I guess that market is "owned" by VW, a Tiguan 2.0 TDI 6spd will be offered in 2015 in Canada, as per a local dealer. but it makes sense to drop A3 TDI when Golf TDI is $15k cheaper essentially same car underneath and VW through options has more to offer at least here in Canada but again I've seen Audi/VW North America or Canada making goofy decisions based on bogus survey/marketing numbers.
