VW’s US Line-Up to Remain Limited - No New Euro Models Coming
text size: A- A+
Apparently, none of VW’s current models would be worth the hassle of importing, except the Tiguan, which we and most other US buyers agree to that it would greatly benefit from a diesel version. To us, it seems like VW doesn’t really want to bring their top-notch stuff to the US, like their 1.4-liter turbocharged unit, or the 1.6-liter TDI, or any number of technical innovations which are only available in Europe.
Since they already sell cars with the 2.0-liter TDI, surely the 1.6-liter can be made to pass any and all the strict US emissions regulations, otherwise, the American buyer will be missing out on a lot of good stuff which VW seems to be keeping locked up, on purpose! A wagon or estate version of the Golf would also be appreciated Stateside, as it would offer the same space (if not more) of an SUV, but without the downsides that it brings - a VW Golf ‘wagon’ could even reach cult status if marketed in a smart way.
