2015 Volkswagen Golf GTD Variant

2015 Volkswagen Golf GTD Variant
The Golf Variant from Volkswagen is one of the most successful compact Variant cars with over two million units sold. It is a car as versatile as the legendary 'Swiss army knife'. In its recently launched latest generation, the best-seller – that is based on the Golf VII – was refined into a stylish all-round vehicle that addresses the needs and wishes of a wide variety of target groups. Today, the range of versions begins with the Golf Variant 1.2 TSI BlueMotion Technology Trendline with 63 kW / 85 PS and finishes with the new Golf R Variant with 221 kW / 300 PS. The model range was extended to follow the trend of increasingly higher demand for more customised versions of the Golf Variant. That is why no fewer than three new and exclusive models that follow this trend are making their debut in 2015, causing a stir in the compact Variant class: the Golf Alltrack, the already mentioned Golf R Variant and the Golf GTD Variant. They were all created based on the modular transverse matrix (MQB) – an innovative technology system in which Volkswagen can implement all conceivable drive types.
• Higher. The new Golf Alltrack combines the best of on-road and off-road driving. A lifestyle Variant car with standard four-wheel drive and a custom design, which plays out its strengths on all types of terrain and does never quit, not even on the highest of mountain passes on the way to a skiing vacation. Parameters: 4MOTION, four torque-strong engines with 81 kW / 110 PS to 135 kW / 184 PS and an additional 20 mm of ground clearance.
• Faster. The new Golf R Variant was developed by Volkswagen R GmbH for those who really want to drive faster. Faster in the sense of a top-class sports car. Therefore, Volkswagen transferred the Golf R engine and chassis to the Golf Variant, resulting in one of the sportiest compact Variant cars. Parameters: four-wheel drive Variant with 221 kW / 300 PS and driving properties that even guarantee exceptional performance on the North Loop of the Nürburgring.
• Further. The new Golf GTD Variant was designed for people who want to go further in a sporty fashion and are looking for a very dynamic car with very low fuel consumption. For the first time, Volkswagen has therefore transferred the GTD idea to an Variant car – a new generation of long-distance express cars. Parameters: front-wheel drive 135 kW / 184 PS, aerodynamically refined with 15 mm lower sport chassis.

2015 Volkswagen Golf GTD VariantGolf GTD Variant – further

2015 Volkswagen Golf GTD Variant
First GTD as a Golf Variant. It was 33 years ago when the first Golf GTD entered the market. It became an icon of all sporty diesels. This was due to the fascinating and almost unique ability of the GTD to combine the performance of a sports car with the fuel economy of a small car. Now, for the first time since the original Golf GTD made its debut in 1982, Volkswagen is launching the sportiest of all compact diesels as an Variant. The agile diesel Variant car is powered by a 135-kW / 184-PS 2.0-litre TDI engine. Combined fuel consumption with a 6-speed manual gearbox: 4.4 l/100 km (equating to 115 g/km CO2). Optionally, Volkswagen offers the GTD Variant with a dual-clutch gearbox (DSG). With a low fuel consumption figure of just 4.8 l/100 km (CO2: 125 g/km), the new Variant proves to be exceptionally efficient. It achieves low emissions using technologies such as a NOx storage catalytic converter.


2015 Volkswagen Golf GTD VariantFront-wheel drive, XDS+, ESC Sport. The 2.0-litre common rail turbodiesel of the front-wheel drive Golf GTD Variant is characterised by extreme power. This engine develops its maximum torque of 380 Nm already at a low 1,750 rpm. This focused turbocharged efficiency lets the new Golf GTD Variant accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 7.9 seconds with either gearbox version, while a top speed of 231 km/h (DSG: 229 km/h) reveals it to be a true sports car among diesel Variants. Other attributes of its special positioning are its sporty customised design in GT style and standard features such as the XDS+ driving dynamics function, ESC Sport, progressive steering, sport chassis (lowered by 15 mm) and 17-inch ('Curitiba') wheels with 225 tyres.
