A 2.0-liter four-cylinder TDI engine with an output of 147 kW (200 hp) works on board the long-distance athlete. The Golf GTD engine impresses with a high maximum torque of 400 Nm. The TDI delivers this power even at very low engine speeds. Like all turbodiesels of the new Golf, the drive of the Golf GTD is coupled to two SCR catalysts connected in series (SCR = Selective Catalytic Reduction). Thanks to this new twindosing SCR system with double AdBlue injection, nitrogen oxide emissions are significantly reduced compared to the predecessor. Volkswagen offers the Golf GTD as standard in combination with a 7-speed DSG.
