Volkswagen: World Premiere of the Golf GTD

VW unveils its innovations for the Golf at the 2020 GIMS.
 

Volkswagen is to celebrate the world premiere of the Golf GTD at the GIMS from 5 to 15 March.

The 8th generation top-of-the-range diesel version of the Golf will uphold the long tradition of the GTD. Back in 1982, VW presented the very first Golf GTD. At that time, the make brought fresh impetus to the compact car with its turbo diesel and sports features borrowed from the Golf GTI Mk1.

Nearly four decades later, this same concept is still relevant: Volkswagen is to launch on the market one of the most economical and sporty compact models in the shape of its Golf GTD. A significant increase in performance goes hand in hand with a reduction in emissions: the efficiency of the TDI engine has been considerably improved and CO2 emissions have been yet further reduced while at the same time improving responsiveness.

Thanks to the new twin-dosing SCR with double injection of AdBlue, NOx emissions are significantly reduced compared to its predecessor. This makes the TDI of the new Golf GTD one of the cleanest combustion engines in the world.
