As a brand that has been building their image as a manufacturer of premium diesel engines, it comes as no surprise that Audi is reportedly considering bringing the A3 2.0 TDI to the US market. The A3's 2.0-liter diesel engine makes 140 HP and 236 lb-ft of torque, and is good for an average of 29 MPG in the city and 40 MPG on the highway. Though there's also a 170 HP version, and we're sure there's plenty more power that can be squeezed out of the little oilburner with some aftermarket tuning. Sure, you could just get a VW Jetta TDI with the same powerplant, but we're sure there are a few people out there who would enjoy a more upmarket fuel-sipping small car. [via MotorAuthority]
