If you’re looking for a practical hatchback that offers a fine balance of power and efficiency, why look any further than the impressive new Volkswagen Golf GTD?
Good looks and clever design ensure that the Golf GTD appeals to a very wide range of drivers. A purposeful stance, striking black-honeycomb radiator grille, and standard-issue 18-inch alloy wheels represent just some of the car’s most conspicuous qualities. The vehicle can be selected with a three or five-door body style too – the latter option making an ideal choice for busy families. There’s good head and legroom in both compartments, and the driver benefits from a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel and adjustable position that make it easy to get comfortable. This sporty hatchback also features a 380-litre boot space; with split-folding rear seats dropped, cargo capacity increases to a very useful 1,270 litres.
The easy-to-drive Golf GTD is typically issued with a 2.0-litre 184bhp diesel engine as standard. This produces 380Nm of torque, allowing the car to go from 0-60mph in approximately 7.3 seconds. Nevertheless, the same unit manages up to 64.2mpg and produces CO2 emissions from just 116g/km.
Technology and safety
Wherever you travel, an eight-speaker sound system is in place to provide you with your favourite tunes and speech-based content. Thanks to a touchscreen interface and steering wheel-mounted controls, operation is safe and easy. Bluetooth connectivity is included too, allowing you to stream music and enjoy hands-free telephone communications. Also featured is an eight-inch touchscreen satellite navigation system, which offers voice control, 3D mapping and more.
Rated a full five stars by Euro NCAP for its crash-test capabilities, the Golf GTD is a very safe vehicle choice. As well as protective features – including numerous airbags and ISOFIX child-seat attachments – a wide range of driver aids are included, such as Electronic Stability Control, Tyre Pressure Monitoring and Post-collision Braking.
