2013 VW Beetle Diesel

The diesel believers at Volkswagen priced and detailed VW’s sixth TDI model for the USA, the diesel Beetle.

The TDI version of the coupe will start at $24,065 with shipping and range past $28K when it goes on sale in August as a 2013 model.

The payback will be that the 2.0-liter, direct-injection turbo diesel is to be rated 32 mpg in city driving, 41 on the highway with the 6-speed stick. The clean diesel puts out 140-horses and a healthy 236 lbs.-ft. of torque and is also available with VW’s DSG dual-clutch, six-speed automatic.

The diesel is the third powertrain choice for the Beetle: The base engine is the venerable VW 2.5-liter five-cylinder and the performance option is the 2.0-liter gasoline turbo.

The diesel is not just one model; it will be offered in three trims. All have Teutonic “leatherette” (i.e. the vinyl German makers don’t call vinyl — and they do a good vinyl). All also have steering wheel audio controls, Bluetooth, keyless entry, satellite radio and an iPod interface.
