Drive. He Said put Volkswagen of America’s Mark on the spot. We asked whether VW offering in the U.S. would feature torque brimming powerplants. Gillies winked and Americans should expect across the entire VW line by the model cycles.

For Now . Americans do with six VW models receiving a engine option. Last we filled the 18.5 gallon of a 2013  Passat TDi   with low-sulfur diesel in Chicago for a 610 trip to its hometown of Chattanooga. Had we the and the inclination, there was enough over to make it Atlanta. At an speed of just under 70 46 miles per gallon made Believers out of us.

Simple Extrapolation . The 2014 Beetle Convertible TDi has but a 14.5 hold. It needs no urea And at 3300 lbs. it’s no than the Passat TDi. Our on the instrument cluster Multi-Function won’t meet  Wayne Clean MPG   stringent standards of fuel levels and sealed doors. Let it be said, that at He Said we rely on the same consumption calculators for all vehicles we resorting to math only we absolutely have to .

Behold the 37 miles per each of diesel fuel . in an equal mix of freeway use of the Beetle Convertible TDi .

Off . In VW-land the much-respected 6-speed Shift Gearbox is normally for the sportiest gasoline -powered Jetta GLI, Golf GTI and CC. Yet 240 of torque from the Beetle TDi’s 2.0L SOHC inline-four diesel is more in any of those gas models.

As to the remainder of our assessment of the Beetle we more-or-less stand by our assessments of Beetle cabrio from this year.

It just so that adding a torquey compression engine to the Beetle some pep to the drop top retro tourer. Starting at $29,595 DSG, the 2014 VW Beetle TDi . is $2800 steeper than a equipped gas 2.5L 5-cylinder

Only that this Bug is to fuel what a Camel is to

For a touring rag-top with To Die For fuel economy and gobs of power, there#039;s the TDi. on the rear of our Candy White Volkswagen Beetle Convertible, TDi = by Rudolf Diesel.

Priced at with navigation, we think the $2600 spent over the inline 5-pot gas engine it a place high-up the compact top Short List.

Does control belong on the left high beam/ turn steering column stalk?
