2013 Vw Beetle TDI coming at the Chicago Auto Show

Article by Christian A., on January 19, 2012

According to the folks from Autoblog, Volkswagen is going to reveal the 2013 Beetle TDI next month at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show. Although the German manufacturer didn’t announce anything we believe that the small bug is going to receive the same 2.0-liter TDI engine found also on the Golf, Jetta or the Passat and capable to deliver 140 hp and 236 pound-feet of torque.

The engine will be offered as standard with the six-speed manual transmission, but as an option a DSG transmission will be offered as an option. On the Volkswagen Passat, the 2.0-liter TDI engine delivers a fuel consumption of 43 mpg, while the Jetta can offer around 50 mpg. Expect the diesel-powered Beetle to deliver the same.

Volkswagen is also planning to unveil a convertible version of the Beetle at the 2012 New York Auto Show. As expected, the Beetle Convertible will also get the diesel powerplant, which means that it will become one of the cleanest on the market.

For those who don’t know, Volkswagen might also introduce a speedster version of the Beetle, inspired by the E-Bugster Concept, which was unveiled last week at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show – read all about it here.
