Get the TDi! This amazing little engine has tons of torque - much faster around town than the base 2.0, plus you get amazing gas mileage. TDi's have more sound insulation, so the ride is actually a good bit quieter. Car feels like an expensive German sedan - great handling, high-end controls and displays, nice seats. A lot of car for the money! Monsoon stereo is fantastic. Auto transmission works great with the TDi.
Tons of power, great MPG. Quiet engine. Luxury feel - great design.
Give U.S. consumers the European TDi option - way more power, still excellent economy.
