2016 Volkswagen Golf GTD Redesign

With VW leading the way in US diesel sales, there’s always been one question on our minds. While we’ve enjoyed the Jetta and Golf TDI models, we’ve always lusted after the European GTD variant that blends GTI style with turbo-diesel economy and longevity.

Well it appears VW either read our minds or heard our prayers because they flew us out to Berlin to sample the new European Golf GTD. This is based on the latest Mk7 MQB platform, which is part of VW’s new modular construction technology and offers several advantages over the outgoing Mk6 monocoque.

To our delight and expectation, the low-end torque had us zipping through the city streets like a cyclist on cocaine. We couldn’t get enough of the power delivery and smooth shifting gearbox.

As a final thought, the GTD will provide plenty of opportunities for the aftermarket, with a set of coilovers, sway bars and 19″ wheels enhancing the handling. You can also expect software upgrades for the TDI motor since Europe will have been tweaking them for several years before we see it. So stock or modified, the GTD will make a very appealing package for US motorists thanks to the peace of mind diesel brings at the pump.

As we entered the unrestricted speed zones on the A2 autobahn, we found ourselves grinning like hyenas as we reached terminal velocity within a very short time. There’s an enormous satisfaction in hitting a 143mph speed limiter on public roads and not risk punishment in the process.

2016 Volkswagen Golf GTD Engine

One anomaly was the engine noise, or rather the simulated sound of a gasoline engine piped into the cabin. Because we were unfamiliar with the system, it could become confusing where you were in the power band when overtaking or downshifting into a corner. We found ourselves leaving our foot planted because the engine noise suggested we still had more to come, yet the engine had actually run out of puff and required another gear.

This European Mk7 GTD boasts 184hp and 280 lb-ft from its 2.0L turbo-diesel – that’s up 14hp and 28 lb-ft on the Mk6 model, yet achieves 56mpg on the European test cycle. Of course, it remains to be seen whether the US version would maintain exactly the same specification. However, we decided to strap ourselves into a six-speed manual GTD and hit the streets of Berlin.
