Diesel Battle: Golf 7 2.0 150 HP vs Golf 6 GTD 170 HP [Video]
text size: A- A+
The 2013 model looks very good and besides the 150 hp, it also offers 350 Nm of torque (258 lb-ft), the same as the new GTI. It gets to 100 km/h in 8.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 212 km/h (132 mph).
An the other hand, the GTD doesn't look half bad either, and offers the exact same torque level plus 20 more hp. Thanks to that, it only needs 8.1 seconds to reach 100 km/h and goes on to a higher top speed of 220 km/h (137 mph).
If you think that's close, just watch the two DSG-equipped cars go up against each other in the video below.

Sorry to correct your article: 350 Nm, not 250. 250 Nm you get from a Golf IV - 1.9 TDI. Anyway, unbelievably close until 180 km/h. After that, you feel those extra 20 hp from the Golf 6 GTD.

Surely Golf 7 GTD would be a more interesting comparison
