VW Jetta TDi test in June Car&Driver

Great, I thought on seeing the cover of the June issue of C&D, a test of the diesel Jetta. But what a disappointment: how can they expect Americans to warm to diesel engines when they install the engines we had in Europe 6 or 7 years ago? The 1.9 litre 100hp TDi uses out-of-date technology and has barely enough power to move such a big car. Jettas over here get new-generation 2.0 litre 140hp engines and this will be uprated to 170hp by the end of the summer
