Still trying to figure out how the Passat isn't a mid-sized car?

2010 Volkswagen Golf TDI Four-Door, an AW Drivers Log

MOTORSPORTS EDITOR MAC MORRISON: This Golf TDI is an excellent little vehicle that's fun to drive and quite efficient. ...

NEWS EDITOR GREG MIGLIORE: ...
The Golf TDI is fun to drive, light, functional and a respectable size. And this turbodiesel with a six-speed manual is enjoyable. Too many times when the argument for fuel economy is broached, people think we all have to drive Smart cars or Honda Fits, or underpowered hybrids like the Insight. If you want a small car for urban commuting then great, but if you need something that is actually a real-size car and drives normal, you have to go with something like this diesel Golf....

EXECUTIVE EDITOR--AUTOWEEK.COM BOB GRITZINGER: I found myself marveling, over and over, at the craftsmanship, the quality materials and the fun yet frugal powertrain.

EDITORIAL INTERN JAKE LINGEMAN: ...
...I'd also say there's no replacement for the torque of a diesel. For my money, I'd take this over the sweet GTI we had in recently. The diesel gets more torque, better gas mileage and can hide in a crowd if necessary. You'll also save about $7,000....

Race of Champions fields natural-gas-powered Volkswagen Scirocco

[img]http://autoweek.com/storyimage/CW/20101027/MOTORSPORTS/101029896/SciroccoR.jpg?ref=AR&maxW=400
[/img]

A natural-gas-powered Volkswagen Scirocco R will be among the field at the Race of Champions on Nov. 27 and 28 in Germany.

The performance version of the Scirocco has a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that produces 225 hp and 202 lb-ft of torque. It also has a push-to-pass button that increases output by 50 hp for short periods.

But the Scirocco R uses bio-compressed natural gas as racing fuel instead of the conventional racing gas. This reduces CO2 emissions by 80 percent when assessing the combined emissions of the race and logistics operations, according to Volkswagen.

Enthusiasts spoke, and Volkswagen listened. VW announced Thursday that the diminutive and powerful Golf R is coming to the United States in 2012.

VW said the Golf R will have a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with a significant increase in horsepower over the 200-hp GTI.

The car will also get Haldex 4Motion all-wheel drive, a sport-tuned electronic stability program, larger brake rotors and a fortified suspension for athletic driving.
