Thanks for the Mariner Hybrid write up.  It's good to see they've improved the amenities.  The FEH/MMH are known as some of the best hybrids on the road (folks are getting over 40 mpg with them) and I don't think there is anything on the road that can compare, for function and MPG, except the Jetta TDI wagon - which STILL isn't delivering ("January, maybe...").

I cannot think of any other vehicles in that MPG and capability class?

I just read somewhere than VW is also gifting the States with a Rabbit TDI about a year from now. That will be nice. Yes, not as big as a Jetta wagon but I find the hatchback much better looking.

Glad you enjoyed the Mariner Hybrid review.

There is a GTI TDI, which might be interesting, if a little odd.

I imagine that you'll see the complete VW lineup here with the 2.5 TDI.  Also, some of the Audis, as they do with the turbo 2.0 gasser?  

They have the only T2B5 engine and it fits in the whole lineup, putting them way ahead of everyone else.

The GTI TDI will indeed be interesting but not for me. I like a GTI with horsepower and revs. I think VW should work on improving the mileage on their 2.0T (to a true 30+ mpg on the highway). I love that engine but it's too thirsty.
