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
|Engine Power – BHP||184bhp|
Named the GTD , it’s intended to provide hot hatch-style thrills without those cars’ traditionally high running costs. Like the best performance cars, the Golf GTD’s extra pace musn’t detract from its practicality or daily use. This is, after all, still a family hatchback.
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)
The GTD will have a 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel engine with 197 horsepower.
Getting Things Done
The R in Golf R stands for Racing.
Although GTI stands for Gran Turismo Iniezione on some Italian models, Volkswagen uses GTI as shorthand for Grand Touring Injection .
Despite its strong torque, the GTD suffers from little of the wheel scrabbling under heavy acceleration that’s common in high-powered front- wheel – drive cars. There’s more body sway through corners, although there’s still loads of grip and an appropriate sense of ‘chuckability’ when the moment calls for it.
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.
