2013 Volkswagen Golf 7 GTD UK pricing announced

Article by Anita Panait, on April 18, 2013

Interested buyers in the United Kingdom could now order the latest version of the Volkswagen Golf GTD that was unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show in March. The new Golf GTD has a starting price of £25,285 on the road – just £310 more than the older model despite improvements in performance and equipment.

The new Golf GTD is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged common rail diesel engine (TDI) that provides up to 184 PS of output and 380 Nm (280 lbs ft) of torque from just 1,750 rpm.  This power allows the new Golf GTD to accelerate from zero to 62 mph and it takes just 7.5 seconds to achieve a top speed of 142 mph while consuming just a gallon of fuel for every 67.3 miles and emitting 109 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer traveled.

With the optional six-speed DSG, the new Golf GTD has fuel consumption figures of 62.8 mpg and CO2 emission numbers of 119 g/km. This was the same numbers that the first generation Golf BlueMotion, rolled out in 2007, has registered, only that the new Golf GTD has more power and torque.

The new Golf GTD features smoked LED rear lights with LED license plate illumination as well as standard bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights. It also features chrome dual tailpipes, 18-inch ‘Nogaro’ alloy wheels with 225/40 tyres, side skirts, a rear diffuser, sports suspension and a large roof spoiler. Unique GTD features distinguish the interior of the vehicle.

The interior is laden with tartan ‘Jacara Grey’ sports seats, a black roof lining, sports steering wheel, and stainless steel pedals. It also comes with a GTD-specific gear lever, trim strips and instrument cluster.  Standard features include progressive steering, white ambience lighting, 2Zone climate control and a touchscreen infotainment system that includes DAB digital radio, Bluetooth and iPod connectivity.
