Of course, as we all know, the size of the vehicle matters in terms of the cost/benefit of diesel vs gasoline. The larger the vehicle the better cost/benefit for the diesel vs the gasoline.

For the American standards a VW Jetta would be considered a relatively small sedan. The newer VW Tiguan is probably where a TDI engine would do well in terms of mass/size (37.6 ft³ of cargo space) ratio to efficiency and performance (torque) and would be a vehicle that the average American would prefer over a sedan (even over a Passat which is larger than the Jetta).
