Last Wednesday at the LA Auto Show, Volkswagen of American unveiled a preview of their 2009 Jetta TDI Sport in Lazer blue. It is acclaimed to be the cleanest diesel ever, using a 2.0 liter four-cylinder TDI engine. The car will be available in all 50 states.

The Sport model comes equipped with a GTI-spec list of parts including wheels, seats, steering wheel and more.

The new engine meets Tier II/Bin 5 standards without the use of urea injection. Instead, it uses a nitrous oxide storage catalyst which reduces NOx emissions by 90%.

The engine management changes operating modes to treat the NOx stored in the catalyst. A filter further reduces emissions allowing the diesel to be held at the same standard as gasoline engines.

The 16v motor will produce 140hp and 235 lb/ft of torque. VW claims fuel economy will be increased by over 30% in comparison to identical gas models.
