Volkswagen Golf 6 GTD Official Details and Photos
text size: A- A+
The 170 horsepower common rail TDI engine that powers the GTD, controlled via either a manual or a dual clutch transmission (DSG), can make the car reach 100 kilometers per hour from a standstill in 8.1 seconds and allow it to top at 220 km/hour. The 2.0l four cylinder turbocharged powerplant eats about 5.3l every hundred kilometers, a figure which means it can go for some 1,000 km on a single 54 liter full tank.
To further make the GTD different from the series diesel engines, Volkswagen GTD will use a "sound generator", an electro-magnetic device which varies the volume made by the exhaust depending on engine revolutions, to give you a sportier GT-like sound.
Even if summertime is still a few months away, Golf GTD comes with a winter package, boasting heated windshield washer nozzles, heated front seats, headlight cleaning system and low washer fluid indicator light.
Sales of the Golf GTD will begin sometimes in May at prices that have not yet been disclosed. Volkswagen is counting on the GTD's low fuel consumption rates to appeal to those who need both a powerful and fuel efficient car.
Update on April 9th: Volkswagen Golf 6 was named the 2009 World Car of the Year.
Update on April 21st: Volkswagen Golf 6 GTD UK pricing released.
