How well does the 2013 Volkswagen Jetta TDI perform on the road

2015-04-30

For many drivers, the Jetta nameplate has represented the template for how compact cars should behave and perform in the real world. With almost 15 million sold, it is very easy to see why. The 2013 Volkswagen Jetta is the largest compact four-wheel drive car, measuring 182 inches long and weighting in at 3250 pounds. The 2013 Jetta has sacrificed some of its traits to become less expensive in order to increase American sales. Even with some downgrading, the 2013 Jetta offers much more than some high cost vehicles, dynamically and mechanically. Here are some of the qualities that make the 2013 Jetta a very reasonable priced supreme vehicle.

Forget the alterations and look at the car instead. The 2013 Jetta TDI feels like a sophisticated classy car that is not about the design but performance. The 2013 TDI is not necessarily sporty, but it does have some interesting detailing that give it the right amount of attitude on the road.

The 2013 Jetta also holds a rare place in the U.S market, being only one of two diesel wagons available.  Most importantly, the diesel efficiency is amazing. The car is by far the best fuel-efficient car of 2013.

The 2013 Jetta uses Volkswagen’s tried-and-true turbocharged 2-liter diesel engine, making 148 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. Usually, the diesel engines are very noisy but Volkswagen has done a great job insulating the cabin and makes it a less-noisy vehicle.

Even more to driver’s delight, the 2013 Jetta TDI does not lag when you hit the accelerator, responding immediately with all the available torque. The shifter also moves smoothly through the gate, not as tight as a sports car transmission, but suitable for the more Suburban requirements of the Jetta TDI.

The 2013 Jetta TDI also benefits from better rear suspension engineering and brakes over the base Jetta sedan. That leads to solid and competent handling, and a smooth firm ride.

The 2013 Jetta will really impress you with its drivetrain response and premium car feel, especially considering the mid-to high-20s price point.

The 2013 Volkswagen is a solid, well-built car from every perspective, from the unyielding sound that door makes as it closes, to the grounded, sure-footed grasp it has on curvy country roads, the 2013 Jetta TDI is very secure. It feels like a good place to be.

The Volkswagen continues their traditions of making affordable compact cars that equally perform well off and on-road and you can book your VW vehicles at used Mercedes Benz Houston TX as well.
