Volkswagen to Debut New Golf GTD in Geneva

No Golf GTD coming to the US

Traditionally, diesel automobiles aren't that popular in the United States. Volkswagen has been offering a number of diesel models in the US that have proven to be popular for quite a while. Other automakers, including Mazda and others, are bringing new diesel-powered cars to the US.

Volkswagen has unveiled a new diesel-powered Golf GTD ahead of the Geneva motor show that won't be coming to the US. It's too bad, because this diesel-powered car rivals the gasoline powered GTI available in the US. The Golf GTD as a two-liter four-cylinder turbo diesel engine producing 184 hp and 280 pound-feet of torque.

Those numbers are substantially higher than the Golf TDI available in the US already. The Golf GTD promises to put 62 mph in 7.5 seconds and has a top speed of 143 mph when fitted with the six-speed manual transmission. European fuel economy numbers for the vehicle using the European test procedure landed a rating of 56 mpg. More details are sure to be revealed in Geneva.
