VW recently unveiled the all-new VW Golf aka Rabbit in the US. Know comes word that the diesel version of the new Golf will be offered in the US by this time next year.

VW recently released the TDI version of the Jetta in the US. So far demand has been high for the diesel version of the Jetta and VW hopes to duplicate that success with diesel versions of its other popular models. Before the US gets the Rabbit TDI, we wil get a diesel version of the Touareg SUV in March 2009. This is the same time that the new Rabbit will start showing up here as well. The Touareg will be powered by a 3.0L V6 diesel engine.

By fall 2009 the Rabbit will be offered with a 2.5L five-cylinder gas engine or a 2.0L diesel engine in the US.

There is still no word when a diesel Tiguan will be offered in the US.
