5. Jetta SportWagen TDI– 34 Volkswagen Jetta TDI – 34
Tying the diesel Golf in terms of fuel consumption, the diesel Jetta SportWagen and Jetta also offer a combined 34 mpg. The key difference here is styling.
If stubby hatchbacks aren’t your thing — and for many in North America they aren’t — the diesel Jetta is worth considering. Of course, there’s also the Jetta SportWagen. Once again, it offers the same combined consumption as its sedan sibling, but with more practical cargo space.
