Volkswagen Golf GTD On Its Way To The UK

Grey Volkswagen Golf GTD

There’s great news for car lovers in the UK, as Volkswagen are bringing their Golf GTD to the UK - the most powerful ever Golf they have produced, and one that is known for its easy-driving capability. For anyone who is excited by the prospect of driving a powerful car, this is definitely one to get pumped up about. So what exactly makes it so powerful, and what can British drivers expect from this model in particular when it comes to the UK? Let’s take a look at the vehicle in detail to find out more.

The Most Powerful GTD

Put simply, the new Golf GTD is the most powerful one to date, and as drivers of past instalments will know, that is certainly saying something. The diesel-powered Golf is going to offer the dual benefit of both high-performance but also long range, with a potential 600 miles available from one tank of fuel. It is also going to have a top speed of 152mph, and the 0-60 is around 7.1 seconds, so it really is a powerful and speedy little number.

Low Emissions, High Performance

Arguably the main selling point of the new Golf however is one that can be said for a few of the recent versions too, which is that it is a car offering high performance but while producing very low emissions. As such, it’s a perfect choice for anyone who wants to drive a powerful car without damaging the planet, and that is something that is very popular right now.

The New Golf In Detail

Looking closer at the new Golf GTD, we can see it has a maximum torque figure of 295 ft lb and 197 bhp, which is an increase on the 181 bhp of the previous model. The top speed and acceleration, meanwhile, remain close to the older Golf, and that is aided in part by the standard-fit 7-speed DSG transmission. The ability to go 600 miles from a single tank is a result of a fuel economy of 51.4-54.3 mpg (WLTP). Plus, as we have alluded to already, the emissions are low at around 137 g/km (WLTP), which is going to help the environment but also means lower running costs for drivers. Nitrogen oxide emissions are also lower than previous models.

Beautiful Style

It’s also a beautiful car to look at, complete with a styling pack with an illuminated front grille and a honeycomb LED fog lamp which has already proved very popular with British drivers. The headlights have Dynamic Light Assist, and the alloys are Bakersfield, so well suited to a high-performance and incredibly stylish vehicle.

Something For Everyone

The Volkswagen Golf GTD is going to be extremely popular, in part due to the fact that it has something for everyone. Whether you want petrol, diesel, hybrid, performance petrol or diesel, you are going to have it. The Golfs have always been high-selling, and this new addition is going to follow in the same direction. It’s definitely one to look out for.
