2013 Volkswagen Golf GTD Test Drive & Car Video Review

http://www.autobytel.com/volkswagen/?id=32972 The Volkswagen GTD is one of the most fun and engaging cars you can drive. The diesel engine provides tons of torque while the DSG transmission is nearly perfect. This European only car is based on the GTI Hatchback except that instead of a 2.0 liter turbocharged engine, there is a TDI engine under the hood. The VW GTD combines the sportiness found in the GTI with the miserly fuel economy found in the Golf TDI. In Europe the Volkswagen GTD has a base price right under $40k and this little diesel hatchback could make its way to the U.S. as a 2014 MK7 model. Say you are in the market for an economical car but you want it to look sporty, get good gas mileage, and be fun to drive; but the Toyota Prius just won't do. The Volkswagen GTD might be right up your alley. This car is essentially a diesel version of the GTI. Unfortunately we do not get this car here in the U.S. But if enough people write to Volkswagen, there is a good chance this car might show up in 2014 as a MK7 model. Volkswagen has already made a big commitment to the U.S. market with diesels. There are a few different models with TDI engine options including the: Golf, Jetta, Passat, Beetle, and Touareg. Thanks to some minor intake, Exhaust, injector, and turbo modifications; the Volkswagen GTD makes 170 horsepower and 258 lb-ft. of torque. Just to put that into perspective: the GTI has 30 horsepower more but 51 lb-ft of torque less than the GTD. Although the GTI is a bit faster than the GTD, the latter is much more fuel efficient. Since the GTD is not sold in American, we are testing a German Spec car. So the speedometer is in km/h and the radio stations do not work. But there is something fun and exciting about driving a vehicle you cannot get here. Behind the wheel the GTD looks just like the GTI with the flat bottom steering wheel, interior features, and DSG transmission. The diesel engine provides tons of torque and the driving dynamics are excellent. This car provides a lot of fun even though it's a diesel.

2014 VW Golf 7 GTD (184hp) - 0-224 km/h acceleration (1080p)
I was highly anticipating this car for month and now I am able to present to you the fast Autobahn acceleration test with the 2014 Volkswagen Golf 7 (VII) GTD, the diesel-powered GTI with its 2.0 4-cylinder Diesel, 184 hp and 380Nm of torque. This car is equipped with the standard 6-speed manual gearbox instead of the DSG in the "old" Golf 6 GTD I have driven, and the gearbox is surprisingly good! Besides that the new engine delivers a good punch up to 4.500 rpm and is very fuel efficient if you drive the car normally. I managed to have an overall consumption of 6.1 liters / 100 km which I think is very fair considering my quick driving for this video. If the questions comes up if this car had the optional Exhaust sound package: The answer is NO, the Sport & Sound package that comes with a speaker in the Exhaust was not part of the option list. There will be a full DRIVE & SOUND coming out in the next few days, so make sure to check back soon. As always, I am highly anticipating your COMMENTs on this car and please make sure to LIKE & SUBSCRIBE!

2015 Volkswagen Golf 7 R (300hp) - 0-257 km/h acceleration (1080p)
Super FAST Autobahn ride with the all new 2014/2015 VW Golf 7 R powered by a strong 2.0 TSI (300hp, 380Nm) and the well know 6-speed DSG transmission. Before the debate starts wether this car could have been even quicker I would like you to consider that the run has been made on an Autobahn piece that was slightly UPHILL between start and finish, on my usual place the traffic was to much! So therefore I respect the figures of under 20 sec. to 200 km/h even more and your guts would make you feel that its even faster than that. Top speed on speedo is a limited 266 km/h, at least that's what my senile dad managed to do;-) The inside sound generator is very present in "RACE" mode but I would consider this as a GOOD thing, cause it sounds amazing and powerful. Overall I was really impressed by the power that VW managed to get out of this 2.0 TFSI, it feels equally fast to a M135i or an A 45 AMG. But what do you think? Please LIKE / COMMENT & SUBSCRIBE and watch out for the full Drive & Sound in the upcoming days. Cheers!
