VW presents the new Golf GTD at AMI, in Leipzig

A little later the introduction of the sixth generation of Golf GTI, Volkswagen will also present the sixth generation of another one of its sportscars, the most rational one: Golf GTD. Powered by diesel, the new vehicle will show up at the autoshow Auto Mobil International (AMI), in Leipzig, from March 28 to April 5.

Apart from the appearance, the same one presented by the new generation Golf, the GTD presents some very interesting features, such as the 2-litre turbodiesel engine able to generate 170 bhp (125 kW) at 4,200 rpm and 350 Nm between 1,750 rpm and 2,500 rpm. It allows the car to reach 222 km/h of top speed and go from 0 to 100 km/h, with the dual-clutch automated gearbox DSG, in 8.1 s. Fuel consumption is also remarkable: 17.9 km/l, what helps the car travel up to 982 km with its 55 l fuel tank.

Externally, you can say you are in front of a GTD because of the 17-inch alloy Seattle wheels, the chromed radiator horizontal stripes, a different air diffuser at the rear, dual chrome tailpipes on the left side of the diffuser and the GTD badges in the front grille and at the back of the car.
