      LED taillights look fantastic! I wonder if they'll end up on the GLI as well...

      Trunk space is compromised from stock Jetta but still plenty of space! Thank god the Jetta typically has a ridiculously large trunk to start with!

      Battery only weighs 79 pounds and Volkswagen has created a recycling plan for the lithium ion battery with its manufacturer.

      Posted a picture from the interior of the SEL Premium Jetta Hybrid on the drive...

      The Jetta is just plain a better car to drive than the Prius or Civic Hybrid...

      Going out to compare Jetta TDI vs Hybrid.

      Is the RNS315 that much cheaper to produce/install over the RNS510?

      Personally, I MUCH prefer the 315! The 510 is bulky and slow.

      The guy named SoCalDubber that sells VWs likes the VW more than the Honda and Toyota.

      On the same loop, I compared TDI to Hybrid (city driving). 34.2 mpg on the diesel... 68.6 on the hybrid!

      Did you see that? The KEY has 170HP. The Jetta Hybrid's key has as much HP as a 1.8T (and more torks than a BR-Z).
      Apostrophes are important.

      Those were actually on a Golf concept before they were on the Optima. I think we linked them to an Italian design studio at one point or another.
