WEBSITE Editors recommend the Jetta Hybrid for eco-conscious drivers
BY GERRY MILES
Just in time for Earth Day, editors at Kelley Blue Book named the VW Jetta Hybrid as one of its 10 Best Green Cars for 2013. Each year, editors at KBB.com choose 10 vehicles for “eco-friendly drivers in the market for a new car ”who are looking to “get more miles from each gallon”.
In selecting the Jetta Hybrid, KBB.com editors said: “The first gas-electric Jetta is 1) a fun-to-drive European sedan that 2) returns 45 combined mpg and 3) starts under $26,000. The Jetta Hybrid is a triple threat that lets you go green and have fun at once.”
“The Jetta Hybrid is a hybrid vehicle that doesn’t make consumers compromise—it’s a practical, fuel-efficient daily commuter infused with Volkswagen’s “fun-to-drive” DNA,” said Rainer Michel, Vice President, Product Marketing and Strategy, Volkswagen of America, Inc. “We’re honored that the expert editors at KBB.com have recognized the 2013 Jetta Hybrid as one of their top green cars this year.”
The 2013 Jetta Turbo Hybrid, starting at $24,995, is powered by the only turbocharged engine and DSG® dual-clutch automatic transmission in the segment, and offers world-class audio with the available exclusive Fender® Premium Audio System.
