Below is VWofA response to inquiry on TDI available in 2006/2007:

Thank you for contacting the Volkswagen website. We have been updated with some 2007 model year availability in relation to TDI/diesel engines.

We will offer the 2006 Jetta TDI in 2007. This means there will not be a 2007 Jetta TDI, but there will be an extended run of the 2006 TDI Jetta models. In other words, you will be able to buy a TDI Jetta in 2007, but it will not be a 2007 model, it will be a 2006.

We will also offer the New Beetle TDI the same way as noted above.

We will be offering a 2007 model year TDI V10 Touareg. This will be the only 2007 model year TDI available at this time.

Currently, there are no plans to offer the Passat Sedan or Wagon with a diesel in 2007.

We hope this information is helpful to you with making a purchase decision. Thank you again for allowing us the opportunity to assist you further.


So… in summary… confirmation of 2006 Jetta overrun policy. Mention of a similar 2006 New Beetle overrun policy. Confirmation of 2007 Touareg V10 TDI.
