Chicago Volkswagen dealer offers diesel option in Jetta models

As Cash for Clunkers finishes breathing some life back into an infirmed car industry, the nation’s attention has moved to its next big priority in reforming our vehicles: environmental friendliness. Hybrid cars like the Toyota Prius and the future Chevy Volt are initiating an enormous step in the process; but some venues, like your local Chicago Volkswagen dealer, are getting geared up to showcase a new strategy for keeping the automobile industry cleaner.

Oddly, this “new” strategy is decidedly older than you might think. The new hot word in eco-friendliness is “diesel.”

Visiting their local Gurnee Volkswagen dealers, drivers will want to take note of the German manufacturer’s new strategy for its Jetta TDI. Termed the “hybrid killer,” the new Jetta TDI was named “Greenest Car of the Year” by Green Car Journal.

Diesel fuel has faded from the public eye over the past several years. Diesel became more widely accepted in America around the time of the Opec oil embargo of 1973; the ensuing shortage drove General Motors to consider diesel as a possible alternative fuel. Diesel was to leave the public eye again when a design flaw in GM’s Oldsmobile diesel V8 engines spurred a class-action lawsuit.

Now, with the imminent approach of the new Jetta TDI, the industry is about to be shaken anew. The TDI logs an estimated 41 mpg in highway driving. Chicago VW dealers are already getting geared up to launch this amazing new vehicle.

Starting at $22,270, the Jetta TDI is also affordable. Amenities include a multi-function trip computer and leather-wrapped steering wheel. Propelled by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged clean diesel engine, the vehicle truly brings clean power to the forefront of this automotive revolution. What could you lose by taking a quick trip to your Chicago Volkswagen dealer to take a look for yourself?

As this year’s greenest car, the TDI has achieved fuel certification in all 50 states. Promoting a higher fuel economy and lower carbon emissions has its advantages, and Gurnee Volkswagen drivers will reap the benefits.

The car is stylish and sleek; a luxurious-looking front grill and dual exhaust tips round out the most ornately crafted exterior features. An adjustable folding back seat allows for even greater flexibility in storage room, while “Immobilizer III” technology offers the best in security.

The TDI performs surprisingly well. Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR), Electronic Stabilization Program (ESP), Engine Breaking Assist (EBA) and Hydraulic Brake Assist (HBA) systems are standard or available. Independent drives a better handling experience, and vented four-wheel disc brakes provide the utmost in safety (both of which come standard with all Jetta models). In truth, the TDI really has a little bit of everything and a lot of fuel economy.

So now, with the dawn of newer technology, it makes more sense than ever for drivers to stop by their Chicago VW dealers and preview the car that the industry is talking about: the new Volkswagen Jetta TDI.
