Dout it! The economy from the ups petrol engine is so good I don't think VW would bother with a diesel! I think they will concentrate on the eUp that's on it's way!

yeah the up gt looks sweet. but just wondering if they stuck a 1.2 tdi from the polo it would be able to get 90mpg motorway. waiting till beginning of next year to buy a up gt cos I think I would get bored with 75bhp

What most people fail to see is that unless you do more than 15,000 miles a year you don't merit a diesel engine. More so when the brilliant petrol engine in the up! is so efficient. It would truly need to be an amazing diesel unit with returns close to 100mpg to warrant the investment. It may well come, but not for some years to come.

In this case I understand, but fear you may be waiting a while!
