2013 Volkswagen Beetle TDI – Official Photos and Info

Volkswagen’s latest Beetle dropped a few things relative to the New Beetle it replaces, including the word “New,” the height of its roof, and the cutesy demeanor. Now the Beetle line regains something lost a few years back: a fuel-efficient TDI diesel iteration. The 2013 Beetle TDI will debut at the 2012 Chicago auto show.

We’ve covered the 2012 Beetle at length, having tested both the pseudo-GTI Turbo and the five-cylinder 2.5, so here’s the brief recap of the latest Beetle generation: It’s slightly bigger and wears manlier styling. Building on that, the diesel model’s only visual differences are its unique 17-inch wheels, some extra chrome trim, and requisite TDI badges. The TDI gets an extra trio of dash-mounted gauges—one for oil pressure gauge, one for turbo boost, and a stopwatch.

Just a Diesel Beetle

The Beetle TDI utilizes VW’s corporate 2.0-liter turbo-diesel four, which makes the same 140 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque as it does in the Golf, Jetta, and Passat. A choice of either a six-speed manual or DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission sends power to the Beetle’s front wheels. The TDI shares its efficiency-minded electric power steering with the Turbo. (The base Beetle 2.5’s steering rack gets hydraulic assist.) TDI models will use the base model’s torsion-beam suspension setup in the rear; in our experience, it sacrifices a small amount of comfort but little else to the Turbo’s multilink arrangement.
