Audi A3 2.0 TDI: US launch confirmed for late 2009

Audi A3 2.0 TDI
Great news for all US diesel lovers: Audi has confirmed the US launch of the Audi A3 2.0 TDI for late 2009.

The A3 TDI is indeed coming to America later this year. A pair of A3s were included in the marathon group and achieved mileage figures that regularly topped 50 mpg. The A3 will use the same 140 hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel current motivating the Volkswagen Jetta TDI. Getting 40 mpg or more with the A3 TDI shouldn’t be difficult in normal driving, and adding the powerful and efficient diesel should help the slow-selling A3 get more of a foothold in the US market.
