L.A. Auto Show: 2010 Audi A3 TDI Earns Green Car Of The Year

December 4, 2009

The 2010 Audi A3 TDI has been dubbed Green Car of the Year, making it the second time in a row that a clean diesel vehicle has taken the honor. (Last year's winner? The 2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI.) Ron Cogan -- editor of Green Car Journal, which presented the award yesterday at the L.A. Auto Show -- pointed out that although there are a number of hybrids and EVs on the market and in the works, the A3 best answers the question, "What about our needs [for fuel efficient cars] now?" The 2010 Audi A3 TDI runs $30,775 in the U.S., and it scored a solid 8 on the TCC review scale -- just in case you're curious. [GreenCarReports]
