TDI means better mileage,
better range.

TDI vehicles use clean diesel fuel and advanced engineering to achieve up to 43 highway miles per gallon with a range of up to 795 highway miles. The 2.0L TDI engine can achieve fuel economy that’s a whopping 50% better than gas engines of the same size. 2

Without sacrificing performance.

With Volkswagen TDI Clean Diesel, you'll get the performance, style, safety, and quality of a turbocharged German vehicle. It's just that you'll get those qualities in a high-mileage vehicle.

With reduced emissions.

These are not the kind of diesel engines that you find spewing sooty exhaust like an old 18-wheeler. Clean diesel vehicles meet some of the strictest standards in the world. Plus, TDI technology has lower CO2 emissions compared to 93% of other vehicles.3
