2009 New York: 2009 Volkswagen Golf TDI brings its 2.0L diesel to the U.S.

Letting go of its “Rabbit” nameplate and returning to U.S. with its Golf badge, the 2009 Volkswagen Golf made its stateside debut today. Volkswagen has confirmed that when the Golf goes on sale in the U.S. later this year, the TDI will be a part of the hatchback’s lineup.

Volkswagen has not confirmed yet which of the 2.0 TDI (108-hp or 138-hp) engines will be offered in the U.S. and quite frankly we could care less. We’d much rather have the Golf GTD with its 170-hp engine and 44 mpg fuel-economy.
