Volkswagen Golf 2020 video review

  Volkswagen Golf 2020 video review We drive the 8th-generation Golf to find out if it can remain the family hatchback kingBut it’s also the end of an era. Volkswagen now sees its future in the pure-electric ID 3, meaning that although the new Golf will be the brand’s sales powerhouse for several years to come, as a concept it exists on borrowed time (not to sound overly dramatic). Still, we’d expect this one to once again compete for class honours against not only its usual rivals from Audi, Ford and Renault but now also BMW, whose new front-wheel-drive 1-Series has impressed.

Volkswagen has confirmed that the GTD version of its new Golf will make its debut at the Geneva Volkswagen claims the powertrain in the new GTD is "the most powerful and, thanks to twin-dosing The official confirmation follows the inadvertent publication of the GTD 's 197 bhp output, and that of

The new VW Golf GTD promises lower emissions and new interior technology. Few details have been confirmed, with VW only revealing that the new car will use a four-cylinder diesel engine. We expect this engine to be a turbocharged 2.0-litre that could boast around 197 bhp , as per a recent leak.

The new Volkswagen Golf GTD has been given a major power hike, yet the revamped diesel powertrain is claimed to be one of the cleanest of its type.

First launched in 1984, the GTD is conceived as the long-range ‘endurance athlete’ of Volkswagen's hot hatch family. This latest version of the Mk8 Golf features styling updates to match the new versions of the GTI and GTE and has a claimed range of more than 500 miles.

It's powered by a new version of Volkswagen’s EA288 Evo four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine, which has been tuned for 197bhp, up from 181bhp in the previous GTD, and 295lb ft of torque.

The revamped engine uses two selective catalytic reduction filters with dual AdBlue injection. Volkswagen claims the system “greatly reduces” NOx emissions over the previous model, although it has yet to give full emissions figures.

Unlike the the GTI, the GTD is offered with only a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. It uses the same suspension set-up, with McPherson struts up front and a multi-link system at the rear. It also features Volkswagen's new Vehicle Dynamics Manager system, which controls both the electric differential (XDS) and the adaptive dampers (Dynamic Chassis Control).

Continuing from our last video, here is Part 2 of the 286 VW Golf MK7 Golf GTD . We offer Bespoke Tuning Products, Custom ECU Mapping, Diagnostics, Servicing, Repairs as as well as a wide range of New & Used Genuine and OEM quality parts.

The GTD sits 15mm lower to the ground than the standard Golf, plus it features a front axle differential lock and sound actuator. Like all other Mk8 Golf variants, it will be offered only in five-door form.

The GTD’s exterior and interior design tweaks mirror those of the GTI and GTE. All three feature a restyled front grille, a large honeycomb-patterned air intake, a diffuser and a roof spoiler. The GTD also gains a silver light bar across its grille.

The GTD badging is now all in silver (it's red for the GTI and blue for the GTE), and the car sits on 18in or 19in alloy wheels. The diesel also gains red-painted brake calipers, like the GTI.

As with the regular Mk8 Golf, the interior largely is largely devoid of physical controls, with many functions being moved onto a large 10.25in digital instrument display (which features GTD-only silver display options) and a 10in infotainment touchscreen. It also gains a new sports steering wheel with capacitive touch controls.
