Modern diesel technology provides engines with fuel-efficiency, low emissions, and sporty performance. Volkswagen is bringing the power of diesel to America with its line-up of diesel vehicles. Let’s take a closer look at some of Volkswagen’s diesel powered vehicles:
The Volkswagen Passat with Diesel technology offers superb gas mileage and outstanding performance. The 2012 VW Passat TDI has a fuel rating of 43 mpg, a figure which would inspire envy in even the driver of a hybrid vehicle. With a range of 795 miles per tank, you will save money and time with fewer trips to the filling pump.
