Diesel in the US

5338 Views 12 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  BobP
Unfortunately I live in Buffalo NY and am unable to purchase an Eos with the 2.0 Diesel engine in it.

As I understand it the drive-trains on these vehicles meet the US DOT emission requirements and are only unavailable based on a "marketing" decision. I was told by my dealer that the diesel will never be considered sports cars in the US market.

I am exploring what hoops I need to jump through to import a diesel Eos to the US.

Anyone out there have any information that could help? My dealer and VW USA don't seem at all interested in figuring this out.

Thanks all!

With regard to diesels not being considered sports cars I think VAG would disagree
A diesel SEAT won two rounds of the BTCC last weekend.
The only thing I don't like about them is their lack of revability
I know what you mean. I'm getting my Golf Plus on Monday and I'm hoping the DSG will ease the pain of the diesel rev issue.
