Audi A3 2.0 TDI coming to USA
Audi is considering bringing a diesel version of the A3 to the US. The 2.0 TDI will produces 140-hp and 236 lb-ft of torque. In the Jetta TDI the engine provides and estimated EPA fuel economy of 29 MPG city and 40 MPG highway. The engine will be mated to a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed S-tronic.
Volkswagen recently reported that because of its fuel economy, the 2.0 TDI offerings are eligible for a $1,300 Federal Income Tax Credit. Because this is the same engine in the Audi, it would be a safe assumption that the credit would also extend to the A3.
