I believe Tiptronic is the term used for the Porsche gearbox. The gas/fuel car will have the DSG or S-Tronic option. As far as will the TDI have it I am not sure but the DSG is offered on other diesel vehicles made by VW/Audi so I don't see why this one would be an exception.

Now I know where I am getting confused. Here is an article on the Tiptronic

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiptronic

Porsche was the first to use the name 'Tiptronic' so I was always under the impression that the word 'Tiptronic' was only used for Porsche but they license it. "Tiptronic® is a registered trademark, and it is owned by German sports car maker Porsche, who licenses it for use by others such as Volkswagen, Audi and Skoda."

I know the Tiptronic and DSG are available, I am not sure about the Multitronic box but I would think it is.

The DSG (Direct-Shift Gearbox) is what I prefer as it doesn't have the torque converter.
