2013 Volkswagen Golf GTD First Drive Review
2013 Volkswagen Golf GTD: Performance... diesel?
Diesel truck? Yes. Diesel station wagon? Sure. Diesel van? Of course. Diesel… hot hatchback? Hmm.
The answer to that last question might just be yes as well. You see, zee Germans from Volkswagen love cramming oil-burning mills under the hood of nearly every vehicle that they make. One of those vehicles is the ever-popular Golf, and we already get a TDI version here in the States. Still, the lucky Europeans (isn’t it always the case?) have another diesel-swilling hatchback available across the sea. This one, however, is based on the GTI, and it comes equipped with an adjustable suspension, quick shifting tiptronic gearbox, and the type of performance you’d expect from a hot hatch… except it’s drinking the expensive stuff.
