LA Auto Show: Audi A3 TDI is the 2010 Green Car of the Year – rpmGo.com



The 2009 Los Angeles Auto Show wasn’t just about new concepts, new cars or interesting technologies, as it was also the place where the Green Car Journal awarded the Audi A3 TDI model the 2010 Green Car of the Year title.

This marks the second year in a row for a TDI model to win the prestigious award, as the Volkswagen Jetta TDI managed to win the 2009 edition of the competition. The Audi faced stiff competition as the other four finalists were the Toyota Prius, Mercury Milan Hybrid, Honda Insight and Volkswagen Golf TDI.

Considering it manage to win last year, and had two finalists in this year’s event, the TDI engine is showing that you don’t need a hybrid to be green. Who knows what the future will hold for the oil-burner which just celebrated 20 years of existence.
