The 2.0L "Clean TDI" Bluetec
sitting in the engine bay of the
"concept" that bowed at LA last week will be featured in the production car as well. The production
TDI will keep the pollution in check through the use of a NOx catalytic storage converter, particulate filter, and other technology.
Don't expect to see the TDI right away, though. According to
Steve Keyes, the little utility will launch rather soon with a gasoline engine in the Fall '07. The TDI will arrive after that.
Watch (and hear) the TDI-equipped Tiguan in action
