That would be the VW Golf TDi ... stock rating is 150 bhp and 38/46 mpg from a
1.9L diesel.  I thought about buying one myself, but they are illegal in CA.
The 1.9L TDi motor is also available in the new Rabbit and the Jetta.  There's
also a 2.0 version available in the Passat & Passat wagon.  (everywhere but CA)
