From Volkswagen, the new Jetta Hybrid Review

by Laly

The German brand Volkswagen, founded in 1955 in America, created a strong car that easily combines power with fuel economy – the all new Jetta Hybrid.
The new model is powered by a turbocharged gasoline engine mated to a zero – emissions electric motor, helping the Jetta Hybrid enable impressive driving performance: an estimated 0-60 mph in less than 9.0 seconds.
The sporty hybrid delivers an estimated combined fuel economy figure of 45 mpg, about 20 percent less fuel than other similarly-powered sedans and in traffic the fuel economy figure gets to about 30 percent.
It’s the world’s first hybrid to use a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, using a 1.4 liter turbocharged gasoline, four-cylinder engine which develops 150 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque delivered from 1400 rpm up to 3500 rpm.
The battery that supplies the energy to the electric motor is a compact 220 volt lithium-ion battery which is integrated behind the rear bench seat, a battery which has its own management system performing safety, diagnostic and monitoring functions.
The multifunctional digital display on the Jetta, offers all the information the driver may need for knowing any relevant drivetrain information. The energy flow diagram and the battery charge state are just a few of the information that this hybrid has to over.

The aerodynamic modifications brought to the Jetta Hybrid include a new fron airdam, integrated rear spoiler and a rear diffuser, 15 inch alloy wheels and a new designed exhaust system, thicker front side windows and acoustically optimized windshield making this car Jetta the quietest car Volkswagen has ever produced in the compact sedan class.
The standard features the new Jetta Hybrid offers are Electronic Stability Control (ESC), six airbags, anti-lock brakes (ABS), Bluetooth technology, SiriusXM satellite radio, a unique body kit and LED tail-lights. The premium features on the other hand, include bi-xenon head-lights and LED Daytime Running Lights, a rear-view camera, the exclusive Fender Premium Audio System and the RNS 315 navigation system.
All in all, I might say this will be a great car but we’ll be seeing this hybrid on the streets no sooner than 2013.
