficiency ratings are an EPA-estimated 30 mpg on the highway and 23 mpg in the city.

Exterior.
For 2010, the Jetta sedan upholds all of the same fresh, German-inspired design cues of the previous model year. The Jetta sedan can be ordered with the racing-inspired Sport Styling Kit, which includes a combination of spoilers and body kits for a lower profile and better aerodynamics.

Interior.
The inside of every 2010 Jetta sedan comes well equipped with a host of standard equipment, including: Air conditioning, cruise control, an AM/FM/CD stereo system with MP3 CD readability, eight speakers and an auxiliary input, an updated instrument cluster, more ergonomic HVAC controls, eight-way adjustable support front seats, a 60/40 split rear seat, a newly-designed three spoke steering wheel with tilt-and-telescope capabilities, and the option of either cloth or V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces.

On the SE, SEL, and TDI sedan models, a collection of updates further enhance the German-inspired experience: A leather-wrapped steering wheel, shift knob, and parking brake handle, a ten-speaker AM/FM/CD premium stereo system with six-disc CD changer, MP3 CD readability, six months of introductory Sirius Satellite Radio service, Bluetooth™ connectivity for hands-free pairing with a mobile phone, and a power sunroof.

The SE, SEL and TDI Jetta sedan can also be upgraded with Volkswagen’s new navigation system that features a 6.5” high resolution touch-screen display, an integrated 30GB hard drive (10GB for navigation, 20GB for audio), WMA / MP3 audio CD playback, DVD playback, an SD memory card slot, an auxiliary input connection, an optional Media Device Interface (MDI) that works with most any USB flash drive and portable media player, and complimentary Sirius Traffic and Sirius Satellite Radio programming for three and six months respectively. The setup can be also outfitted with an optional iPod® cable for total playback support and control via the in-car system. Drivers of the SEL and TDI have primary system control at their fingertips with the multifunction buttons on the steering wheel, which are augmented by visual and audible commands via the center console display, and the instrument cluster’s digital display.

Chassis and Suspension.
All Jetta models are ready to take on the twisting turns and long straights of nearly any road, utilizing a four-wheel independent suspension arrangement with a MacPherson strut package and stabilizer bar up front, and a 4-link setup, complete with coil springs, telescopic shocks and a stabilizer bar, at the rear. The electro-mechanical power steering system includes variable assistance and active return to keep the driver confident, and the Jetta continually stable yet responsive, heading through every turn.

Stopping duties on all Jetta models are handled by a power-assisted fourwheel disc brake system that comes with vented front rotors and solid units out back, and is aided with a standard Anti-lock Braking System (ABS). Helping the Jetta remain one with the pavement are standard 16-inch steel or alloy wheels on S, SE and TDI models, standard 17-inch wheels with SEL models, and optional 17-inch wheels on the TDI models. All of the Jetta’s wheel choices come wrapped in all-season performance tires for year-round driving, and are carefully watched over by the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) that comes standard on all 2010 Jetta models.

Active and Passive Safety.
The 2010 Jetta sedan includes Volkswagen’s Prevent and Preserve Safety System. On the inside, the Jetta comes standard with front, thorax, and side curtain airbags for both the driver and front passenger, as well as side curtain airbags for rear passengers. At the wheels and under the hood, all Jetta models include an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR), Electronic Differential Lock (EDL), Engine Braking Assist (EBA) and Electronic Stability Program® (ESP®).

Volkswagen’s decision to include ESP standard on the Jetta, and all other 2010 Volkswagen models, comes ahead of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) mandate that by the 2012 model year, all vehicles produced will need to include some form of Electronic Stability Control (ESC). According to NHTSA, having ESC in a vehicle results in 35 percent fewer singlevehicle crashes and 30 percent fewer single-vehicle fatalities in passenger cars. Volkswagen’s ESP compares the driver’s intended course with the vehicle’s actual direction. If a discrepancy is detected, ESP automatically brakes individual front or rear wheels and/or reduces engine power as needed to help maintain directional control.

Warranty.
The 2010 Jetta models all come standard with 24-hour Roadside Assistance for three years or 36,000 miles (whichever occurs first), plus the following new vehicle warranties:

• Five-year / 60,000 mile (whichever occurs first) Powertrain Limited Warranty
• Three-year / 36,000 mile (whichever occurs first) New Vehicle Limited Warranty
• 12-year unlimited distance Limited Warranty against corrosion perforation

The Jetta sedan, like all 2010 model year Volkswagens, are included in the no-charge Carefree Maintenance Program. Under this program, all of the car’s scheduled maintenance, as described in their maintenance booklets, is covered for the length of the New Vehicle Warranty – three years or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first. Additionally, all current Volkswagens, including Jetta models, use synthetic oil, which, when combined with state-of-the-art German engineering, eliminates the need for a 5,000 mile oil change. This ultimately allows for all current Volkswagen owners to driver farther between scheduled oil changes.

Engines.
Jetta S 2.5L, 170 hp, 5 cylinder
Jetta SE 2.5L, 170 hp, 5 cylinder
Jetta SEL 2.5L, 170 hp, 5 cylinder
Jetta TDI 2.0L TDI, 140 hp, 4 cylinder

It's pretty Obvious what the Volkwagen logo is (a V over a W in a blue background, sorounded by a circle). It's origin is rather mundane though. The logo was the result of an office competition to see come up with a logo. The winner of the competition (who won 50 Marks for his troubles) was an engineer named Franz Reimspiess (the same man who perfected the engine for the Beetle in the 1930's).
