You can’t buy a Golf GTD at the moment. Volkswagen will wait for the Mk8 to reintroduce a Golf with a more powerful oil-burner – a not inconvenient delay when you consider the amount of dust there is left to settle.
Volkswagen claim the GTI goes from 0-62 in 6.4 seconds, which is about a second faster than the GTD . The GTI has a 2.0-litre petrol engine with 217bhp which is 36 more than the GTD . However, its 350Nm of torque output is 30Nm less, and it returns over 20mpg less at the pumps, with a figure of 47.1mpg.
Gran Turismo Diesel
Volkswagen Golf GTD reliability The fact that the Golf GTD shares a large proportion of its parts with other models in the VW range should ensure this range-topping model is just as reliable as any other Golf diesel.
Volkswagen has released some details for the Golf GTD , a diesel version of the eighth-generation Golf GTI. The GTD will have a 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel engine with 197 horsepower.
The eighth-generation 2020 VW Golf GTD features the most powerful diesel engine in the model’s history. The new 2020 Volkswagen Golf GTD is now available to order for a starting price of £32,790. It’s the most powerful and efficient GTD yet , and packs all the Golf’s latest technology.
Golf R – The R model has a 2.0 litre tuned Turbo engine. It’s a newer model and is aimed more at performance as opposed to comfort. It’s notably a lot quicker than the R32 . It has a 2.0 litre turbo engine (like the R ), however it’s designed for comfort as well as performance (like the R32 ).
The Golf R is that kind of car that masks the imperfections of the road thanks to its AWD system. The GTI , meanwhile, is more incisive, more responsive in its accelerations even if it has fewer horses to play with under the hood. On this day, the four-wheel drive of the Golf R gave it an unsurmountable advantage.
Re: GTD what does it mean . ( Gran Turismo Diesel (just like GTI is Gran Turismo fuel Injection)
GTD look like a GTI and has more power over a regular TDI . Basically the full underpinnings of a GTi regarding suspension and brakes, along with the interior and exterior, and it has the Euro Spec TDi motor that has 170hp and 256lbft if I’m not mistaken. It’s like the TDI Cup, GLi with the TDi motor.
Getting Things Done
The R in Golf R stands for Racing.
The standard three-door GTD (with a manual gearbox) returns 61.4 mpg on average, whereas the thirstier GTI petrol model will do little more than 44mpg. If you choose a standard manual five-door version, the GTD’s economy drops to 60.1 mpg – and it’s the same with the DSG gearbox regardless of body type.
