V6 TDI may or may not be making its official debut this week in LA
. However, pricing information for the diesel SUV
does appear to have leaked out onto the web. If accurate, the Touareg TDI will start at $42,800. That's a $2,500 premium over the existing 3.6L V6 gas engine version. That's a slightly higher premium than the Jetta
TDI which runs $2,000 over the similarly-equipped gas Jetta. Of course being a German vehicle it's very easy to jack up the price well above that entry point with options like the Lux Plus package at $5,400.The new diesel Touareg should be on sale in January. Thanks to Connor for the tip!
