The latest version of the Volkswagen Golf GTD, which was introduced at the Geneva International Motor Show last month, is now available to order in the UK, with prices starting at £25,285 on the road – just £310 more than the previous model despite enhancements in performance and equipment. The new GTD is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged common rail diesel engine (TDI) with 184 PS. Maximum torque – the characteristic that arguably best defines the easily accessible performance of the GTD – has risen from 350 Nm (258 lbs ft) to 380 Nm (280 lbs ft) from just 1,750 rpm.  Acceleration from zero to 62 mph takes just 7.5 seconds, while the top speed is 142 mph, yet the new Golf GTD consumes just one gallon of fuel every 67.3 miles, making for CO2 emissions of only 109 g/km. 

With the optional six-speed DSG, fuel consumption is 62.8 mpg and CO2 emissions of 119 g/km. As evidence of the progress which Volkswagen has made over the years in combining performance and economy, when the first generation Golf BlueMotion went on sale at the end of 2007, it too returned 62.8 mpg and had CO2 emissions of 119 g/km.
