2013 Volkswagen Beetle TDI First Drive Review: What Is It?
The Volkswagen Beetle could very well be the most recognized vehicle on the planet, and with the reintroduction of a diesel version for 2013, the car is adding to its icon status with more fun and better fuel economy. After a complete redesign for the 2012 model year, the 2013 Volkswagen Beetle TDI was unveiled at this year’s Chicago International Auto show with the automaker's torquey and fuel efficient TDI diesel engine under the hood. The 2013 VW Beetle TDI won't be available until later this summer, but we had the chance to spend an afternoon with the new diesel Beetle in the rolling hills of California. Like the Beetle itself, diesel cars have come a long way since the 1960s, and as fuel prices continue to rise, the 2013 Volkswagen Beetle TDI could be in a great position to give buyers the styling and driving satisfaction they desire to go with the even greater satisfaction of saving green... both the environment and the kind that goes in your wallet.
