Recently we reported that Hyundai sees diesels as possibly a more cost effective alternative to hybrids, and now it looks like they may be bringing one to the US market as soon as 2009. Hyundai will be offering a new 3.0L V-6 turbo-diesel in the new Veracruz CUV in the Asian and European markets, but it doesn't yet meet Tier II bin 5 requirements. Hyundai is currently working on making the diesel, dubbed the S-Engine, fifty-state legal. You can check out Autoblog's initial driving impressions of the new Veracruz with a gas engine over on our partner site.
