The new 2008 Volkswagen Jetta TDI has the new 2.0 liter four-cylinder BLUETEC diesel engine that was announced in the beginning of this month. The 2.0 liter Common Rail diesel engine, used in a Jetta, uses a nitrogen oxide reservoir catalytic converter to reduce the levels of nitrogen oxide.


The Jetta TDI is one of the first products of the BLUETEC offensive initiated jointly by Audi, Mercedes-Benz, and Volkswagen. The goal of this partnership is to establish the concept of BLUETEC as a uniform label for clean and highly fuel efficient diesel-powered cars and SUVs with 50-state compliant engines.
