According to Volkswagen, it is its engine and transmission that makes TDI distinct. “The Beetle TDI uses the company’s 2.0-liter turbocharged, direct-injection Clean Diesel engine that makes 140 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque… and it has fuel economy estimates of 39 mpg on the highway and 29 mpg in the city.”

This model has either a six-speed manual transmission or “VW’s innovative”, dual-clutch DSG six-speed automatic.

Explaining its design, Volkswagen tells that this car breaks free of the design geometry defined by three semi-circles—front fender, rear fender, and domed roof above it. In TDI, the roof profile actually runs distinctly lower.

The Beetle TDI Clean Diesel has three models: TDI; TDI with Sunroof; and TDI with Sunroof, Sound, and Navigation.
