Recommended Posts


This gives me hope that people are looking at cars other than the Prius, and that there is real hope for the Volt when it comes out.

A jury of environmental and automotive experts selected the 2009 Jetta TDI from the field of five finalists that also included the BMW 335d, Ford Fusion Hybrid, Saturn Vue 2 Mode Hybrid, and smart fortwo

The Prius will win next year, the Volt will win the year after that. The Green CotY is just like MT's TotY, the big boys are never new at the same time so the award goes, by default, to whatever is newest and shiniest. That said, the Jetta TDI is an extremely impressive machine and I hope a new generation of diesels bring in a new generation of diesel buyers.

I really hope they change the name back to Golf by then.

I've heard they are already doing so for the Canadian market.

If that's the case, won't it be the Mk VI? I hear it's coming to the U.S. in the fall of 2009; one year after its European debut.
