VW wants to "dominate" the US market, using its against-the-odds current strong sales and profits (relatively) to go counter-cyclical and triple US sales. An American-made mid-size sedan is at the center of those plans.
For years, enthusiasts have asked VW to bring the fast, frugal turbo diesel Golf to the states. The 2010 VW Golf TDI doesn't give us exactly what we want, it gives us that and a whole lot more.
For years we've bemoaned the lack of a diesel option in the Golf range. No more. Not only is the 2010 VW Golf TDI coming to America, it'll be available with a manual, lowered sport suspension and 42 MPG highway!
