2010 – 2013 TDI buyer’s guide with mpg, invoice price, price, and FAQ

Introduction to the Audi A3 TDI

The A3 TDI sportback aka. 4 door is the first light Audi TDI to be in North America. The Audi Q7 TDI is available but it’s a large SUV and a V6 TDI engine. The Jetta, Golf, and A3 TDI share the same 2.0L 4 turbocharged diesel engine 140 hp and 235 lb-ft torque (about and 320 Nm metric).

So why buy an A3 TDI instead of a Golf TDI? world reviews suggest the Audi A3 TDI mpg should get about mpg average mixed driving, the as a VW Jetta or VW Golf with the engine/transmission. What gives the A3 TDI a $29,950 ($30,250 for 2011) MSRP price vs. $22,000 for a VW Golf TDI?

There are plenty of differences the badge!

VW/Audi is trying to diesel as a choice that economy and power through advertisements and engine choices for American TDI. The Audi A3 TDI is an of that. Dedicated fuel cars like the first Honda Insight or the Toyota are designed around maximum economy, not handling or driving They’re built on their own with their own sheetmetal for fuel economy.

VW/Audi diesel cars are on bodies shared with gasoline engine models and some potential fuel but also share the good and road feel. German are designed to be stable on the Autobahn and reflected in reviews of VW/Audi My main complaint is that uses the more powerful TDI in the US instead of the less powerful but economical TDI engines available in like the 1.6L TDI.
