2008 Volkswagen ‘clean diesel’ preview

Posted By on June 20, 2007

Popular Mechanics previewed the Volkswagen TDI ‘clean diesel’ which should begin appearing in 2008. VW has been without a diesel this year and will not have one as they begin to introduce 2008 models this fall. Thankfully for those laying in wait, the Jetta sedan and Jetta Sportwagen TDI should be worth the wait.

    I will seriously look into buying the 2008 Jetta TDI


    I WANT A GOLF TDI!!! (Oh, ok sorry, A RABBIT TDI) I Do NOT want another Jetta, & the SportWagon looks like an old lady’s car compared to the body style on the original Jetta Wagon. I don’t like their newly designed sloped back on the new Wagon.

  • The Rabbit is a great car and the 2.5 gasser is fairly priced. Excellent value IMHO … wouldn’t mind a 4 door. We have a 2007 GTI and its a fun car to toss around the roads although a bit to rigid for my aging bones. The TDI in this this model should be great.

    I differ in opinion on the Sportwagen … at least without seeing or driving … but am anxious to test a TDI version in the spring of 2008. To each their own.
